10:40 AM EXECUTIVE THINK TANK: TAKING BIG DATA TO THE NEXT LEVEL- How can cities better utilise big data to improve smart services and understand the needs of citizens and visitors?

The global big data market is expected to reach USD 123.2 billion by 2025* (Source, Grand View Research, Inc.) By 2020, we will create approximately 44 trillion gigabytes of data each year. From placing millions of sensor across cities to implementing open data initiatives, cities are increasing efforts to transform urban data into smart cities information. The key challenge cities are faced with when it comes to big data is how to make sense of it.

  • The edge VS the cloud
  • Defining edge computing opportunity
  • Innovative tools that cities can use to make sense of big data toimpact change?
  • How cities can use AI to make data driven decisions for their residents?
  • How can we empower citizens to leverage open data to resolve key city urban challenges

9:40 AM EXECUTIVE THINK THANK: HOW TO PROTECT YOUR CITY FROM ALGHORITH BIAS, DATA ACCESS, KILLER ROBOTICS AND GENOME EDITING?

First generation of virtual assistants exposed algorithm fallacies- from Facebook’s algorithm election controversy to voice command software struggling to understand female voices etc. The developments in autonomous drone manufacturing pose major threat for city security and freedom. How can cities work together to create a common regulatory environment where technology can thrive while providing safety and security for citizens?
