Authors

  • Mary Taws Niagara Health

Abstract

In this book review, the author explores key lessons from Anthony M. Townsend’s Smart cities: Big data, civic hackers, and the quest for a new utopia. Although Smart Cities was published in 2013, the author suggests that it contains rich and timely wisdom for professional communicators seeking to integrate data science into their practice. Through the history of urban development and technology, Smart Cities highlights how thoughtful data collection, measurement and analysis can enhance stakeholder engagement.
