SICSA is pleased to be sponsoring City Analytics which will be held at the Royal Society of Edinburgh on Wednesday 30 May 2018.
In today’s digital, multi-sensored world, cities have become ‘living laboratories’, providing a range of data streams around urban life. What new opportunities arise from these rich data sources; what novel mathematical models and computational tools are required;and what are the relevant data-privacy issues?
A range of speakers from academia and beyond will address these challenges. In addition to computer science and the mathematical sciences, the event will involve and reach out to researchers and practitioners in energy, health, transport, security, commerce and local government. The conference aims to explore opportunities and challenges around the use of rich and varied data streams, to improve quality of human life in urban areas across the world.
An evening lecture by Professor Peter Grindrod will follow the conference.
More information on this event, including registration details will be posted soon.
