Every day you generate data, whether you’re talking on your phone, driving your car or tracking your workouts with wearable technology. But what happens with that information?
The data we generate is widely used to advance products or develop new algorithms that drive our daily lives. And often, some of this data is accessible to the general public.
Now, imagine what communities could do with all of this information: We could understand the lives of residents, fix common problems and help build more equitable and inclusive services. Utilized well and with clear privacy principles, data could help local governments effectively tackle major community issues, such as food shortages or the spread of COVID-19.
