City Innovation Lab : Manchester Computer Science 30 th June 2010
Overview What it is Current state of play Why it should be of interest to CS Discussion
ICT Driving Transformation Major challenges and opportunities –health and social care –low-carbon economy –leisure and wellbeing Mobile is game-changing –personal, context-aware, real-time More than technology –social science, psychology, business models … –influencing behaviour Live experiments –evidence, evidence, evidence
Aims of CIL : Manchester City-wide test-bed – living lab –economic & social value of innovation –expertise in large-scale trials as enabler for innovation –lower barriers to / cost of large scale trials Accelerate the pace of innovation –innovation networks –co-creation/development –evidence-based Sustainable within 5 years –~ £3M pa innovation turnover –long-term research
City Innovation Lab Partners Manchester: Knowledge Capital Manchester Informatics Manchester Digital Development Agency Greater Manchester Environment Commission
Building on Manchesters Assets History and culture of innovation Scale and diversity: social, ethnic, health, lifestyle World-class Informatics research Instrumented population Comparatively static population City-region pilot Investments in digital infrastructure
Components of Innovation Lab Infrastructure –technical platform –staff/expertise Business Community Public organisations User community Live projects
Infrastructure Technical platform –data gathering (from embedded devices, sensors etc) –information management, data mining, consumer behaviour modelling –feedback: incentives, social networking, persuasive communication, personalised marketing People –study design, trials management, analysis –knowledge transfer: private and public sector partnerships, public engagement –expertise: technology, social science, psychology, business, health, sustainability...
Business and Public Organisations Multiple sectors –Mobile telecom –ICT –Retail –Transport –Health –Creative SME multinational Public organisations –City-region –NHS
User Communities mHealth –Citizen-scientists –Expert patient –Assisted living Transport –Trip sharing –Community cycling schemes Sustainability –Energy –Recycling
State of Play Partnership with city-region maturing –mutual opening of doors TSB considering proposals –pump-prime CIL ~£5M –Trusted services – tripsharing IBM prepared to develop infrastructure @ £500K Opportunities around Future Internet –TSB involvement in consortium building Other current/future funding calls
Why Should this Interest CS? Opportunities for new/applied research –machine learning (analytics), text mining –information management –sensors, low-power –m-Health –visual computing –social networks Engagement and impact –industry –city –public
