Big Cities and Big Data: The NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress from Steve Koonin

You may have heard about the launch of New York University’s Center for Urban Science and Progress (NYU-CUSP), an extraordinary consortium of academic and industrial partners backed by New York City to connect the power of the digital revolution with the challenges of global urbanization. See http://cusp.nyu.edu/ for more details.

Among the activities of this historic partnership are graduate programs in the emerging field of urban informatics—the acquisition, integration, and analysis of data to understand and improve urban systems and quality of life.

We are asking our friends and colleagues to help spread the word about these programs with talented, ambitious students and professionals who have the aptitude and desire to turn big data into life-improving solutions and technologies.
