Abstract

We have more data everbefore no all kinds of thing planners care about ranging from fixed objects such as building to dynamic activites such as driving behavior and at all levels of granularity from cities to individuals and everything in between.in addition .we have unprecedented access to data in real time which gives us new capacities to monitor and evaluate the state of objects (artifacts) and agents .We have technology to thank for a great deal of this .Much of what we interact with is fitted with technology sensors, and our own (consumer) technology -such as mobile phones ,tablets ,and fitnes trackers -are also valuable sensors and emitters of data. Technology is not only gererating these data but is also providing us with the cpmputational toods to analyze visualize interpret and act on amounts of data .In addition ,we have toots that are automating decision making through the embedding of intelligence, which is derived through analyses of large amounts of data.
