What It Means To Be A Smart City

Recently, Seattle Channel paid a visit to the eScience Institute, producing a video discussing the University of Washington’s partnership with the City of Seattle as part of the White House’s Smart Cities Initiative.

Featured in the video are interviews with eScience’s Founding Director and Associate Director, Ed Lazowska and Bill Howe, along with Program Manager Sarah Stone, and Senior Data Scientists Ariel Rokem and Valentina Staneva. Also featured is the Data Science for Social Good program from this past summer, and the impact its four projects have had on helping make Seattle a “smart city.”
