To enable future cities to deliver services effectively, efficiently and sustainably, while keeping their citizens safe, healthy, prosperous, and well informed, requires a step-change in knowledge and understanding. WISC focuses on the means to gather city-scale data, and the apparatus to transform this data into knowledge, capitalising on emerging developments in big data and in interdisciplinary solutions to the world’s urban challenges.
