This BCS talk, given by Theo Tryfonas from the University of Bristol will describe the broad set of principles under which a number of organisations are working together in ‘smartening up’ the city of Bristol.
These principles have influenced the 'Bristol Approach’ to citizen sensing as well as the city’s digital strategy over the years. Theo will refer to examples of projects that have been enabled by these and have had impact on the city in turn, as well as to research underway and the potential for world-wide collaborations.
This event is open to all and everyone is welcome to attend.
