Unleashing the Power of Data for Better Cities
June 30 - July 13, 2019
Within cities, predictive analytics play a role in many different domains such as citizen participation, city resilience, prevention of pollution, managing risks, public transportation and private mobility. Predictive analytics provides a way to shape data into meaningful decisions. It uses data analytics to make predictions and generate strategic, operational assets.
Public authorities and private companies can benefit from these insights and provide better services to citizens. The Summer School programme will focus on the opportunities that data analytics can create for cities, citizens, and entrepreneurs in a wide range of user applications, for example: telecommunication infrastructure, urban logistics, tourism, security or social Wi-Fi.
What happened at this location in the previous year
- 38 participants from 16 countries worked on cases dealing with the problem of urban parking, freight transport in urban logistics, problems with autonomous vehicles, centralized supervision and decision-making in cities as well as finding ways to “braincrowd” citizen views and opinions.
- Speakers from academia and industry including companies like Intempora, Etalab, Caps-Enterprise and LabFab provided participants a deep understanding of the driving forces of the digital transformation of cities.
- Participants also visited DIR OUEST, the command center of Brittany’s road networks to gain first-hand knowledge of the city resources and operations.
