Speech: The importance of big data for sustainable development of cities
The increasing availability of large datasets gives us the opportunity to make analyzes that are crucial to the development of the smart, sustainable and just cities and communities. Nevertheless, we see that policymakers and politicians today make little use of these opportunities today. The lack of big data analyzes as a basis of political decisions is a serious matter especially when it comes to sustainable development. How to change that?
