The Internet of Things is an important trend within big data. Within a few years we will have to talk in Brontobytes when we discuss data coming from sensors in the smart world of the future. The Internet of Things refers to objects that can be uniquely identified via an IP-address and all of them are connected to the Internet. Objects (which can be anything from a car, to a chair or a bottle of soda) that are equipped with identifiers can be managed and inventoried by computers and algorithms. These objects contain sensors and the data theses sensors collect are shared with an Internet-like structure. All those devices connected to the internet will create a smart world that will change the way societies work. Libelium created market research document with 50 Sensor Applications for a Smarter World and they compiled all those sensor applications into one infographic

Shirley de Silva's curator insight, October 22, 2013 12:21 PM

An airport should examine the basic factors that would lead to strong dissatisfaction of their passengers. Factors, such as efficient security-check, convenient signage system and variety of restaurants and bars are considered to be foundations of airport quality.

Plant-filled amphitheatre proposed for the High Line's final stretch | Proyecto Palantir | Scoop.it
New images unveiled this week reveal that the third and final phase of New York's High Line park will feature an enclosed amphitheatre filled with plants.

The bowl-shaped structure will create a new north-east gateway to the popular park - created across an abandoned elevated railway by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, landscape architects James Corner Field Operations and planting designer Piet Oudolf - and will form part of a new stretch wrapping around New York's old freight train yards. Named The Spur, the structure will be positioned at the widest point of the High Line, across the intersection of 10th Avenue and West 30th Street, and is conceived as "an immersive experience of nature.

Shirley de Silva's curator insight, November 25, 2013 10:31 AM

 

Museums are places of wonder, observation, and introspection. Airports, though less obviously, also elicit these actions and feelings. Historically people visited airports just to watch the planes take off and land, and ponder the modern-day miracle of flight.

judycurtis's curator insight, November 6, 2013 10:24 AM

This is a wonderful and savant essay by Shannon Mattern, a faculty member in the School of Media Studies at the New School in New York. 

 

Lest we forget, Ms Mattern brings us back to the evolution of cities, over centuries, stating that this Smart Cities "computational vision" isn’t entirely new. She asks us to trace today’s smart cities back to the durable metaphor of the city-as-machine. Far from a modernist invention, she says cities have long relied on machinic modules; the grid plan, for instance, has for millennia served as a “machine” for efficient circulation. Urban historians have also conceived the city as a machine for information management. 


Great article, superbly researched. A great read.
