  • Markus & Markus

    Research proposal

    How we access and interface with urban data.

  • Small group of Japanese computer enthusiast.

    What we DON’T think Street computing is
  • We are bathed in sea of data

    Some is readily accessible , other we can’t see yet
  • Publicly accessible data. Not provided on proprietary websites, but through re-usable data formats. Developers are encouraged to use the data (e.g. mashup Australia). Some are static (public toilet list), but some are dynamic (NSW fire incidents)
  • Different types of data sources: Public info & social / crowds
  • Sensor data

    Open source platforms Arduino

    Pachube
  • How do I find the information I need

    How do we access city information.

    How do we combine information on the fly?

    How do we task the city?
  • Old-style interfaces

    Dedicated web-services and mobile services

    Serve one particular purpose

    Not tailored to my needs
  • Our goal / vision
  • 3 different layers

  • Collecting data like things in your handbag
  • Composing / mashing up
  • The urban substrate, collect and mediate all sorts of data, a bit like pachube

    Including social data
  • Situated - context within which a data element was captured

    Physical or tanbigle composition

    User-centred: Our user studies
  • Own bespoke decision-support applications. Build your own!
  • Problems in Human-Computer Interaction within the urban domain
    How to expose digital information to ordinary people in the physical world
    How to enable ordinary people to combine this information in a manner that is personally/socially meaningful to them
  • Personal transport
    Distribution of urban data (councils, companies)
    Communities and civic sensor networks
    Open social standards for urban information
    Food consumption, lifestyle change and persuasive technologies

  • Marcus’s part
    Carlo -> MIT Eyestop
    SAP Research? (AUSTraffic)
    Locatrix

  • Urban Informatics, Marcus

  • We are M&M / Urban Informatics. Pitch to investors, come and talk to us.
