Using transport hub data to map the future of innovation
As people move around in the 21st century, they leave a digital data trail - and when we step back and look at this aggregated all together, it can tell us about who we are, how we work, where we play and what matters to us.
How useful is this to business? How vital are these questions to artists?
The DRIVA arts DRIVA project is unlocking sets of unique, real-time big data and helping tech innovators to build from it and arts practitioners to create experiences from it.
In this free event, Eugenie Teasley, Director of Cities at Uber, reflects on how a small disruptive tech company is now positioned to be one of the biggest voices in the future of sustainable transport - a journey that has not been easy. WIth every Uber trip, hundreds of new pieces of digital data are created - which might help us find answers about possible future disruptive technologies as well as the way people navigate the physical environment around them.
Also hear from University of Brighton experts and other project partners about how DRIVA arts DRIVA can help you open up unprecedented opportunities.
