In collaboration with the Illinois Science and Technology Challenge, the Illinois Open Technology Challenge has been launched to bring government, developers, and communities together.

Chicago plans to invest in a new fiber optic ring to achieve gigabit speed over an open network.

By combining this new network with a competitive price point, it hopes to create an incentive for digital technology companies to locate in, or re-locate to, Chicago. 

Chicago is working on the concept of sharing spectrum allocated for public safety, so that, when available, it can be used for small cells, cell phones, and so on.

But there are more pilots in Smart Chicago

With a view to improving the existing Chicago health system, the city is investing in Chicago Health Atlas; a website used to display aggregate, map-based health information.

It is also investing in a program and platform for real-time, open data infrastructure investment.

In collaboration with the Illinois Science and Technology Challenge, the Illinois Open Technology Challenge has been launched to bring government, developers, and communities together.

The city also offers hosted web space to support people or organizations that want to create services that make Chicago better.
