Big Data for Big Cities

SESSION: Invited Talks 9

EVENT TYPE: Invited Speakers

TIME: 10:30AM - 11:15AM

SESSION CHAIR: William Kramer

Presenter(s):Steven Koonin

ROOM:Mile High

ABSTRACT:
For the first time in history, more than half of the worlds population lives in urban areas; by mid-century, 70 percent of the worlds more than 9 billion people will live in cities. Enabling those cities to deliver services effectively, efficiently, and sustainably while keeping citizens safe, healthy, prosperous, and well-informed is one of the most important undertakings in this century. Success will require that we understand the physical, environmental, and human dimensions of cities in a synthetic and synoptic manner. New technologies enable the acquisition, integration, and analysis of urban big data to inform that understanding. I will discuss some of the rationale, applications, and challenges in the nascent field of urban informatics, as well as the ways in which advances in extreme computing and analytics technologies can accelerate progress.
