Speaker Series: Smart Cities and Data

November 23, 2017 @ 19:00 - 21:30

Big Data is inherent to Cities. However, the use of Big Data, Data Analytics and Data Driven apps is still scarce. In this session we will examine Cities & Data from both the angle of the Public Policy and the one of the implementation together with some salient cases of how to build a nascent Data Infrastructure for Catalonia.
