Building Better Cities with Better Data

Access to data and information is quickly transforming the way we make decisions. While we are all swimming in more data than we ever knew existed, the real challenge comes in making sense of it and putting it to use. We will discuss the third wave of city reform and exploring how technology and data can transform local government and the cities they serve.
