To really understand the Internet of Things (IoT) requires application, implementation, and execution in the real world. IEEE IoT recently launched a program to provide the IoT community an interactive platform on which to engage with use cases, service descriptions, business models, and reference implementations that will be key to developing a vibrant IoT industry. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to contribute to the IoT cause, as well as get excellent exposure for your projects and ideas.
Analysing social media activity to discover community assets
- ICT CityPulse
- public, crowd sourcing
A community is told they have to find a space for 50 new homes. Do they go on the park, the allotments, or could there be a high rise development next to the high street? Can the developers build a community centre while they're at it? Finding the people who discuss the library, allotments, park & market on social media is a quick and cheap way to broaden the reach of the consultation process. Your favourite pub is closing down? Who else cares? If you can find all the other people who care about it, perhaps you can work together to save it. I have been building the platform to do this already. Please don't build it again!
