AASCTF Guided Learning Program Webinar on Data Collection and Storage
Data is rapidly transforming our world. Cities, in particular, are giant data machines – creating, consuming, and capturing vast amounts of data through a range of systems embedded in the functioning of different services and institutions, from transport control centers to timekeeping systems. Where does the data go? How can data be collected? Why collect data?
These are the three main questions that was explored in the first webinar of the GLP. The session provided a deeper examination of how data flows and impacts our cities. The barriers that local governments face in collecting and storing data was also discussed, and the session showcased innovative examples of data collection and storage that are part of ongoing smart city programs.
