1. What technologies is New York employing to improve the quality of life of its citizens?

Step-By-Step Solution

1. New York City officials are using data more and more to make decisions and deploy resources rather than relying on “gut instinct” or hearsay complaints and sketchy grievance descriptions. The City is using wireless sensors to gather data and they are using data from 311, the non-emergency line for citizen complaints to make decisions. Smartphone apps may be used in a crowd-sourcing effort to encourage citizen participation and gather even more comprehensive statistics. Computer simulations will inform decision makers about the optimum combination of enforcement mechanisms and sequence of steps to maximize compliance with new rules and ordinances.
