Nuevo seminario de la serie “Nuevas soluciones con Big Data” organizados por el UC3M-Santander Big Data Institute (IBiDat) donde se presentarán problemas reales en distintos campos  y la solución aportada utilizando todos los datos disponibles. Lo seminarios intentan ser un punto de encuentro de profesionales y académicos para presentar problemas y analizar posibles soluciones basadas en Big Data.

El siguiente seminario será el viernes 05 de abril a las 9.30 en la sala 4.0.D03 del edificio nº 4 (Torres Quevedo) del Campus de Leganés de la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid y finalizará a las 11:00.

En esta ocasión el seminario tendrá como título “The atlas of inequality: understanding segregation at high resolution(the talk will be in English). Será presentado por Esteban Moro Egido: Visiting Professor (MIT Media Lab) and Associate Professor (UC3M). More information at estebanmoro.org

Segregation is hurting our societies and specially our cities, where the fact that we live apart from other racial, economical or social groups carries tremendous economical and societal consequences. Not only for the people living in poor neighborhoods, but for the region as a whole. Most studies still describe people’s segregation patterns using census areas. However, encounters between people happen in places, not census areas, so our understanding of segregation still relies on very coarse-grained spatial description of how people interact or encounter in our cities. Using a massive dataset of high spatial resolution movements of 4.5 million people in 11 of the largest metropolitan areas in the US we have studied how encounters of different economic groups happen in our cities to determine the economic segregation at the level of places (venues) and individual users. We’ve found that some type of places (some restaurants, education, religious places) are constantly segregated across US, while some other (science museums, hospitals, etc.) are not. Furthermore, most of the segregation/isolation that individuals experience in their daily lives does not depend on where they live, but on their individual behavioral patterns (type of places visited, social exploration, etc.). We discuss the implications of our results in the context of future development of areas and in the ever-changing evolution of our cities.

We will also present our new platform “The Atlas of Inequality” where people can check the segregation of different public places in the Boston area.
