Project in the Spotlight

LIVE Singapore! closes the feedback loop between people moving in the city and the digital real-time data collected by multiple networks. It provides the data back to the people who themselves generate it using an urban real-time data platform, allowing them to be more in sync with their city and make informed decisions based on the actual state of their surrounding environment. To realize this, LIVE Singapore! is developing an open platform that resembles a toolbox for real-time data, from which a community of developers may build multiple applications in a joint effort that harnesses the creative potential of citizens in extracting new value from real-time data.
