“Data and AI as game changers for the cities” is the subtitle of this year’s Smart City Conference in Tartu which is happening today. The conference is providing many interesting sessions as well as lots of opportunities for networking.

Tartu has invited the participants to the Estonian National Museum offering a broad variety of interesting speakers and presentations dealing with smart cities, data and artificial intelligence.

The Conference is divided in 4 sessions on data and artificial intelligence I and II, Mobility and Energy.

And also Alanus von Radecki, Head of the Urban Governance Innovation department of the German Fraunhofer society is speaking about how to harness the value of urban data. (Fraunhofer Institute is project partner of our sister project Triangulum – this is a good example for the collaboration between the SCC1 projects!)

AI and the influence on traffic flow in the cities, mobile big data, last mile sustainability (...) are just a few keywords of the Data and AI sessions, whereas the Mobility part is dealing with connected infrastructure, predictive analytic platforms, cycling infrastructure and autonomous robots.
