We invite you to join a cross-disciplinary research team, featuring Mohamed OufMazdak Nik-BakhtJing Hu, and Stefanie Duguay as they enter in conversation with industry guests and workshop participants on using “big data” for urban built environment research. This workshop aims to identify the different approaches used to maintain user privacy and ensure stakeholder trust. It is part of a project funded by Concordia’s Next-Gen Cities Cluster which aims to develop best practices, recommendations and a workflow to assess privacy risks for different use cases that rely on mining big data.
