2023 UIC Urban Forum: Can Data Deliver? Harnessing Data-Driven Solutions for Urban Challenges
April 19, 2023
The availability of vast amounts of data from and about cities offers great potential to address urban challenges. However, large and serious questions challenge this potential. Do governments and civic institutions have the capacity to effectively gather, analyze, and interpret data to inform better urban planning and decision-making? What does it mean to utilize data in a fair and equitable way? Should data be used to inform AI and other cutting edge technologies? Urban Forum 2023 will address these questions and many more through its panel discussions and speakers with a range of perspectives on this issue.
