From automated vehicles to ride hailing apps, transportation as we know it is changing - and fast. But new technologies alone won't help communities build the efficient, equitable, and sustainable transportation networks communities want. In fact, these innovative technologies could do just the opposite, especially if they are not deployed wisely. Cities must collect the right data and enact the right policies to ensure they do not exacerbate problems like inequity and traffic, and to hold themselves accountable to the promise of new mobility technologies.
In this webinar, you will find out why - and how - the smartest cities of tomorrow will be those that adopt data-driven transportation strategies today. Join for Laura Schewel's presentation to gain insights into:
• Why the status quo for transportation data collection is no longer good enough
• The types of Massive Mobile Data that are useful for transportation and urban planning
• Algorithmic processing techniques that are critical for making this data useful
• Case studies from California and Virginia that demonstrate why Massive Mobile Data drives more effective transportation planning
• A forward-looking blueprint for using Massive Mobile Data to maximize the potential benefits of new transportation technologies - and minimize negative impacts
Laura Schewel founded StreetLight Data, a mobility analytics provider, after spending more than a decade as an advanced transportation researcher and statistician at the Rocky Mountain Institute and FERC. She has particular expertise in transportation systems, sustainability and safety, and vehicle/system modeling and analysis.

Whenever there is data, there is the chance to visualize it and gain valuable insights that can drive change and improvements. Governments have realized the potential that data holds for transforming our towns, cities, living spaces and communities to better address the needs of our modern society.
Governments may want to change public transport services to suit commuters who move away from city centers due to increasing living costs, or develop programs that deliver more support services to areas showing high incidences of mental illnesses, or simply monitor bike traffic to assess the necessity of additional cycle lanes and bike share programs in our capitals. Data and data visualization can help us identify the needs of our communities and can support us in addressing them effectively.
In this webinar Andy and Eva will present examples of Government using data to improve services for communities and will share how you can get involved through analyzing open data and becoming part of the wider 'dataviz' community.
We will examine challenges regarding business model design in the emerging context of the Internet of Things (IoT).
An unrefined IoT business model implies a significant risk in terms of investment and implementation.
The key question is, "How can IoT application models be subjected to a reality check taking into account challenges pertaining technology, organization and target markets?"
Moving from A-B is slowly being revolutionised through data. Car-sharing and ride-hailing are just the beginning. Thousands of connected devices are currently monitoring data points, and although stand-alone analysis can be useful, true innovation occurs when these data sets are combined to transform into something new.
In the near future, IoT data explosion and the API revolution will collide to change city planning, urban movement and the role of the car in the 21st century.
First off, we set out to understand what big data means in the context of transportation, answering questions such as what is it, where is it coming from, and what can you do with it.
- Next, we'll zoom out and apply these learning to transport innovation in a wider context, considering how it will influence concepts such as urban movement, social mobility, and quality of life.
- Finally, we'll discuss the relationship between open data and innovation.
For decades “things” have been connected to the Internet. Embedded in carefully planned end-to-end solutions, the what and why of the data arising from these devices has often been hard-coded. In other words, in the M2M world, it is usually clear from the outset what is going to happen with the data. In a future IoT, this won’t necessarily be the case. In a world full of connected devices, the meaning and the potential of the device data is only going to become clear in the context where it is needed in.
But how can software tell that your connected thermometer is useful for a medical application, or that a car in the drive way is likely an indicator of your partner’s presence? This is where device catalogues, information models and ontologies come in handy.
While the talk is not specifically tailored towards a smart city focus, it should become clear how these technologies can be useful in such environment.
This webinar provides a detailed comparison between open source Apache Cassandra managed by Instaclustr and proprietary technologies such as DataStax Enterprise.

R&D is an expensive business – Last year alone, UK companies invested £16.5 billion into research and development, which accounted for 4% of the total global spend.
While 25% of R&D spend came from the higher education sector and 7% from Government and Research Councils, the majority - a massive 66% of this investment, was made by businesses. But there are easy ways that these companies could be accessing even more money to invest in R&D.
Of course R&D delivers benefits in the form of process efficiencies, new products, intellectual property which can be protected and monetized, and is a is source of long term competitive advantage. But the UK government also encourages R&D through significant tax benefits – so why are so many businesses still not claiming enough tax relief for R&D?
Brian Williamson, Managing Director at Jumpstart, the UK’s leading tax credit specialists, joins us for this webinar where he will discuss:
- Why the government cares about R&D investment
- The common “white coat” misconception companies have about R&D
- How to get your accountant or auditor to think like a scientist
- Why companies ranging from startups to multinational companies are leaving money on the table and the options available for claiming it back.
This webinar is essential for any R&D leaders wanting to know more about how to manage their R&D budgets more effectively.
The classic way of identifying, developing, testing and rolling out new technology relies on management to identify a bottleneck and set a deadline, product management to scope the issue and develop the requirements and then the development time “sprints” through an agile process to deliver the goods. Once the solution was rolled out, the employees suddenly had another process with which they had to comply.
Now, however, there is a better way. IT and development leaders can crowdsource roadblocks from their audience as well as their teams instead of guessing what to address, which will tell them exactly where technology can automate processes and solutions in order to make it easier for their employees. The result? Solutions employees actually need that are built the best for your organization.
Join Jeff Kunzelman, Chief Technology Officer at POPin, as he discusses how crowdsolving and automation can revolutionize your business. Specifically, expect to takeaway:
•Examination of past and current ways of handling development
•Identification of ways to avoid bottlenecks
•Examples of successful crowdsourcing
•Best practices for technology automation
•Solutions for employee-driven initiatives

He will also identify a number of data platform and analytics themes that are becoming more critical in the IoT era: security and data governance; infrastructure including edge analytics and server less computing; data processing; data integration and messaging.
Organizations across the business spectrum are awakening to the transformative power of data and analytics. To truly become a data-driven organization and increase analytics adoption, explore embedding analytics into apps and business processes your users already love. It is easier to bring analytics to the user than to change a user. In this session we will share “how to” embed Pyramid Analytics intelligence into your apps, lessons learned, and best practices to deliver insights when and where decisions are made.
