WANTED: Launching customer for AI audio analysis project with Google, ML6 and SensorTeam

Google, ML6 and SensorTeam are joining forces and are looking for your help

We have started a proof of concept to recognize sound by expanding our cutting edge wireless sensor-technology with AI based audio analysis models from ML6.

SensorTeam’s IoT SoundSensor™ is an extremely accurate and cheap sound sensor which is solar powered, LoRaWAN compliant and LTE-M ready. This plug-and-play outdoor sensor runs autonomously anywhere in the world.

Sound recognition from regular ambient noise can be interesting for many reasons:

- Smart maintenance and Industry application
- Social noise disturbances from festivals, events or terrasses
- Public safety: gunshots, explosives, angry crowds
- Noise impact of airplanes, trains or highways
- Indoor noise solutions (office, security)
- Your idea here ;)

Interested in our technology or a mutually beneficial collaboration with Google/ML6 and SensorTeam? Do you have a relevant use case for our technology? Please contact us by sending an email to info@sensorteam.io.

Sign up for the Amsterdam Mobility Challenge!

The Metropolitan Region Amsterdam (MRA) expects to grow by two million people and more than 200,000 houses in the next 30 years. Because of this; a complex mobility challenge arises that has to answer to the following questions:

• How can we keep the traffic flowing in a way that allows people to get where they need to be?
• How can we make sure goods will be delivered to people and companies?
• How can we approach this challenge knowing that we are moving towards an emission-free world?
• How can we maintain investment levels in infrastructure at an acceptable and affordable level?

We’re challenging teams to develop solutions that focus on:
• Optimization: improve driver, vehicle and fleet efficiency
• Public transport & shared mobility: introduce new methods of transportation and multimodality that are more accessible and flexible for everyone
• Interactive systems with existing infrastructure

Solutions should contribute to Amsterdam’s 2025 zero emission target and should work for and benefit the whole ecosystem of the government, transportation and logistics companies, retailers, insurers, the automotive industry and tech/digital companies. In addition, a major focus should be to provide citizens with new modes of transportation that are faster, cheaper, cleaner, safer and more efficient.

First prize for the winning solution:
€4.000 + travel for two people per winning team to attend the Garage Opening Festival in Amsterdam, April 11, 2019, where they will pitch their idea to top CEOs from each industry.

Looking for interviewees for a thesis project

My name is Alicja Kepka and I am a 3rd-year student of Media & Information programme at the University of Amsterdam. I am currently working on my thesis which focuses on the development of smart cities. I'm looking for people working on interesting projects, companies, or organizations that might help me with my project.

The main goal of my research is to take a closer look at the discourse around smart cities in the Netherlands and explore the role of citizens in the decision-making and implementation processes. I am especially interested in investigating how companies and organizations involve citizens and how they deal with more vulnerable groups in the society (for example, computer illiterate or older generations) when thinking about smart city technologies.

Would you be interested in giving a short interview to answer a few questions about your organization, the development of smart cities, and the involvement of citizens?
The interview could take place in person, over the phone, or through the internet. It shouldn’t last longer than 1 hour. It would be also recorded and transcribed at the later stage. Your valuable input would be later used in the final publication, with all relevant acknowledgments.

Please don't hesitate to contact me via alicja.kepka@hotmail.com if you have any questions!

Best,
Alicja Kepka
