Smart Cities. Many cities say they are, others have this ambition, but few ignore the need to be closer to the citizen, sustainable, resilient, more efficient, and proactive.
There are no smart cities without data. Data collected in real time, which allow us to know the “pulse” of the city, learn from the past and take better decisions for the future. Today Lisbon integrates every day more than 2.5 million real-time data in its Smart Management Platform (data from incidents, traffic, bike sharing system, solid waste containers, mobile devices, etc.).
We are still at the beginning of a journey. The use of data is not only a technological challenge. It is also an organizational challenge, to create public organizations with decision processes supported by data, doing it in a safe way, promoting transparency and respecting citizens’ privacy.
