Is a community-led air quality sensing network that gives people a way to participate in the conversation about air quality.

The Air Quality Egg is a sensor system designed to allow anyone to collect very high resolution readings of NO2 and CO concentrations outside of their home. These two gases are the most indicative elements related to urban air pollution that are sense-able by inexpensive, DIY sensors.

The Air Quality Egg is developed by a community effort, born out of groups from the Internet of Things Meetups in NYC and Amsterdam. We are designers, technologists, developers, architects, students, and artists.

 

Smart Citizen es una plataforma para generar procesos participativos de las personas en las ciudades. Conectando datos, ciudadanos y conocimiento, el objetivo de la plataforma es servir como nodo productivo para la generación de indicadores abiertos y herramientas distribuidas, y a partir de ahí la construcción colectiva de las ciudades por sus propios habitantes.

Op 18 april vond in Beverwijk de start plaats van het project Hollandse Luchten, een onderzoeksproject waarbij inwoners van regio IJmond, in samenwerking met experts en beleidsmakers de luchtkwaliteit in kaart brengen.

 

In het project Hollandse Luchten meten burgers zelf de kwaliteit van de lucht met behulp van een grote hoeveelheid sensoren verspreid over meerdere locaties in de regio.

Sensordrone is a very small multiple sensor device that communicates with smartphones with Bluetooth. It is a platform technology with the potential to run hundreds of consumer apps. Developers can use Sensordrone to make new smartphone apps with environmental sensors. Developers can also use Sensordrone to connect other hardware to smartphones by using Sensordrone's open API and existing bluetooth connection.

We were delighted to welcome Professor Beth Simone Noveck to the Institute for Government to discuss her new book, Smart Citizens, Smarter State: The Technologies of Expertise and the Future of Governing, and how the UK civil service can gain new forms of expertise from innovative technologies.

 

Prof Noveck is currently Director of the Governance Lab, and its MacArthur Research Network on Opening Governance. From 2009 to 2011, she served in the Obama Administration as the nation's first deputy chief technology officer and director of the White House Open Government Initiative. A graduate of Harvard University and Yale Law School, she serves on the Global Commission on Internet Governance and chairs the ICANN Strategy Panel on Multi-Stakeholder Innovation.

 

Prof Noveck delivered a speech, which was followed by a conversation with Dr Jo Casebourne, Programme Director at the Institute for Government.

Amsterdam Urban Innovation Week 2013

You can get an impression of the feelings and attitudes of people in Linz towards the environment, mobility, security, the housing situation and the public sphere from the Smart Citizen Sentiment Dashboard (SCSD) on the Ars Electronica Center. Like an ongoing opinion poll, the SCSD features a simple interface that gives people the opportunity to personally rate the quality of life in this city.The information thus gathered goes into a database of feelings that’s translated into a visual vocabulary and depicted on the Ars Electronica Center’s media façade. In this way, the SCSD makes a splendid, high-profile statement that’s designed to foster an ongoing dialog about life in Linz.

Estaba en Vienna OPEN y ya volví.

Discutimos asuntos relacionados con Open design, Open architecture y Open data.

Esta casita representa muy bien lo que está pasando allá. La construyó www.wikihouse.cc/ bajo estos principios:

1. Safe: Maximize the safety, security, health and wellbeing (physical and mental) of users at all stages of the product life.

2. Inclusive: Design products, processes and documents that are accessible and intuitive.

3. Modular: Elements can be independently altered, substituted, mended or improved.

4. Design for mistakes: Make it hard to get wrong, or not matter if you do.

5. Design the next: Try to design products "normal" rather than "alternative" or "fashionable". Find solutions that anyone can recognize as appealing and usable.

6. Superpower citizens: Afford as much capability and choice to citizens as possible. Democracy is a good design principle.

7. Neutrality: All companies can participate in the WikiHouse commons but they can not get a monopoly or lock-in.

Dentro de la casita se leyó el "Smart Citizen Manifesto" que más adelante les comparto.

How do we protect civil rights in fast digitising cities?

The internet has become indispensable in our daily lives. It is where we meet, learn and shop. It is also an essential tool for achieving equality, justice and fairness. But who is behind the buttons? Where are digital rights under pressure and how do we safeguard civil rights?

During the Cities for digital rights conference we talk about the dilemmas and we look for solutions together with citizens and policy makers.

Digital rights are an ongoing global challenge, with the cities in the front line. In cities we are confronted with the impact of large technology companies. Here it is often the first to feel what people need and what it is all about.

Smart Citizen / Eclectis event at the Nieuwmarkt in Amsterdam

The Smart Citizen Sentiment Dashboard in action! Based on RFID Technology the urban interaction device enables submissions of citizens' sentiments by a simple swipe with an electronic ID card through one of the three sentiment shades (mapped to smiley faces) "happy", "neutral", "unhappy".

A tangible physical knob enables people to choose the urban challenge they want to opinionate on.

Smart Citizen Lab kick-off presentation

"Fundación Ciudadano Inteligente" (Smart Citizen Foundation) is a non-profit social organization based in Chile, which promotes transparency and encourages active citizen participation, through the web and other information technologies. Its goal is to reduce information asymmetries in LatinAmerica, that currently gap the relationship of citizens with politics, the market and other social encounters. The organization conceives web technologies as a key tool for gathering, organizing, illustrating and sharing information through the social web, with the aim of promoting informed citizen actions and accountability. Our web platform www.ciudadanointeligente.cl hosts different apps, that are used as citizen tools to promote transparency and citizen participation.
