CSH Vienna & AIT at the Berlin Science Week:
This workshop – organized in the framework of the Berlin Science Week by AIT Austrian Institute of Technology and CSH Vienna in the afternoon of Nov 7 – will introduce concepts of complexity & Big Data science with a special focus on challenges arising in the area of urbanization.
There is evidence that the size of cities significantly affects factors such as health, communication, or opinion formation of people. Hence, how should cities be planned, built, and governed in an intelligent way? How can the immense data streams cities are producing be transformed into useful knowledge that can be used to develop a city in a sustainable, resilient, and resource-friendly way?
