Overview

Join us on October 23, 2018 for a half-day event on Data in Smarter Cities: Who Owns It? Who Runs It? Who Benefits?

Effective capture and imaginative use of data is wholly necessary for cities to become smarter. But underneath that statement of the obvious lurks a number of knotty challenges, as well as opportunities for cities to take on wholly different approaches and even to find new sources of revenue.

Our half-day program is centered on these issues and will look to unlock a variety of viewpoints on areas such as privacy, security, ownership, and business models (for both cities and the suppliers of solutions), as we look to provide a lay of the land on the challenges and the opportunities that exist at the intersection of data and cities.

Our attendance will be capped at 100 seats, so please register as soon as possible in order to participate.
