  2. 2. How is the city translated into software and data? Programmable City Project Translation: City into Code/Data Transduction: Code/Data Reshape City THE CITYSOFTWARE/DATA Discourses, Practices, Knowledge, Models Mediation, Augmentation, Facilitation, Regulation How do software and data reshape the city?
  3. 3. Socio-technological data assemblage Material Platform (infrastructure – hardware) Code Platform (operating system) Code/algorithms (software) Data(base) Interface Reception/Operation (user/usage) Systems of thought Forms of knowledge Finance Political economies Governmentalities & legalities Organisations and institutions Subjectivities and communities Marketplace System/process performs a task Context frames the system/task Digital socio-technical assemblage HCI, remediation studies Critical code studies Software studies Critical data studies New media studies game studies Critical Social Science Science Technology Studies Platform studies Places Practices Flowline/Lifecycle The Data Revolution, Rob Kitchin, 2014.

  12. 12. Genealogy of a data model
  13. 13. Models are also actors  Models shape  how the world is viewed  the world of work  tools & techniques  the structure of an organization  how organizations interconnect with others  Models augment space  Models are socially constructed by people
  14. 14. Ontologizing the City - From Old School National Cartographic Based Classification toward a Rules Based Real-World Object Oriented National Database Object of Study  Data assemblage of OSi PRIME2  Examine how ‘real’ things are understood in the new object oriented data model  Assess if these change how space is modelled and then acted upon Time frame  Jan. 2015-2018 Data Management and Ethics  ERC  Maynooth University  SSHRC Tri-Council Case Study Outputs  Case study report  Data assemblage  Tracing the production of space  Genealogy from class to object  Academic publications Funding  Programmable City Project  P.I.

  15. 15. Data Collection Attend OSi & 1Spatial Road shows and public speaking events  One day coordinated field trip & group interviews at OSi Sligo (survey data capture unit)  Examine the Prime & Prime2 flow lines  Real-time survey and data update of a building  1.5 months as an embedded researcher, OSi in Phoenix Park  One-on-one interviews with key actors (Transcribed audio recordings):  Group interview  Document Collection  Collection of objects across time for Dublin
