Synopsis

The Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities has organised its first Roundtable of Thought Leaders on Innovation in Cities in Singapore on the 19th and 20th of January 2015. The topic is Data. Social Behaviour. Policy.

Big data is both a challenge and an opportunity. Cities and states that take the lead to harness data can potentially realize innovative urban solutions and improve urban governance, bringing more sustainable and better lives to their people. We believe smart cities and big data also go hand-in-hand. Cities and states that embrace big data are likely to be more competitive on the global stage.

Our participants included thought leaders and key decision makers from academia, government, and business, both in and beyond Singapore. Together, we discussed big data and its implications for cities and citizens. We organised our discussion around four themes: understanding big data and how to realize a data society and economy; how big data can improve urban services and build smart cities; how big data relates to issues concerning citizens, such as privacy and participation; and how public policies can facilitate big data solutions that enable sustainable futures.
