This is an informal meetup on real-time computational analytics, particularly for local governments.
Say "hi" to someone and start talking.
As an independent software developer who contributes algorithms, you can have three revenue streams:
The world is urbanizing rapidly. City governments can benefit from real-time analytics that optimize limited resources such as emergency response, sanitation and law enforcement.
Government analytics is dominated by companies that sell all-inclusive software packages or seek big consulting contracts. The majority of citizens and governments will not have access to platforms that cost millions of dollars. For the limited few who have access, most will only use a small subset of the features included in these expensive systems.
Instead, let us have a real-time analytics platform for the general public, where algorithms are free or cost less than a dollar per use. Users pay only for what they need, while software developers are paid each time their algorithm runs.
NYC Mayor's Policy and Strategic Planning Analytics Team has been developing computational models for the past few years and we have started working with them to put some of their algorithms online.
