Chicago: City of Big Data

Location: Performance Hall at The David and Reva Logan Center at The University of Chicago, 915 E. 60th St., Chicago, IL

An explosion of data has transformed the way cities are constructed and function. Chicago is at the vanguard of applying these data to address transportation, health care, education, energy, public safety, and other urban challenges.

Join experts from the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory, including the former chief data and information officer for the City of Chicago and the former chief scientist at Obama for America’s 2012 Campaign, to learn how scientists are collaborating with educators, architects, and government officials to develop analytical tools and computer models that can improve quality of life for residents of Chicago and metropolises worldwide.

Sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research and for National Laboritories and the Architecture Foundation.
