PANEL SERIES: ACCELERATING THE PACE OF INNOVATION IN CITIES
A conversation on collaborative strategies for modern data systems.

A strong vision for the future of Smart Cities starts with a commitment from leadership to take custodianship of their data as a force for improving the quality of life for citizens.  In a rapidly evolving technology landscape, this requires a nuanced understanding of best practices around security, privacy, and an ecosystem of cloud services and analytic platforms that build the infrastructure for data-driven innovation.  In this discussion, we’ll hear from government leaders about the challenges and opportunities of investing in partnerships and systems of technology that support long-term goals for modern cities.

It’s hard to move fast and take risks with technology when you’re operating within bureaucratic traditions.  This panel will talk with organizations that work closely with government to meet these challenges through frameworks, policies, and products that balance the need to be adaptive and nimble with the imperative to be reliable and consistent.

The implementation tactics for data platforms are complex and multifaceted.  When the barrier to entry for building software is exceptionally high, how can government set themselves up for success navigating a range of public/private partnership models?  We’ll hear from experts who understand the technology and represent platforms that support the fundamentals of interoperability between modern data systems and reproducible standards that are built to scale.

This discussion explores the successes and challenges of creating public/private partnerships by highlighting four projects initiated in February 2018 within the framework of the Greater Portland Mobility Tech Challenge. The Greater Portland Tech Challenge was created by local economic development and nonprofit orgs to bring together public and private-sector problem solvers to investigate the most confounding and interesting mobility challenges facing the Greater Portland region.

Featured Public/Private Partnership Projects:

  • Creating an autonomous trolley corridor by converting an under-utilized off street trolley corridor into a multi-use and autonomous corridor.
  • Making transit technology more inclusive for underserved residents.
  • Big Data – empowering municipalities to accesses and implement with street level data.
  • Creating an open data estate with public sector data.
  • Linking multi modal commutes.
