Description: The overarching goal of this new Action Cluster is to improve the quality of life for citizens in the community and to improve the quality of service to those citizens. We are looking to do that in a cost-effective way that leverages city, open, private, community-generated, and other data with the idea being that data is a high value, low cost asset. The (initial) solution that we are looking to build is an “Intelligent Agent for Quality of Life”, where we leverage 311 and other data, but not limited to, to help identify and predict quality of life issues and how they will impact the local community. The project also involves developing use cases that represent common scenarios for activities that would normally be performed by human actors. The This project will provide (1) an actional product in the form of a “Quality of Life Officer” (IA); (2) replicable methodology that can be applied to other city or neighborhood needs and scenarios; and (3) templates and components for building out new applications. Challenges and Solutions: Using New Orleans as the primary city to base the solution around, we explored a number of use cases and settled on looking at Blighted properties, their impact on the community, how we engage the community and look for opportunities for redevelopment. Use Case Model is an important component of this project. A Use Case template will be developed around the knowledge of experts who manage blighted properties, communities who live with them, and businesses (non-profit and for-profits) who see them as an opportunity for future use. As part of this we need to be able to represent the data and become intelligent about the context and any predictions around that data. The data can be structured, unstructured or inferred and may require some enrichment. The concept of an Intelligent Agent, leveraging a range of data sources and aligned with use case scenarios, presents an opportunity for cities and neighborhoods to contribute to solving problems in their everyday lives. It also provides an opportunity for cities to collaborate and learn around specific types of issues (e.g., blighted properties, ZIKA virus, etc.) and to provide collaborative and low-cost solutions to problems. Major Requirements: 1. Business Requirements Definition: Understand the specific sets of challenges faced by cities in terms of quality of life issues 2. Use Case template development grounded on the expertise of individuals who resolve these problems on a daily basis, where expertise is drawn from multiple city agencies, neighborhood and community members, and the business community. 3. Data STrategy: understand the open, closed, private data that is available across the services and departments of the city so that we can define a holistic approach to identifying opportunities to improve services and engagement 4. Determine the Business Case: using the data, and correlations, patterns, etc, define what a Proof of Concept might look like 5. Proof of Concept: Build a PoC to drive and prove the business cases, KPIs, measurements, outcomes. Do this for a specific segment or community 6. Scale across a city: gain maximum economic benefit and social impact by scaling solution across selected city 7. Scale solution across many other cities, adapting for localized conditions and requirements. Performance Targets/ Key Performance Indicators (KPIs): ● Blighted Properties are converted to productive community resources ● Blighted Properties turnaround times are shortened ● Collateral effectives of Blighted Properties are reduced ● Community engagement is increased around the renewed properties ● Services which could not be provided due to resource requirements are now offered - citizens satisfaction with their neighborhoods and with the city governance is improved ● Trust of citizens in their local agencies and law enforcement is improved as their contributions are recognized ● 30% of time reduction in managing issues thanks to the algorithms that remove/aggregate redundant issues Measurement Methods:. Conducting multiple, continuous surveys Gather information about issues and assets over the lifetime of the project Each action will be evaluated with the actual benchmarking of the same actions own by the municipalities. If the municipality lacks these data, we will support them to produce the information before pilot deployment. Standards/Interoperability: Following the PPI approach (pivotal points of interoperability): participate in the NIST global public working group, foster discussion with existing solution providers, provide public github repository, crowdsourcing of expertise for predictive tools of specific data models related to the goals of the project ● Quality of Life Officer (IA) would be a solution to indicators in such sources as NNIP, STAR, Knowledge Index for Cities Replicability, Scalability, and Sustainability: The package of templates, analytical methods and methodologies can be shared with any neighborhood or city to replicate or to use to create extended applications. Implementation in min 3 cities, proactive engage with technical platform industry partners(like Microsoft, Intel, FIWARE, Cisco, Schneider, Hadoop, Google, etc), foster cooperation with stakeholder groups (like OASC, MetroLab, TM Forum, ICLEI or Smart City Council), publish as OpenSource repository, define API related to the CitySDK Standards, facilitating Hackathons and Challenges, facilitate open innovation bootcamps with clusters and local stakeholder groups Impacts: This cluster is focused on improving the quality of life to citizens and the community by providing better services is a more optimal manner, and to engage the community in a more meaningful way. Over time this will improve the quality of life across a number of aspects, social, crime/safety, health, socio-economic, knowledge and education. Details of these impacts are also described above in Brief Description Section Demonstration/Deployment Phases: Phase I Pilot/Demonstration June 2016: To be drafted based on - Knowledge elicitation interviews with experts and stakeholders on this topic - Use case modeling and establishment of thresholds for community alerts - Requirements, typical existing standards and implementations - Setting key performance indicators - Defining success benchmarks - Draft tasks and work packages, short term goals - Technical architecture and available standards and data models - Stakeholder values and benefits Phase II Deployment June 2017: To be discussed: min: - functional tested and implemented as pilot in 2-3 cities - Measured by KPI´s - Sustainability Plan - Impact analysis - Interoperability demonstration with platforms and other solutions - Portability and scalability, incl.
