Today’s investment and innovation environment in the US is not producing business startups. The US is in a 13 year slump. Tap into Innovation at the GCTC Expo this year in July and network with some of the most inspired people.
As we deep-dive global cities working to create value from data, we’re sharing city data portals among the Data Supercluster membership. Community leaders and other stakeholders may find key metrics to refine products, form Action Clusters, rally and reach out to Citizens.
In America, 40% of food is wasted. This is an astounding number. The Data Supercluster is examining how today’s waste stream management build environment might share data relevant to food waste. Is enough data available but hidden today? Can inferences from grocery and restaurant purchases drive data models that support food waste metrology?
A call for an Action Cluster to investigate methods to measure food waste, take action to mitigate food waste and measure results will be announced soon. To create your own Action Cluster in the Data Supercluster, use the NIST GCTC Action Cluster worksheet/application form.
WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system.
Expansive public spaces, roads that can change in colour and use, and buildings that act as open malls are some of the design ideas Google affiliate Sidewalk Labs shared in a public meeting Tuesday evening, as part of the consultation process for its proposed “smart city” development on Toronto’s waterfront.

The NIST GCTCData Supercluster group is working to advance the use of urban data by developing and sharing best practices and produce blueprints for the design, deployment and governance of urban data platforms and data exchanges and governance and , as well as deployed proofs by facilitating sharing collaboration among membership teams and stakeholders further practical application of civic data.
The Data Supercluster addresses critical issues on data platforms. Stakeholders have identified licensing, cyber-security, encouraging innovation, understanding use-cases and proofs of concepts as importantpriority areas of study and sharing. This build off of a In 2017 NISt convening with, the cities of Kansas City, Missouri and Bellevue, Washington teamed withand 20 other cities and several corporate partners to focusdiscuss on Data urban data, data visualization and data hosting platforms.
In early 2018, these efforts efforts of that area, and a new were formalized into a new Data Governance and Exchange Superclustereffort were merged. The scope of the Data Supercluster recently has expanded to embraced work being done at the University of Southern California, City of Coral Gables among others.
The SuperCluster is currently documenting the common experiences among Action Clusters that span Transportation, Public Safety, Utility, Wireless, Ag and Rural, and Education through this website, the Data Supercluster Google Group, face to face and online meetings.
The Data supercluster is open to all stakeholders in GCTC Smart City projects. Innovation using Open Data and networking often experience friction in deployment and operation.
“Emergency management has a lot of moving parts,” says Raimundo Rodulfo, Director of Information Technology for the City of Coral Gables, with a slight sigh of relief now that Hurricane Michael has left this city south of Miami largely unscathed. The same was not true after Hurricane Irma last September.
