Smart Community Cyberinfrastructure
Why not have a framework for plug-and-play access to these and other tech-enabled utilities for businesses planning to setup shop in tough-to-win communities. There are indeed few limitations and a matrix of need that beg for data-driven analysis and predictors which support further development and positive generational outcomes for cities.
the Chicago pilot
Colony 5 proposes the creation of framework that will enable retail corridors to be more dynamic, responsive, and attractive to reinvestment.
Our core premise is to place startups, Lego-style, on a community wide, data-rich framework serving synthetic intellect into back office systems of business owners choosing to set up shop on our overlay. This sets the stage for more efficient business operations and more effective business operators.
newco backoffice systems
Cyberinfrastructures will help new businesses flourish with the assistance of data driven intellect from communication nodes i.e. AoT, IoT, and access to retail, Open Gov and sentiment data.
The initial elements of the Pilot will serve to interact with specific technologies used by newcos as primers for edge tech, i.e. navigation for drones and autonomous vehicles.
Cyberinfrastructures will evolve as an open platforms for innovators to develop derivative applications for social impact and/or commercial implications.
The Pilot will also accelerate creative redevelopment of lots, storefronts and surrounding parcels.
