African Bus Routes Redrawn Using Cell-Phone Data

Researchers at IBM, using movement data collected from millions of cell-phone users in Ivory Coast in West Africa, have developed a new model for optimizing an urban transportation system.

The IBM model prescribed changes in bus routes around the around Abidjan, the nation’s largest city. These changes—based on people’s movements as discerned from cell-phone records—could, in theory, slash travel times 10 percent.

The multilayer temporal network of public transport in Great Britain

The multilayer temporal network of public transport in Great Britain | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

Despite the widespread availability of information concerning public transport coming from different sources, it is extremely hard to have a complete picture, in particular at a national scale. Here, we integrate timetable data obtained from the United Kingdom open-data program together with timetables of domestic flights, and obtain a comprehensive snapshot of the temporal characteristics of the whole UK public transport system for a week in October 2010. In order to focus on multi-modal aspects of the system, we use a coarse graining procedure and define explicitly the coupling between different transport modes such as connections at airports, ferry docks, rail, metro, coach and bus stations. The resulting weighted, directed, temporal and multilayer network is provided in simple, commonly used formats, ensuring easy access and the possibility of a straightforward use of old or specifically developed methods on this new and extensive dataset.

The Age of Networked Matter

In the next ten years we will enter the Age of Networked Matter, in which the connections between biology and machinery are brought to the forefront and we begin to rethink our roles in the world. Robots will form their own social networks, chairs will be digitally-rights managed, microbes will talk to kitchens, and every object will be six degrees away from the rest of the world.

Technology isn’t working

Technology isn’t working | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

The digital revolution has yet to fulfill its promise of higher productivity and better jobs. 

 

This report from The Economist states that new technology haven't boosted productivity (apart from a brief period between 1996 and 2004). This is known as the Solow paradox.

Open data could turn Europe’s digital desert into a digital rainforest

Europe needs to pursue a different strategy from Silicon Valley if it is going to reap the social and economic benefits of big data, according to Dirk Helbing, Professor of Computational Social Science at ETH Zurich, who aims to create an open, real-time data stream from the Internet of Things.
