Smart Cities Resources

Sensor networks and always-on data flows are supporting new service models and generating analytics that make modern cities and local communities faster and safer, as well as more sustainable, more livable, and more equitable. At the same time, connected smart city devices raise concerns about individuals’ privacy, autonomy, freedom of choice, and potential discrimination by institutions.
Given these significant and yet competing benefits and risks, the rapid adoption of smart city technologies around the globes raises the question: how can municipalities leverage the benefits of a data-rich society while minimizing threats to individual privacy and civil liberties?
This central repository for privacy-related guidance documents, best practices, reports, codes of conduct, and other resources can help local policymakers, technologists, and citizens navigate these complex issues.
