This month, we're looking at the future of Smart Cities in the US.

But what is a Smart City? Smart City remains a broad term describing the use of data to improve the operations of a city. For the most part, cities with IoT (Internet of Things) applications such as sensors, smart lights, or other advanced technologies provide insight into things administrators and officials need to know: population patterns, infrastructure usage and public services. As cloud technology, digital information storage and other computing services make it easier to compile and analyze data, administrators can better track pollution levels, gunshots, foot traffic and other pertinent statistics to help streamline resources.

As more people across the country (and the world) migrate to urban areas, what will the future hold for this type of technology and how will it impact government and overall quality of life?
