Sim City

One of the challenges of information governance in a corporation is dealing with the stupifying amount of information that gets accessed, generated, and received by the business and its employees and agents.  What if the challenge were to do that for an entire city?

“Singapore Is Taking the ‘Smart City’ to a Whole New Level,” The Wall Street Journal, April 25, 2016 R4. Singapore is a city-state that has more than 5.5 million residents.  It uses sensors and cameras to track residents, cars (and when and where they are used), construction, cleanliness of public spaces, smoking, littering, and wind-flow patterns.  Some information to be made available on a online platform.

What do you collect?  What do you use?  How do you protect it?

What can you learn from this?
