Policy Research in the Era of Big Data and Cloud
Over the last four years, Urban’s Technology and Data Science team has undergone a redefining digital transformation, shifting our capabilities from basic stabilization and resilience to modernization and agility, and now, to differentiation and innovation. As part of our digital transformation, we have identified three ways technology is changing public policy, and have been leveraging advancements in technology, like APIs, Big Data, and microsimulation in the cloud to drive impact and inform decision makers and policy research.
- Learn to access new sources of data and deploying cutting-edge methodologies to unlock them for rigorous analysis
- Use advanced cloud computing, AI, machine learning, and predictive analysis to strengthen and enhance microsimulation and policy analysis
- Use new communication tools and technology to make research results and products more interactive, accessible, and actionable
