Smart Cities

1:30pm - 5:00pm, Tuesday, December 5th, 2017
Strata Business Summit
Location: 323

The modern city is awash in data. Cheap sensors on cars, roads, and people give us a real-time understanding of traffic. We can track pollution, temperature, and climate with unerring precision. Satellite photographs reveal shade cover, property values, and building development.

But simply collecting this data misses the real promise of tomorrow's urban environments: Adaptation. Cities are living things, and when we act on that data, it changes the city. Use sensors to offer drivers alternate routes, and new congestion builds up. Estimate property values, and real estate patterns change. Indeed, the smart city isn't just the one that harvests insight from sensors, but the one that creates adaptive algorithms to adjust itself to the needs of the citizens.

In some parts of the world, these lofty aspirations are becoming reality. Strata's Smart Cities lineup goes deep into the Internet of Things, public safety, telecommunications, public transit, three-dimensional data exploration, and more, offering a glimpse at real-world deployments of data science that are transforming the cities in which we live.

Mark Donsky (Cloudera), Syed Rafice (Cloudera)
Smart cities and the electricity smart grid have become leading examples of the IoT, in which distributed sensors describe mission-critical behavior by generating billions of metrics daily. Mark Donsky and Syed Rafice show how smart utilities and cities rely on Hadoop to capture, analyze, and harness this data to increase safety, availability, and efficiency across the entire electricity grid.

Isaac Reyes (DataSeer)
Like snowflakes, no two taxi rides are the same. Rides vary by origin, destination, and duration, among hundreds of other dimensions. Isaac Reyes explains why Grab—the ride-hailing app beating Uber in SE Asia—turned to DataSeer to help create rich data visualizations of their customer data when the company wanted to better understand the behavior of its customers.
