Nicola Brittain: Bradford City Council, the Internet-of-Things and better public service

Bradford is not normally a city much associated with ‘innovation’. To date, the region has been more synonymous with social deprivation than forward-thinking technology (in 2015 one in four children in the region were living below the poverty line). But as enterprise architect and information manager of IT Services at Bradford City Council Yunus Mayat explains, technology can help transform societies, and it is exactly this sort of community or region that stands to benefit most from developments of this sort.
