BTJ 5/16 - Special: Cities as new leadership centres

Back in 1990 some 43% (approx. 2.3 bln) of the global population lived in cities, whereas now 54% (3.9 bln) can be called urban dwellers. 

By 2050 two-thirds of human beings are predicted to reside in a city. This poses both a great opportunity as well as a grave risk to the future of virtually anything and anybody living on our planet. It goes without saying that the way we shape the future of urbanization will to a considerable degree – if not decisive – determine the future, bringing together at fist glance such distant from each other issues like climate change and the eradication of poverty.

City of the future, by Przemysław Myszka

The 5/2016 issue of Baltic Transport Journal in the Special section features also:

  • Demystifying big data. Transport’s next disruptor or a passing fad?, by Maxime Flament, and Andrea Toth

Big data tends to be looked upon as the silver bullet for a handful of industries. But there's a big problem with so much attention and publicity, namely the inevitable pressure that comes from the need to live up to it. This is a pity because big data can, in fact, help a lot. It’s maybe not a magic weapon, yet has all the potential to be a good tool in better understanding the complex world we’re living in.
