Cities across the world often deploy new technology in public places, collecting data that might enable energy savings, traffic reduction or a more efficient delivery of services.

Who owns this data, and are there new democratic norms that should be put in place to ensure that “smart cities” do not end up discriminating against people? Learn about the policy actions that are being taken to ensure that smart-city technologies are implemented fairly.
