UIC 2023 Urban Forum

Can Data Deliver? Harnessing Data-Driven Solutions for Urban Challenges

April 19, 2023

9:00 AM - 1:00 PM


UIC Student Center East


750 S. Halsted St., Chicago, IL 60607


No Cost

A national event designed to advance the dialogue about the future of urban communities.

The availability of vast amounts of data from and about cities offers great potential to address urban challenges. However, large and serious questions challenge this potential. Do governments and civic institutions have the capacity to effectively gather, analyze, and interpret data to inform better urban planning and decision-making? What does it mean to utilize data in a fair and equitable way? Should data be used to inform AI and other cutting-edge technologies?

The 2023 UIC Urban Forum will address these questions and many more through its panel discussions and speakers with a range of perspectives on this issue.  The Forum will be held in person at the UIC Student Center East, 750 S. Halsted St.

The theme for this year:  "Can Data Deliver? Harnessing Data-Driven Solutions for Urban Challenges."

Registration is open.
