Information Sharing for Smart Places: What Kinds of Information Sharing for What Kinds of Places

Date: Thursday 2 July
Time: 10-4pm
Venue: UEA

What kinds of information sharing for what kinds of places is the third seminar in this ESRC series held at UEA: Information Sharing in Policy and Practice.

Speakers include: Richard Muir, IPPR; Professor Simon Marvin, Durham University; Dr Andrés Luque-Ayala, Durham University; Dr Anita Greenhill, Manchester Business School, University of Manchester; and Dr Martin Sykora, Centre for Information Management, Loughborough University.

As the idea of smart places has developed, so too have the kinds of information that need to be shared. In addition to the, mainly environmental, transport and security related, data from sensors and cameras, shared data from social media have been used to give indications of the health or even mood of cities while a range of experiments with citizen-reporting of phenomena from potholes to noisy neighbours has meant that the volume and types of data collected have burgeoned.

The focus of this seminar is on challenges of sharing this ever expanding volume and variety of information at the scale of cities and regions.

This event is free to attend but booking required.
