Pervasive IA for the sentient city

  3. cities are emergent systems
  4. civilization as we know it is largely a byproduct
  5. 50% of world population lives in cities 50% + of people live in cities and % is growing up

  9. does IA or pervasive IA have anything to do with this?

  14. information seeking strategies
  15. principle of least effort
  16. resilience as personal paths
  17. top-down
  18. bottom-up
  19. top-downTP TP pervasive information layer TP TP bottom-up
  20. for zombies
  21. or zombie run!
  22. the best of both worlds
  23. gothenburg
  24. 50% expected increase in personal travel in theGothenburg region in 2005-2025Transport-related CO2 emissions should decrease by 4%in 2010 and by 75% in 2050 in respect to 1990Public transport travel should increase from 24% to35% in 2020
  25. impacting collective transportation behavior is a complex task with a multitude of factors weighing in
  26. better roads
  27. better services
  28. better information
  29. better … mh?
  30. these are not just different user types who havea range of well-delimited needs: these are usertypes whose needs change through time, in theshort and in the long period, and are shaped in accordance with the place they currently are
  31. or is it a “better system”?
  32. a seamless experience
  33. co-modal traveling
  34. 5
  35. a complex system with many channels
  36. “In my opportunistic cluster model,the bus stop I am standing in front of *is* the app. I open my phone and Im looking at what *this* bus stop has to offer”
