MBA students at Wittenborg Amsterdam were recently treated to a seminar by Prof. Caroline Nevejan, chief science officer of the City of Amsterdam, who came to talk about City Rhythm - a project initiated by her where city dwellers' daily rituals are observed and the data then used to enhance social security. "Rhythms in a city are very important – people often let their dogs out at the same time, bring their children to school at the same time, sit in the same bus every day or do their shopping at the same intervals.

Which is why I presented my ideas to local governments and they agreed that this rhythm can be used to enhance security," Nevejan told VNG Magazine.
