Invited Talk Michael Szell at Urban Complex Systems

October 27 @ 11:00 - 12:00

Making cities better with human-centric urban data science Making our cities better and sustainable is key to solving the climate and urban transport crises. To this end, urban data science offers new tools to quantify societal problems in cities and to propose human-centric solutions to policy makers. In this talk I outline our recent and ongoing efforts towards that end, focusing on urban transport and vulnerable road users. I discuss inequalities between transport modes through mobility space and collision threat…

Talk Michael Szell at UrbanSys21

October 28 @ 09:00 - 10:00

Growing cohesive urban bicycle networks City planners worldwide are increasingly realizing that cycling can be a promising solution to their unsustainable car-centric transport systems. However, common bicycle network planning practices follow piecewise ad hoc approaches which do not take into account the transportation network and its structural complexity as a whole. Here we take a first step in exploring systematically the general geometric limitations in the development of urban bicycle networks, using tools from network science. We study the process…
