New mobility systems are changing the shape of urban transportation. How can governments and researchers use the data created by scooters, bike-share and other systems to plan, regulate, and operate mobility systems? How are concerns about data privacy and data transparency best addressed? Michael Schnuerle, Director of Open Source Operations at the Open Mobility Foundation, will share his experiences and expertise with those interested in data, analytics, mobility, urban planning, and sustainability.

About the speaker

Michael Schnuerle was Louisville’s first Chief Data Officer in the Office of Civic Innovation and Technology and worked to use data to improve government performance and transparency, with responsibility for open data, citywide data strategy, and fostering employee data-driven decision-making.

He has spent 14 years in civic tech, and 24 years working on internet projects for Fortune 500 companies and startups. His first product as an entrepreneur was an online crime map built using open records requests and Google Maps in 2005. This grew into open data advocacy and building civic services around real-time transportation, public safety, geocoding, data standards, and APIs, and led to co-founding Louisville’s first Code for America brigade.

A recent focus was collaboratively building open source tools with other governments and partners through the Open Government Coalition and now works for the Open Mobility Foundation as Director of Open Source Operations.
