Today I write you as part of a mini-series on my stay at the Chicago Forum on Global Cities (CFGC). I have been kindly sponsored by ETH Zurich and the Chicago Forum to participate in the event. I am currently sitting in my train to Zurich airport and I am looking forward to 3 days of intensive discussions on the future of global cities. You will also find a post about this event on the ETH Ambassadors Blog and ETH Global Facebook and you may look out for some tweets.
I hope for many interesting meetings and conversations at the Forum, especially about my main topics of interest Big Data in Smart Cities – for which I have a short policy brief with me designed in the Argumentation and Science Communication Course of the ISTP – as well as ways to design better cities based on Big Data and knowledge of human (navigation) behaviour – the topic of my soon to start PhD.
