BIG DATA: Cities and sudden change
6pm Wednesday 20 February 2013
Lecture Theatre, Te Whare Apārangi, Royal Society of New Zealand
11 Turnbull Street, Thorndon, Wellington
Change can occur gradually or it can happen rapidly, disrupting the current state of place. What are the impacts of sudden change, particularly in the urban environment? How can we plan resilient cities that can cope with sudden change?
Kim Hill discusses these questions and many more with Dr Mark Quigley, Sir Bob Harvey and Professor Janis Birkeland.

BIG DATA DISCUSSION PANEL SERIES
This panel discussion series is a collaboration between the National Library and the Royal Society of New Zealand and is chaired by Kim Hill. The discussions will be recorded by National Radio New Zealand and broadcast the following fortnight.
Big Data is an exhibition running at the newly re-opened National Library until end of April. It examines the nature and implication of big data, especially in relation to the concept of place and how it might serve as a tool in facing the challenges of the current era. The discussion panel series is supporting this exhibition.
