  • Quantified Cities

    by Igor Schwarzmann, Peter Bihr, Johannes Kleske and David Bausola

    There are two bodies of data in a city. The physicality and the people; both are generating huge amounts of data that is being shared publicly.

    Buildings broadcast their energy efficiency as much as a human records their sporting achievements.

    Where these data dimensions overlap produces a space that could be a cause for concern or an opportunity to sculpt.

    Who and what is an occupant of a city of data? Are we facing the creation of data ghosts in the city of data?

    Using methodologies from the Quantified Self community and City Planning to examine this phenomena - we shall be blending the self and city together in a special hands-on workshop to produce a working model of this situation.

    Three 10 minute introductions to the topics will be made by the team at the start of the session and then we dive into the workshop for an hour. We’ll be recording the process as a video - so come an be part of the exploration in the new frontier of urban living.

    Quantified Self application developers are strongly recommended to attend.

    At 1:30pm to 3:00pm, Wednesday 14th September
