Roundtable Discussion: Smart Cities and Open Data (2017 MetroLab Network Annual Summit)

September 14 @ 2:15 pm - 5:15 pm

NOTE: Due to the uncertainty around Hurricane Irma and potential impacts to the Atlanta region, MetroLab Network has postponed the Annual Summit. A new date will be announced shortly.

The Smart Cities and Open Data movements promise to use data to spark civic innovation and engagement, promote inclusivity, and transform modern communities. At the same time, advances in sensor technology, re-identification science, and Big Data analytics have challenged cities and their partners to construct effective safeguards for the collection, use, sharing, and disposal of personal information. As cities harness more data than ever, how can we assess the risks and opportunities of new technologies and data flows while preserving public trust and individual privacy? In this roundtable style discussion, come hear from City CIOs, academic leaders, and industry experts developing emerging frameworks for addressing privacy challenges in open data and examine the opportunities and challenges of new urban instrumentation.
