The Array of Things: a “Big Data” Project to Make Life Better for Chicagoans

Learn about the data that the city of Chicago is collecting using sensors installed throughout neighborhoods - and why. The devices will eventually allow the city and public to instantly get block-by-block data on air quality, noise levels, as well as vehicular and pedestrian traffic. 

But how will that data be used?   Where and how stored?   For how long?  These governance questions will be addressed in the context of this groundbreaking new big data project that is being emulated in other cities.

Read the USA Today article and join us to hear more about this innovative data project.  For everyone who wants to learn more about big data, information governance - and for all Chicagoans.  How will big data impact your life?
