Importance of Mega Cities (02:37)
Computer scientist Ina Schieferdecker from the Frauhofer Institute (FOCUS), Berlin, gives a Falling Walls lecture on the advantages of open data for informed cities, which are the future.
Open Data (02:05)
Schieferdecker stresses the importance of returning to primary data for information and the availability of uninterpreted data through the Sunlight Foundation.
Smart Cities Concepts (03:41)
Schieferdecker explains that solutions must be smart uses of the intelligence. Information and communication technologies are fundamental for modern cities.
Challenges for the Future Internet (02:12)
The future internet depends on connecting things to generate data and building up services. As information networks become the nerve system of a city, technical changes must occur.
Shifts in Privacy Concepts (01:11)
Opening data requires paradigm shifts in concepts of public versus confidential data, publishable or restricted, and free versus limited use as consumers become producers.
The City Data Cloud (01:20)
Cloud technology provides a data platform for the city. Schieferdecker proposes a City Data Cloud to store and provide open, commercial and private data to registered users as metadata.
Using the Data in Berlin (01:38)
Open data use is important to adjust to changing demands in the city. Berlin has implemented a system using real time data to train scheduling and green zone control.
