Innovation in smart cities

CivesSolutions is a social enterprise that aims to improve democracy and governance by enabling active citizen participation. They provide consulting, research, and educational services for effective Smart City implementations around the globe.

Bottom-up initiatives for innovation in smart cities need a platform that connects citizens with authorities. In conjunction with CivesSolutions, at the data4good Hackathon we will build a prototype that addresses one aspect of the development process of a digital citizen’s complaint system. This prototype can then be used for further developments of the actual platform in a build-measure-learn cycle.

Method

A team of very talented data scientists have decided to help solving this challenge. They combined technologies such as Python, Java, Haskel & Javascript.
