Keynote: “Data, Tech and the City? Debunking a Myth and a Way Forward!”
What’s the contribution of data and algorithms to the reality of transport planning and operations today? What futures do we imagine and work for? And what happens if your own research nearly leads to billions of bad investments in the real world?
A tour de force about the contributions, near misses and a possible future of data science in the field of urban mobility.
