dc.description.abstract Creating new “smart cities” that incorporate innovative information and communication technologies could lead to more efficient use of infrastructure systems, such as energy and water management. The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) argues that using data-driven technologies is an effective measure to improve cities, protect them against climate change and natural disasters and accommodate the needs of cities experiencing population growth. PCAST recommends that the federal government take a proactive role in integrating innovative technologies within cities with the necessary budgeting and legislation to support the goal of creating smart cities across the nation.
