BIG DATA ARE PUT TO WORK
The European Union is investing in ICT research and innovation and developing policies to improve the quality of life of citizens. Cities create (or can favor) large technological installations to be deployed: Open data, Big Data and private large data bases are becoming reality.
This data is generated from/for specific services or phenomenon: e.g. public transportation, urban planning, health services, shopping, entertainment, culture,…
City4age has the vision that all data together have a much higher value: if properly interpreted, they allow to understand people’s behavior; understanding the behavior (and its possible decaying) is a way to actually create prevention before a problem turns into a (possibly chronic) disease.
