How will cities and communities be successful in the future? Why will people want to live in them and what challenges will they face? Technologies such as big data, 3D printing, the internet of things and social media will be crucial enablers of resilient, vibrant and equitable cities and communities in the future; and technologies invented in coming years will quickly create possibilities that are hard for us to imagine today. But applying them successfully to create better places to live and do business is a challenge for personal and community leadership and business innovation, not just engineering.

  • LIKE: human-scale... where is HUMAN-data? (Quality-of-Life). Ex: FOOD: bushels-of-corn...vs balanced-diet for WELLness. ex2: Building-eff% vs Activities-induces (walkable)?

    In CRIT’s analysis of Mumbai, data told them that the structure of the city’s economy was changing;

    What does data tell us about the rest of the world?

    What do you get when you mix a tourist and a satnav? This, as it happens. Thinking it was the entrance to and underground car park (with stairs?!) this hapless motorist launched themselves into the French subway. I suppose that’s one interpretation of going off the beaten track in Paris.

  • The MASH includes the Council’s Family Services and Social Work divisions; Camden Police and Camden Health Services, with close links to probation, housing, education and youth offering services.
    Correctly identifies family relationships and household membership and helps to identify instances of fraud (e.g. illegal sub-letting) and use of aliases.
    Used to support work in adults’ and childrens’ services; strengthening families; strategic planning; and flood response.

    Added in something about Camden’s key amnesty for council tenants. We are all part of this as project sponsor is responsible for Housing in Camden. The plan is that they had a key amnesty with message if u have sub-let hand the keys back and walk away with no hassle from us. Now amnesty ended they’re using the hub to go after offenders through the courts and large fines. Sub-letting now a criminal offence and fines of up to £5k.

    6. 6. “While the population in Mumbai grew by 25% between 1991 and 2010, the number of people traveling by trains during the same years increased by 66% and the number of vehicles grew by 181%. At the same time, the number of enterprises in the city increased by 56%. All of this indicates a restructuring of the economy, where the nature of work and movement has changed.” “Being Nicely Messy”, Collaborative Research Initiative Trust, Audi Urban Future Awards, 2012

High resolution weather and flooding models are used to generate accurate flood maps with details for impacted areas Advanced analytics and optimization engines generate recommended actions for flood avoidance Stormwater Management Command Center Valves, pumps or inflatable dams are controlled dynamically to balance inline sewer storage and avoid potential overflows.
