Les villes intelligentes se fient à des capteurs omniprésents pour la collecte de quantités massives de données, la plupart au sujet de l'activité humaine. Ceci soulève des problèmes importants de gouvernance. Les défis de gouvernance des données numérique que posent les villes intelligentes sont illustrés par les controverses qui entourent le développement d'une ville intelligente dans le quartier Quayside à Toronto par Sidewalk Labs. Les enjeux de gouvernance des données progressent  également dans le cadre du « Defi des villes intelligentes » lancé par le gouvernement fédéral.
