Seminar in partnership with INES 2.0: Understanding and Analyzing Open Urban Data.

When: Friday, November 24th, 2017, 4:00 PM.

Where: Anfiteatro do Centro de Informática da UFPE.

Abstract: A growing number of cities are now making urban data freely available to the public. These initiatives, however, are fairly recent and the landscape of open urban data is still not well known. In the first part of the talk, Luciano Barbosa (CIn/UFPE) will present a study that takes a first step toward understanding the current landscape of open urban data to better assess the challenges and opportunities for finding,

Painel: Ética em IA e Cidades Inteligentes

As novas tecnologias apresentam um enorme potencial para contribuir positivamente com as nossas cidades e seus cidadãos. No entanto, elas podem também trazer sérios problemas à privacidade e segurança desses mesmos cidadãos e, caso não aplicadas corretamente, podem exacerbar ao invés de diminuir as desigualdades sociais e os preconceitos já existentes na sociedade. O INCT da Internet do Futuro para Cidades Inteligentes traz 5 especialistas para discutir aspectos éticos das Cidades Inteligentes e da IA no IME-USP. Contamos com a sua presença ou e-presença!
