Can big data save our cities? Attend the Smart Travel seminar

Join the Sustainable Housing & Urban Studies Unit (SHUSU) for their upcoming Sustainable Transport Futures seminar. SHUSU seek to understand complex social issues and work towards social justice and environmental sustainability within the urban environment.

Can big data be used to revolutionise the way our cities function? Smart cities aim to bring cutting edge technology together with large scale data sets to design efficient and tailored transport systems. The more information we have about people's commuting habits, when combined with innovative technologies, will help create a much higher quality service. Join us for a thought-provoking discussion on the future of smart cities, big data, and the role of technology in shaping sustainable transport and encouraging active travel. 

We are hoping to inspire debate around the role of data in urban planning and the potential for it to shape Greater Manchester’s future.
