Journey of Jakarta Smart City from Data Analytics Perspective: Building Advanced Analytics & Data Science Capabilities

Abstract: 

In the last decade, globally, smart city initiatives have been growing significantly. In essence, smart city is the utilization of innovation and technology to solve complex and diverse urban challenges. The actual applications and implementations can be diverse across cities and countries. In this context, data analytic is one of the fundamental elements of a successful smart city. Integrating, analyzing and delivering concrete values from diverse urban data are the key objectives of data analytics in smart city context. The results will be seen from the improvement of public policies and public services.

In this session, we will learn from the journey and case study from Jakarta Smart City. Advanced analytics and data science techniques have been leveraged for video analytics (object detection), predictive modeling (COVID-19, transportation, flood, citizen aspiration) and clustering. Beyond the core technical modeling and execution, the speaker will elaborate about the digital talent management and cross-agencies collaboration as well. There will be well-rounded elaboration from technical, organizational, strategy and cultural perspective in driving analytics initiative in the Jakarta context.
