Re: Smart move, putting city's big data in cloud
The cloud itself is a well structured and flexible computing framework. The possible data mining is just one aspect of smart cities. Another big advantage is that 3rd party application developers can facilitate the APIs offered by cloud service provider to make killer-apps. From this perspective, the cloud has unlimited potential for smart cities.
