Stephen Dale I've been following Dion Hinchcliffe for many years as well. You're fortunate to have met him in London. You bring up a very good point about monitoring our every move. As you say, there is a price we will pay one way or another for privacy and time will tell how this will all shake out in the end. I'd love to connect with you again, it's been a while. As you can see I launched Curatti and we've been very well received. Hope things are going well with you, let's catch up soon.

judycurtis's curator insight, April 17, 2014 9:57 AM

Amsterdam isn’t the first city to implement smart lighting as a gateway to a large smart-grid initiative. Paris is in the early stages of a 10-year effort to bring intelligence to a complex network of street lighting, traffic signals and related controls, part of an effort to upgrade Paris’ electricity grid and, like Amsterdam, turn Paris into a “smart city.”

 

“I think more and more cities are looking for what we call a killer app, an application that justifies the investment,” said Wim Elfrink of Cisco. “In Barcelona, it looks to be parking services. Paris has chosen lighting. That is one of the things we have to find out in the next six months: What are the unique Amsterdam problems?”

Heat Maps Reveal Where We Feel Emotions In Our Bodies

Heat Maps Reveal Where We Feel Emotions In Our Bodies | The Internet of our Future | Scoop.it

Chests puffing up with pride — and happiness felt head to toe — are sensations as real as they are universal. And now we can make an atlas of them.


Researchers have long known that emotions are connected to a range of physiological changes, from nervous job candidates’ sweaty palms to the racing pulse that results from hearing a strange noise at night. But new research reveals that emotional states are universally associated with certain bodily sensations, regardless of individuals’ culture or language.
