Big Data and Smart Cities:
ITS as enabler for Smart Mobility

Data has become available in abundance - after years of bemoaning the lack of more and better transport data for planning and improving operations. The sheer pervasiveness of the data generated in our digital world has now created new solutions but also challenges on how to store, secure, mine and use the ubiquitous data we generate by the second!

It introduces multiple issues for which we have to develop answers - sooner rather than later.

Issues range from policy and institutional to the operational level: What are the policy vacuums, how will we deal with concerns about protecting privacy and cyber security, where and how will data be warehoused, how will institutions collaborate and how do we share access to data?

These are some of the questions that we need to explore, and urgently.

ITS South Africa is hosting a workshop and Big Data for Smart Cities/Smart Mobility on 29 September 2016 in Cape Town.

We cordially invite members and interested parties to participate. The deadline to register is Wednesday 21 September 2016.
