'City API' : How do you model a city?

Apr 8, 2014 · Seoul, United Kingdom

What does 'city data' tell us about the people, systems and environment around us? What data sources can be used to model a city?

Guest speaker David King, Software Developer at Oxford University, will talk through a project he is leading to build an API platform for use in application development - both within the University and beyond. What are the benefits of this approach to application development and how can it be used to improve the city?

From a mobile app that provides live transport updates on bus routes and car park spaces, to a searchable book index of university libraries, the 'Oxford API' is a pioneering open-data project. 

Following David's talk, we will be discussing a project to build a city-wide data platform here in Brighton.

Please RSVP to book your place at the event which is being jointly organised with BrightonPy
