The use of big data is a lynch pin in the deployment of smart cities of the future. The potential of big data for smart cities goes far beyond the efficiencies that can be created in areas such as energy consumption, health care, education, and law enforcement. The true potential of big data is directly engaging society in governance through increased transparency and delivery of services using access to data as a foundation. This workshop will provide mini-case studies in a range of settings from developed countries such as the USA and developing countries such as Pakistan. An emphasis of the discussion will be on how city governments can use data to improve quality of life for their citizens.
Participants will learn to:
create breakthrough efficiencies in running a city through use of big data technologies
engage citizens into government through use of open data initiatives
the steps for transforming from traditional city management to smart city management.

Multiple seminars can be scheduled for one day. Stephen is experienced in both computer science via his MIT PhD work, and is also well versed in business management through his MBA work in a joint program between the Harvard Business School and the MIT Sloan School of Management.
