Segmenting the population
BIG AND OPEN DATA BECOME EFFECTIVE
Smart Cities nowadays support the collection of big data about the population, allowing (through data-mining techniques) the identification of large segments sharing similar behaviors or issues. City4Age will capitalize on this possibility in various way:
- Data analytics and detection algorithm can identify clusters of people with similar behavior patterns.
- Clusters of citizens that share common possible decaying behavior can be identified, anticipating the occurrence of Cognitive Impairment or Frailty.
- Technology-based communication (via mobile devices) can be used to improve the wellbeing of the individuals belonging to the various segments, providing suggestions, tips, relevant content, prompts… all aimed at preventing people’s decline.
