Data-Smart cities: Moving from analog to analytics-driven decision-making
Room 0.94-0.95, 06/12/2018 (11:30-12:15)
Governments operate in a complex world, reflected in the volume and ubiquity of data produced by citizens and through the growth of connected devices. Alongside, open data initiatives have resulted in a data lake of public governmental datasets, available for further processing. To better understand & respond to citizens’ needs, allocate public resources more efficiently and address contemporary challenges governments must exploit analytics. To this end, CUTLER's goal is to harvest the rich basis of data offered by the existing infrastructures for sensing the environment, the society & the economic activity, to build the data mining & visualisation tools for extracting actionable knowledge, and to use these tools for supporting a platform on policy design, implementation & evaluation that will be filtered through the lens of urban resilience.The session will explore & showcase CUTLER & other initiatives and ideas that effectively integrate & combine the layers of citizen-generated & governmental data to empower cities to advance from analog to analytics-driven decision-making. We aim to create an engaging experience for participants while encouraging real world collaboration & conversation. We will bring together like-minded industry professionals, researchers, government officials & active citizens to interact & formulate synergies that will leverage data to foster resilience, increase government responsiveness to people’s needs & empower better-informed policy decisions.
