Presenter: Matt Worona
Presentation Title: Managing Privacy Considerations for Mobility Data
Presentation Description: Over the last few years, many Alberta cities have launched scootershare and e-bikeshare programs. With those services has come a rigorous set of data-sharing requirements that allow cities to use trip and route data to evaluate system performance and deliver day-to-day management. Granular data sharing of this kind is likely to grow and encompass more mobility options and aspects of the transportation network.
While this data has many applications for urban planning and understanding the nature of transportation, it also comes with privacy challenges. Drawing on his experience, Matt will present the current practice for storing, using and de-risking shared personally identifiable mobility data for public agencies.
