Sam Markey of Future Cities Catapult was good enough to present at our recent Future Cities event in Newcastle upon Tyne. Sam focused on a couple of recommendations made in a recent report focused on the UK ‘Northern Powerhouse’ cities that argued that, in essence, cities needed to get better at using data. By doing so, cities could provide better service to citizens.

Sam’s presentation provides several examples of how UK cities are becoming more switched on to the possibilities that better data management provides.
