In June 2018, the World Economic Forum chose the Detroit region to pilot the concepts behind the integration of disparate mobility modes. MIDAS affiliated faculty, Danai Koutra and Aditi Misra, and fellow, Arya Farahi, made significant contributions to the forum’s recent publication “Digitizing and Transforming Mobility Systems: Lessons from the Detroit Region.”

Beyond all else, the pilot demonstrated that the power of data rallies across sectors, interests and operating models. In a world that still suffers deeply from socioeconomic disparities, persisting racial segregation, a profound gender gap and lack of access to core services such as healthcare and education, the potential for improving the state of the world via data-driven technologies has never been greater.
