Video: SCEWC15- Matthew Cockburn, How accessible is data in meeting the Smart City remit?

Posted on 01 December 2015
A staggering 96% of those surveyed by application platform, KnowledgeKube, identified that more than a quarter of their processes were inefficient.

Matthew Cockburn, from Bristol Council, looks at the accessibility of data from a council's view. Like most councils, Bristol has a lot of data, but it tends to be locked up within the council on antiquated systems that were never supposed to be integrated with ‘the outside world’.  The best example of this is public transport data- when it was designed twenty years ago, it was only supposed to talk to the bus stop but nowadays people we want to access this data on their mobile phones. Utilising systems like GPS, third-party aggregators and traffic control rooms, councils are able to make this more data accessible.
