This workshop uses a systematic approach to understanding the intangible data infrastructure (data, models, analytics and data flows) required to support future transport and mobility goals in a smart city. In a highly interactive environment, the facilitator explains how to ‘work downward’ from agreed goals to the data elements required to support those goals. This new approach is a first step toward planning a data strategy in advance of the demand in exactly the same way that planners should design and plan physical infrastructure in advance of the need.
The approach helps us understand the foundational role of key data intangible infrastructure in meeting key goals, and tackling related issues such as privacy, governance, business agreement terms and business models.
This workshop is suitable for practitioners tasked with providing improved customer services, new mobility related solutions or meeting transport, freight and mobility related city goals.
