Join us on a virtual walk through LivingLab projects at the Marineterrein and discover the power of analytics for campus development. Tom van Arman and Tom Griffioen will touch upon open (research) questions of our future Digital Society and illustrate opportunities how connected data can deliver new insights, while respecting privacy.
VU Amsterdam is bursting with data that can make teaching, administrative and facilities processes more efficient and therefore, make work and study easier and more enjoyable. So why aren’t we using it on a massive scale yet?
