10:15 – 12:00 Part I: City Data and Privacy (organised by FVH)

How should we make mydata, data privacy and data-enabled services happen in smart cities? What kind of technologies need to be developed, what kind of guidelines created? What does all this require from the citizens of the mydata era? How can we mitigate the possible risks related to this development? What kind of new means for collaboration between cities this calls for?

Panelists will share their experiences from working on these issues with cities and introduce their best practices and tools to the audience.

The panel is organised by Forum Virium Helsinki’s Select for Cities project that advances with open & GDPR ready Smart City IoE platform R&D through PCP.

The second part of the workshop gives an overview of how the so-called OASC Minimal Interoperability Mechanisms – a baseline set of standards and principles for smart cities – can contribute to innovation and procurement based on standards. As an example for standards-based innovations, the Cedus City Enabler will demonstrate how an open source data mining technology can help cities to detect and visualise data and mydata from public and private sources within the city.
