    Data Science Initiative (DSI) RED Talk: Urban Data, Dr. Steven Koonin


    Time: 5:00pm - 7:30pm
    Location: Hatteras/Ocracoke Ballroom, Talley Student Union, 2610 Cates Ave, Raleigh, NC 27606

    Description:

Further, one RED Talk per semester will also include additional activities to promote existing research on campus and cultivate new interdisciplinary approaches.

    Abstract: For the first time in history, more than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas; in just a few more decades, the world’s population will exceed 9 billion, 70 percent of whom will live in cities. Enabling those cities to deliver services effectively, efficiently, and sustainably while keeping their citizens safe, healthy, prosperous, and well-informed will be among the most important undertakings in this century. I will review how work on data acquisition, integration and analysis at NYU’s Center for Urban Science and Progress is leading to a better understanding (and hence improvement) of urban systems. Novel analyses of persistent synoptic imagery will be an important part of the story.
