Networks, Sensor Networks, Human Sensors

While I was in Barcelona to attend the Barcelona Design Week, Josep Blat presented at the Foro de Movilidad de RedIRIS in Madrid the research themes and works developed with him as my PhD supervisor. RedIRIS provides highspeed Internet connectivity and other network facilities for the academia in Spain. On their invitation we shared some insights on the innovative exploitation of network data and their implications.

The presentation ran under the name “Networks, Sensor Networks, Human Sensors” (pdf).

Connecting people
Wires and their exploitation under new scrutiny

Why do I blog this: Publics institutions that make a living transporting bits also become curious on extracting value from network data. Our presentation complemented very well a day that had started with a demonstration of the use of animal digital traces in the Doñana natural park in the South West of Spain.

Thanks to Gerard Alcorlo i Bofill for the invitation!
