Bringing Big Data to War in Mega-Cities

Dear C&E Association Member,

The link below is provided via the CDA Institute and connects to the War on the Rocks blog and a recent analysis of the use of data to enable urban operations in mega-cities.  The analysis offers some interesting thoughts regarding the use of big data in assisting commanders to understand their urban operational environment.  Perhaps some in our community can relate to thoughts as expressed in the analysis such as “The Army must move beyond crude models and develop big data modeling for simulation training, exercises, and supporting planning and decision-making. Relying on simplistic models reinforces one-dimensional thinking and reductive hypotheses, and too often amplifies problems rather than resolving them.”
