Cartes de villes par photographies de touristes ou d'habitants

Cartes de villes par photographies de touristes ou d'habitants | The Body and expanded Cities | Scoop.it

Eric Fischer a créé ces cartes de villes plus ou moins touristiques en utilisant les donnés géographiques insérés dans les métadonnées de photos envoyés sur des sites de partages d’images.
Pour différencier les touristes des habitants il a regardé dans le compte de chaque utilisateur si il y avait des photos de la même ville prises à plusieurs mois d’intervalle ou si elles étaient regroupés sur quelques jours.
Les touristes sont marqués en rouge, les habitants en bleu et en jaune ceux dont il était impossible de savoir.

Par exemple sur la carte de Paris au dessus un voit bien Montmartre en haut de la ville qui est bien sur pris en photo majoritairement par des touristes alors que le parc des buttes Chaumond juste à droite est principalement photographié par des locaux.
De la même façon en bas de la carte on voit Versailles fréquenté par des touristes alors que le parc de Sceaux est plus apprécié par les habitants bien que moins photographié.

Me++: The #Cyborg Self and the Networked City", William J. Mitchell | #smartcities #posthumanism

Me++: The #Cyborg Self and the Networked City", William J. Mitchell | #smartcities #posthumanism | The Body and expanded Cities | Scoop.it

In his new book "Me++: The Cyborg Self and the Networked City", William J. Mitchell tells the story of the reciprocal relationship between man and technology - how one shapes the other in a cyclical and temporal process. These mutually reinforcing phenomena are most visible when looking at design and architecture and their manifestation in cities in particular. The characteristic new architecture of the 21st century occurs at the intersection of three realms: electronic information flows, mobile bodies and physical places. So, what we are experiencing is not the replacement of the physical space with electronic versions, but the sophisticated integration of digital networks within physical supply chains.

luiy's curator insight, May 26, 5:01 AM

"Embedded within a vast structure of nested boundaries and ramifying networks, my muscular and skeletal, physiological, and nervous systems have been artificially augmented and expanded...My biological body meshes with the city; the city itself has become not only the domain of my networked cognitive system, but also – and crucially – the spatial and material embodiment of that system."

 

This is the fundamental thesis in Mitchell's book. It largely rests, as he states, on Gregory Bateson's insight that if you want to explain the locomotion of a blind man crossing the street "you will need the street, the stick, the man, the street, the stick, and so on, round and round." In Bateson's view, there is no clear distinction between internal cognitive processes and external computational ones. Mitchell translates this into the present by saying that we perceive, act, learn, and know through the mechanically, electronically, and otherwise extended bodies and memories that we construct and reconstruct for ourselves. And, as we are beginning to see, there is no clear limit to this extension. This is his explanation for why mankind is not only its own bodies, but tightly intertwined with its surrounding technologies:

Not long ago, fingerprints were the cutting edge of biometric profiling. Today, the use of biosignatures to identify individuals has expanded to include everything from iris and facial scans right through to DNA profiling and even the unique shape of a person's ass. Here's what you need to know about how companies and governments are tracking your biometrics.

Aldo de A. Barreto's curator insight, January 30, 10:00 AM

RT Mathias Klang @Klangabl


"The consensus of culture has to be opposed by the courage of art in its barbaric truth. Modern art is Cynicism in culture; the cynicism of culture turned against itself. And if this is not just in art, in the modern world, in our world, it is especially in art that the most intense forms of a truth-telling with the courage to take the risk of offending are concentrated."

Internet das Coisas começa a se disseminar no âmbito governamental

Internet das Coisas começa a se disseminar no âmbito governamental | The Body and expanded Cities | Scoop.it

Conexão de objetos e seres vivos à Internet abre possibilidades de economia e de serviços mais eficientes por parte do poder público. No Brasil, US$ 70 bilhões devem ser gerados no contexto da Internet das coisas aplicada à administração federal, estadual e municipal, mas há riscos à privacidade e ao funcionamento da máquina

Em uma apresentação de 1999, Kevin Ashton, então gerente de marcas da Procter & Gamble, afirmou que “adicionar identificação de radiofrequência (RFID) e outros sensores a objetos cotidianos criará uma Internet das coisas e fará as fundações de uma nova era da percepção das máquinas”. Foi uma das primeiras vezes que se utilizou a expressão “Internet das coisas”, que está relacionada, de forma resumida, à conexão de objetos cotidianos a redes de comunicação, possibilitando seu monitoramento e coleta de dados.(...)

luiy's curator insight, July 10, 6:00 AM

What else can we predict? In theory, any event that is not random, provided we have enough data to model the context. Examples include passenger load in public transports, availability of parking spots, traffic jams, waste production, energy consumption and revenues of a shop in a specific street. These all share a common underlying principle: use context rather than history to predict behavior.

 

In themselves, each of these predictions could lead to amazing new products and services. The real power though comes from integrating everything together and modeling an entire city and its interactions with people. For instance, if you can predict where people will need to go tomorrow, then you can create optimal bus routes, minimizing time to destination and walking distance, taking into account predicted traffic, weather and garbage collection schedules. In this ideal system, all services would be optimal and available to citizens at anytime. We call this new way of designing cities "Algorithmic Urbanism".

Why Intelligence Requires Both Body And Brain

Why Intelligence Requires Both Body And Brain | The Body and expanded Cities | Scoop.it

Western philosophy has traditionally separated mind from matter and brain from body. In recent years, however, cognitive scientists have turned the assumption on its head that we can study the mind based on the brain alone..

Many now view the brain as part of a larger “mind” – a cognitive system embodied in the organism’s physical structure and embedded in its surrounding environment. These twin concepts of embodied and embedded cognition are challenging the way we understand human intelligence, and in the process transforming neuroscience, robotics, philosophy, and a host of other fields concerned with the mind.
