Third Thursday – CityZen project, Brazil

The Future Cities Catapult’s flagship monthly networking event is exploring the Cityzen project.


With improved living conditions and health care, increasing numbers of people in the UK  and across the world, people are living than previous generations.

That’s the focus of CityZen, a smart cities project taking place in Brazil using data and an innovative AI system from Inavya. The project takes a citizen-centred view of healthcare, using information about demographics, healthcare systems and location alongside personal experiences to create a data analytics toolkit designed to help improve efficiency when deploying resources.

Join us at the Third Thursday Networking event to hear from Dr Saravjit Rihal, Senior User Researcher at Future Cities Catapult, and Dr Michael Wilkinson, CEO & founder of Inavya, the creator of AVATR, an AI platform that enables patients to create a digital profile that integrates with medical devices.

The speakers will share their vision for the future, discussing the interaction between citizens, data and healthcare, and the challenges cities face with the rapid growth in the over 60s population.

The speakers will also discuss how international research and overseas development challenged the project to develop qualitative research designs and create tangible tech features.
