Data-Enabled Chattanooga: Urban Science and Technology in Chattanooga

Mina Sartipi, UC Foundation Professor of Computer Science and Engineering UT Chattanooga

Data-Enabled Chattanooga: Urban Science and Technology in Chattanooga Chattanooga is a fast-growing, mid-sized city that has carefully and smartly used its unique location and resources to build the first 10Gbps fiber optic internet service through EPB of Chattanooga. This has led Chattanooga to be called the GigCity because it is the first city in the Western Hemisphere to acquire such a fast city-wide internet service. Chattanooga is uniquely positioned to be the next-generation testbed for smart cities. As a regional university, UTC wants to help Chattanooga achieves its full potential as smart city. The fields of smart cities and data-enabled urban systems are growing at a rapid pace. As a result, UTC has started a new program in Urban Science and Technology (S&T), and the department of Computer Science and Engineering has developed new undergraduate and graduate concentrations in Data Science. In this talk, Dr. Mina Sartipi will briefly review some of the data-enabled Urban S&T projects UTC is working on in collaboration with other universities, research labs, and Chattanooga departments and municipalities. Projects range from Transportation, to Energy, to Health, and Urban Planning. Panel Q&A – Dr. Mina Sartipi, 1 undergrad student, 1 masters student, 1 Ph.D. student
