The “Data Driven: Coding and Writing Transportation’s Future” conference focused on the changing landscape of vehicle and transportation-related data, and the opportunities arising from it.
Hosted by the Stanford Journalism Program, the REVS Program at Stanford and the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford, the conference brought together professionals from a range of sectors who are working at the frontier of liberating and utilizing vehicular data.
Car manufacturers, tech companies, city government officials, academics, and journalists all contributed to discussions about data and the evolution of automobility. The conference featured three panels: data in the car, communication from or about the car, and car data as sensors of institutions. Invited panelists shared their experiences with data and cars and there were moderated discussions involving the audience.
We also unveiled a repository of valuable transportation datasets, related to the vehicles we drive and the infrastructure that supports us: www.datadrivenstanford.org
