Ricette di Smart City


Un pizzico di wifi, una spolverata di opendata, una porzione di sensori e la città intelligente è servita. È proprio come sembra. Le parole della smart city sono tutte – o quasi – termini inglesi, e super specializzati. Difficile capirli semplicemente risalendo al loro significato letterale, poiché l’inglese è meno specifico delle lingue latine, e i significati si trasformano componendo aggettivi e sostantivi in diversi modi.
Per Connected City Council, Urbano Creativo ha pubblico questo ebook che è per metà glossario e per metà antologia per fare ordine nell’intricato groviglio di parole e significati della smart city.

Smart Citizen, Istituzioni e Politica


Da parte delle Istituzioni deve manifestarsi la volontà di dotare i cittadini di piattaforme e strumenti che consentano il pieno manifestarsi del loro protagonismo consapevole.
Da parte dei cittadini deve manifestarsi la volontà di partecipare ai processi di cambiamento e di trasformazione di un territorio attraverso attività positive. Le potenzialità delle piattaforme digitali sarebbero sprecate se fossero utilizzate esclusivamente per protestare.
(dal blog di Michele Vianello)

News Explorer

The News Explorer has arrived. News Explorer uses the Alchemy API to automatically construct a news information network and present large volumes of news results in an understandable fashion. Now that we are able to extract semantic data from the news with advanced Watson NLP technology, we can provide new ways of visualizing and understanding news as it occurs. The News Explorer is a cognitive web application that is available on Bluemix. News Explorer was developed only recently, but in the few weeks since the first version became operational, it has received tremendous attention in IBM communities. Now we are pleased to release the beta version to all our customers, and partners.

Charting culture

This animation distils hundreds of years of culture into just five minutes. A team of historians and scientists wanted to map cultural mobility, so they tracked the births and deaths of notable individuals like David, King of Israel, and Leonardo da Vinci, from 600 BC to the present day. Using them as a proxy for skills and ideas, their map reveals intellectual hotspots and tracks how empires rise and crumble. The information comes from Freebase, a Google-owned database of well-known people and places, and other catalogues of notable individuals. The visualization was created by Maximilian Schich (University of Texas at Dallas) and Mauro Martino (IBM).

Network Earth

Earth is animated by complex interactions between its life forms, rocks, atmosphere, and water. All living creatures – animals and plants, bacteria, fungi, and others – are involved in a worldwide, multi-layered web of cooperation. In this video we explore, as an example, the connections that exist between Ants and Plants, and we discover the resilience and fragility of this network. Our life depends on the health status of these and many other connections between all life forms, and the film shows how it is possible now to monitor these connections and identify whether ecological systems are in danger of failing.
