  7. 7.  dataDublin  Network    What  is  it?     • dataDublin  is  an  exci<ng  new  concept  centred  on  the  idea  of  building  a  real-­‐0me,   dynamic,  digital  representa0on  of    Dublin  City.     • the  objec<ve  is  to    provide  a  digital  plaPorm  where  all  databases  &  data  streams  rela<ng   to  city  infrastructure,  environment  &  human  interac0ons  occurring  across  the  city  such  as   travel,  communica<on,  energy  &  water  consump<on  can  be  captured  in  real-­‐<me  and   made  accessible  to  a  wider  audience  to  help  everyday  decision-­‐making.     • an  online  portal  will  provide  access  to  both  data  producers  and  end-­‐user  of  informa<on   •   experimental  innova0on  plaPorm  to  facilitate    commercial  opportuni0es  &  crea0on  of   new  enterprise  by  private  industry  &  entrepreneurs  Why  do  it?     Dublin  is  a  typical  modern  day  city,  sharing  the  same  challenges  and  pressures  as  other   ci<es  across  the  globe  to  ensure  cleaner  environments,  provide  beNer  services  and   promote  the  city  and  region  as  a  vibrant  &  affordable  place  to  work  and  live.
