In Smart Cities an abundance of data is generated in the urban sphere, about the physical environment, the natural environment, and social interactions in the public and private spheres of citizens. These datastreams create business opportunities and improvement of city governance and of citizens’ initiatives. City planners and governors are challenged to anticipate on opportunities and risks, for instance regarding public safety. Applied datascience supports cities and citizens in their anticipatory planning and monitoring actions, such as real time analysis of ethical, legal and social aspects to minimize risks and grasp opportunities.
The facilitators of this workshop address these opportunities and risks, and ways to cope with them from an academic, applied scientific and entrepreneurial point of view. In interaction with the audience in a flywheel discussion on how Data Science can and should play a role in the public safety sphere.
