WHAT IS DATA INNOVATION DAY?

Smarter Policies for a Smarter World

Data Innovation Day is organized to raise awareness about the benefits and opportunities of the data revolution. This year’s theme will focus on the opportunities to expand and improve development of smart cities across Europe and the lessons that policymakers can learn from the world’s smartest cities. The event will bring together top-level policymakers, industry experts, and researchers to explore how to better deploy the Internet of Things and data-driven public services in cities.

The Center for Data Innovation, the leading global think tank studying the intersection of data, technology, and public policy, has organized Data Innovation Day every year since 2013. In 2017, it is hosting Data Innovation Day in Brussels for the first time.

About the Conference

Data Innovation Day is a high-level forum for policymakers, thought leaders, and other experts to raise awareness about the benefits and opportunities that will arise from the data revolution and discuss the positive steps that government can take to support the development, adoption, and use of emerging data-driven technologies.

Since 2013, the conference has been organized annually by the Center for Data Innovation, the leading global think tank studying the intersection of data, technology, and public policy.  This is the first year the conference will be held in Brussels.

About the Theme

The theme this year is “Building Smart Cities for Tomorrow’s Data Economy.”

Europe consistently ranks high as having some of the best cities in the world. However, its successes today are the results of past investments and strategic planning. The advent of smart cities—cities that use data to improve the way they work—has created a new inflection point in the development trajectory of cities. The choices European cities make today will have long-term consequences for their future competitiveness, sustainability, and quality of life.

Smart cities have many important objectives: make public transport more practical, ease road traffic, cut carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency, enhance social care for people who are older or disabled, provide government services more efficiently, boost the local economy, cut red tape, and even fight crime. While a number of European cities have begun exploring smart city projects, more should be done to ensure that Europe becomes a global leader in smart cities and that associated industries and firms that support them.

Join the Center for Data Innovation for a conversation with leading experts from industry and government about the future of smart cities and the steps policymakers should take to lead the way in the development of smart cities.

Cybathlon 2016

Cybathlon 2016

Tags : 

Cybathlon, the first Olympic Games for bionic athletes was hosted on 8 October 2016, in Kloten, Switzerland. This world premiere saw 74 international disabled athletes – kitted out with bionic prostheses and brain-computer interfaces – compete with each other at the specially created events. These modern-day cyborgs from 25 different countries competed in 59 different teams from all over the world.

The initiative was launched by Robert Riener,  a professor of sensory-motor systems at ETHZ. “One of the goals of the cybathlon is to encourage researchers and developers to work on robotic technologies that can substantially improve daily life for people with disabilities.

ETH Zurich will host the next Cybathlon in May 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland!

The unique competition for people with disabilities will continue!

The six disciplines from 2016; Brain-Computer Interface Race, FES Bike Race, Powered Arm Prosthesis Race, Powered Leg Prosthesis Race, Powered Exoskeleton Race, Powered Wheelchair Race, will remain in the Cybathlon 2020 programme. The tasks will continue to be relevant to everyday life, but will reflect advances in research. The main goal of the Cybathlon 2020 is to push the development of assistive devices for people with disabilities.

Due to the very successful Cybathlon event in 2016 and the feedback received, the Organising Committee plans an even bigger event, breaking it up into two days. There will also be an attractive secondary programme, wherein the visitors can try out the disciplines for themselves (hands-on demos) and understand the issues surrounding disability in a practical way.
