Considerations in datavisualisation & Responsible Sensing Lab

Featured image

This evening we have:

Thijs Turel is one of the initiators of the Responsible Sensing Lab, a collaboration between Amsterdam and AMS Institute. Goal of the lab is to use public values (such as as a starting point for sensor system development. He will present thoughts on the role of hardware (as opposed to software) in safeguarding public interests and present two project as examples: a millimeter wave sensor for crowdedness sensing trying to push the notion of data minimization a quite a bit further than normally and the ShutterUp project, meant to democratize oversight on cameras in the city by outfitting public cameras with a shutter.

Aurore Paligot, besides her activity as a Data & Analytics Consultant (Positive Thinking Company, Tapp, Sonecom), Aurore Paligot conducts independent research projects on the interface between technology and the humanities. In this presentation, Aurore will propose a reflection on her practices as well as on the place of Data Visualization as an exploratory and reporting tool but also as a privileged point of contact with the public. She will address notions such as data literacy, inclusion, and data modeling, with illustrations from her own projects, the news, and other data visualization designers.

Featured image

Every 3th Wednesday of the month Sensemakers has presentations & discussions about IoT-related subjects.
This evening we have:

Urban Object Detection - Maarten Sukel
Maarten is Lead AI developer at the City of Amsterdamand will share the latest development in using object detection on real-time street level imagery to find issues on city streets, for example garbage, graffiti and broken assets, to allow for an objective gathering of data. Edge computing will help to safeguard privacy of the citizens while still optimizing the livability. Lead AI developer @ City of Amsterdam)

Drones & autonomous vehicles
Jeroen Bartelse, Insuring the 21st century @ Achmea | Business Innovation | EIT Urban Mobility | Amsterdam Drone Week | UAM

You will receive the event-link (Zoom) one day before the event. Presentations usually start at 19.05h & end around 20.30 with "open mic" when you can share your own story/event/question.
