Event details

The world is increasingly urban, complex, data-rich, and machine-learned. Urban analytics uses data on our everyday experiences in cities to improve the efficiency of urban systems, raise the quality of life for inhabitants, and to increase our understanding of how people interact with the built environment. This research is critical as cities and their inhabitants face intensifying, system-wide environmental, social, and economic challenges. Research areas in Urban Analytics include transit, commuting, and spatial interaction; segregation and the study of urban society; architecture and design; environmental and sustainability science; Internet of Things (IoT), digital twins, and smart cities; social network analysis; crowd behaviour; and economic development, among others. Given the central position of the city in society, The Alan Turing Institute’s Urban Analytics Programme seeks to address these challenges through data-intensive science. This collaborative workshop will take place in Bristol, UK.

About the event

This workshop is a 2+1 day event that brings together experts from a range of backgrounds. The first two days, we will revise and finalise our shared vision for the Urban Analytics Programme. On the third optional day, we invite all attendees to sessions & our public consultation at the Festival of the Future City on Friday, engaging with the broader public.

We invite participants from a variety of institutional backgrounds and career stages, in particular early career & postgraduates, to attend.
