Law professors from Vermont Law School and UMKC are working with others in an interdisciplinary team to explore what types of data are being collected in smart city deployments and open data initiatives, how it is being collected, stored and released, and the relative roles and responsibilities of various participants in the associated processes. This initiative, which is a KCMO-initiated project in the MetroLab Network portfolio, is applying “people first” approaches to fashioning model policies that include timely citizen participation/representation and robust oversight, and seeking to develop a technology-based toolkit to gauge and facilitate compliance with such policies.

Policy continues to lag behind the rapid evolution of technology use and data collection, especially as the Internet of Things continues to grow in scope and functionality. We’ll guide you through various issues that cities should proactively consider, including public rights vs. private rights, privacy, responsibility and effective communication that improves the general population’s confidence in the technology and how it’s used.
