We are pleased to announce our 2nd event in the series "Real Life Examples of Cognitive Computing". We are fortunate to have two visionaries who use big data and machine learning to improve the designs for Cities of the Future.

Presenter 1: Kelly Jin - Head of Data Analytics for the City of Boston

Kelly will describe how the City of Boston uses big data to improve quality of life of citizens and enhance its service delivery. By integrating multiple data sources with intelligence models, Boston’s Citywide Analytics Team helps improve the quality of services, visualizes data that provides life-saving information, all the while keeping Mayor Walsh and City leadership apprised of the real-time status of critical metrics.

Presenter 2: Paolo Santi – Lead Researcher at MIT's Senseable City Lab

Paolo is an internationally acclaimed expert in mobility data. Hailing from the University of Pisa in Italy, Paolo is currently leading the Ambient Mobility studies at MIT’s Senseable City Lab where he uses advanced machine learning techniques for urban data analysis. Paolo will describe how data from millions of cell-phones and taxi-trips is used to model and predict pedestrian and vehicle traffic flow for planning and route management by public and commercial transportation services.
