The genie is out of the bottle and the cart is before the horse.  Because governments are slow to adapt and because tech companies move fast there is a large gap between government’s understanding and ability to protect citizen’s right to privacy and security and tech’s ability to know more about a person’s life, habits and preferences than they know themselves.  
The solutions for closing the gap are complex, myriad and murky but for all concerned the solutions need to be found soon if Article 12 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights: No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honor and reputation.the Security of the person is a basic entitlement guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations in 1948.  Campbell Patterson

The spatial relationships that define a small region are a valuable asset, and an understanding of the pattern of those relationships can be an important instrument to drive change. For example, information about these patterns might show a municipality: (i) where bicycling infrastructure is most needed; (ii) if efficiencies can be gained by adjusting waste collection routes; and (iii) what the best locations may be for a public health “pop-up” facility. However, the collection and use of hyperlocal data creates operational and legal challenges for municipalities and other public sector entities. Fraser Mann

Fundamental to the notion of a smart city is the idea of using technology to improve services provided by the city to its residents and visitors. Increasingly, this has meant using smart devices to gather data, much/most of it location-based, on both the state of the city’s infrastructure, as well as the needs and activities of its people, as they navigate through our community.

This new smart city paradigm provides both major opportunities and major challenges: the opportunities relate to how we can gather, analyze and make the best use of these mountains of data; the challenges are about taking advantage of these opportunities, while respecting fundamental rights to privacy. Our BeSpatial/BeSmart 2019 Executive Forum will explore both the challenges and the opportunities – and finding the right balance. Roy Wiseman
