  7. 7. Transition: fromlinear to non-linearworld80% of our planet is covered by mobilenetwork there are in fact more mobiledevices than people, this level of connectivityand interconnectivity is unprecedented.alan moore |
  8. 8. The challengeof complexityThis brings us onto how do we deal with a more complex world?And the challenges this complexity presents; challenges in our dailylives, challenges for our cities, for our changing climate, the everincreasing demand to better manage the resources we have?So how do we answer that question?alan moore |
  9. 9. BIGDATAThe rise of what I call the mobile society draws us towards perhaps a defining moment inthe evolution of humanity and the civilizations we are going to create. This moment can bedescribed as BIG DATA. In 2004 I described refined data and lots of it as the back gold ofthe 21st Century. GLOBAL Mobile data is going to transform our world because the volumeof data sent through mobile devices will exceed 129.6 exabytes by 2016. We are going tomove from talking about DATA MINING TO DATA MEANINGalan moore |

  11. 11. Non-linear living breathing eco-systemAt an atomic level mobile data is reprogrammingour world into a new living breathing eco-systemthat will in many ways enlarge the opportunityfor humanityalan moore |
  12. 12. This explosion ofinformation, is restructuringour world blending our digitaland analogue worlds into anew reality – one that is moresentient, more conscious,more reflexive.Complexity, diversity, beauty and new structuresblending our realityalan moore |
  13. 13. Interfacing withoutinterferenceWe, that’s all of humanity arecollectively the mid-wives of bringinga new consciousness into existence.It is the beginning of the consilience,the unification of knowledge.In fact the architecture of our own brainsuggests the future of knowledge mayreside in a different kind of BIG.alan moore |
  14. 14. * Life-enabling * Life-simplifying * NavigationalThis big knowledge, this newconsciousness will increasinglybe accessed though mobile devicesthat enable us to have a more sensoryimmersion into the blended realitythat now surrounds us.Remember, technology only succeedswhen it meets fundamental humanneeds, humanity and technology aremore intimately linked like our DNAthan we like to appreciate.alan moore |
  15. 15. Smart citiesSo returning to the idea of Big knowledge, sentience,and a living breathing eco-systemThis BIG intelligence enables us to organize at agreater level of complexity and begins to redefine ourphysical world even at a city wide scale.alan moore |
  16. 16. Smart citiesFor example in Rio what is called intelligentdynamic data is interconnecting many of thecities data sets that provides deeper insightsfrom this smarter city helping to Improve:transportation, public safety, energy,healthcare, refining the quality of peopleseveryday life.People buildings and its infrastructurebecome more intimately engaged witheach other.traffic generated by machine to machinecommunication is set to increase 22-foldby 2016.
  17. 17. Robot ForPersonalIntelligentTransportSystemAnother example of a smartercity is driverless cars :ROPITS was developed forJapan’s growing population ofelderly people and people withphysical disabilities.Tsukuba is one of the first citiesin Japan to allow self-drivingvehicles.alan moore |
  18. 18. Programming your destination before youget into your car and it takes you safely toyour final destination. This is a big datasolution not possible without mobilecommunications
  19. 19. Respray your realityIn cities we now finda world daubed withdigital information:comments, ratings,images and videos ontop of places, objects.It is personal,informative, sometimestrivial and sometimessubversive.This digital informationwill become increasinglyvisible – will disruptbusinesses, challengethe law and transformhow we navigate theworld. alan moore |

  24. 24. Crisis managementRecent climate changemodels predict anincrease in extremeweather events.Governments and NGOsaround the world facemounting pressure toprovide disaster relief tomany vulnerablecommunities. Events inthe USA, like HurricanesKatrina and Sandy, haveshown that emergencyservices don’t have thecapacity to reacheveryone in need. Incountries like Haiti thesituation is even moredesperate. How canmobile networktechnology and p2pnetworks helpvulnerable people?alan moore |

  26. 26. Ushahidi has evolved a sophisticated crisis management platform that createstime stamped geo-location based maps which enable the gathering crisisinformation from people on the ground providing invaluable knowledge andinsight into events happening in near real-time.combining (mashing up) open source software, mobile geo location data,Google maps, text messaging and information gathered from other datasources.alan moore |

  29. 29. Predicting conflictIf we stick with humanitariancrisis for the momentCould this sentient world withits vast intelligence be able topredict an unfolding crisis? Forexample prior to the tragedythat unfolded in Rwanda nowdescribed as genocide data tellsus that purchases of mobilephones, sim cards, and fuel,spiked before the humanitariancrisis unfolded

  36. 36. How Patients Know Best is transforming the waypatients and clinicians’ manage chronic diseaseHealth care is essentially created out of data getting the rightdata to the right people at the right time Patients Know Besthas been designed around this insight
  37. 37. Patients know bestis a platform where allof a patients clinical datais available to both patientand the clinical team.It allows them to learntogether, the information isdynamic, constantly updatedProviding a significantimprovement to themanagement and diagnosis ofchronic disease.

  51. 51. Mobile networked financeAround the world mobile banking is beginning totransform our economies we see a steady rise of peoplehappy to bank in this way37% Kenyans receive their salaries via mobile40% Kenyan GDP transmitted by mobileWe are increasingly paying for more and more things withour mobile devices the future of payments, yes, the futureof money itself, is mobile.I predict that we will start to see an entire range ofdisruptive businesses delivering a range of financialservices in the very near future.When institutions fail people learn to getwhat they need from each other. Slow uptakein the banking sector leaves them vulnerable.
