Data Dilemma’s: Digital twins – hype or necessity?

Featured image

With the growing availability of data and technology, digital versions of objects or systems are getting more interesting. Pairing the virtual and physical world, it is possible to continue critical physical processes while digitally experimenting and looking for improvements. The ‘digital twin’ therefore is an interesting feature, also in urban development.

Governments are exploring what a digital twin can mean for them or have already taken the first steps. Some with a clear output or use case in mind, some to experiment and build upon for the future. Setting up a digital twin of a city or region is complex and could therefore become costly. A digital twin may even grow into a
system where no one is able to comprehend how an implication has come about anymore.

In a discussion with a number of digital twin projects, we will address opportunities and barriers. Are current projects more than 3D models? What are the key enablers and challenges in starting digital twins for urban applications? Which steps are the
most difficult to implement? Do we fully trust on the system and will reality be handled by a computer? How are decisions for further development made?

Join us for these and of course the questions from the audience during this session of Data Dilemmas on the 17th of December!

About the Data Dilemmas series
Digital Twins show us that possibilities of using data and new technologies to address urban challenges are endless. We use data to make cities safer, cleaner and, for example, more accessible. But do we really need the data in all cases? What happens to all the data that is collected? Which choices did people make and why? Which dilemmas can be encountered? These questions are important for everyone; for governments, knowledge institutions, residents and companies. Amsterdam Smart City likes to explore with you which decisions are needed for responsible use of data.
Data Dilemmas is a collaboration between Amsterdam Smart City and the City of Amsterdam’s Datalab.

Transforming citizen sensing

Featured image

A two day conference on open source hardware for air quality measurement across borders.

This is an online event. Information on how to join the meetup will follow after registration.



In many corners of the world, people choose to measure local air quality out of concern for their neighbourhood, their health, the climate or agriculture. These citizens collect data with the help of affordable and accessible sensor technology and sometimes come together to be part of a citizen sensing network - think of the global networks of open source hardware such as GOSH and Hackteria. And then there are international sensor communities, such as global platform Sensor.CommunityPublic Lab and Smart Citizen kit, and Dutch initiatives, such as SnuffelfietsMeet je stad and Hollandse Luchten. These citizen sensing initiatives now have a wealth of knowledge and experience in making open source sensors. They form sensing communities that collaborate successfully on a local level. This often takes root in top-down measurement programmes aimed at a specific group in a specific location. But air quality knows no borders — it is an urgent matter across the globe. It’s about time we share knowledge, learn from each other, and make sensor technology accessible to a broad and international group with a common environmental concern.

On Wednesday December 9th and Thursday December 10th Waag and SODAQ will organise the Transforming citizen sensing conference. During this two-day conference, a wide variety of citizens, environmental activists, makers, ecologist, technical experts and researchers will come together to discuss their concerns and needs around air quality measurement. Global sensing initiatives are invited to share their knowledge. The goal is to identify the requirements a sensor should meet in order to address the common issue and to discover the limits of what is technically possible.

Involve the user in the design process
The production process of (sensor) technology is often inaccessible to the consumer, who has little or no say in the subject of the product. During this conference, the communities that use sensor technology will be involved in the first phase of the design process. This open production process is also referred to as open source hardware (OSH). Open source hardware is not only about transparent, accessible and reproducible hardware, but is mainly aimed at a participatory and community-driven design process. The experiences of communities form the basis of the design and the entire process (from design to prototype to product) is transparent for users.

What concerns are most pressing globally? What design challenges do these concerns present to sensor making? And what can we learn from experienced open source hardware initiatives around the world? Join us to find out.

Your input will be considered during the development of Sodaq and Waag’s open source prototype.

Day 1 | sensor making: from use case to design challenge
On day one we will start with presentations by sensing initiatives. What prompted them to start the initiative, what lessons have they learned, what was the biggest design challenge and how do they involve the community? After this there will be a joint discussion about the bottlenecks in measuring air quality and we will go deeper into why and what air quality sensors can help for. We will end this day with a clear overview of the needs of the participants and the related design challenges. In addition, we will let you know what role participants have in the further development of the sensor.

When: Wednesday December 9
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm

19:00 hrs - Introduction programme
19:05 hrs - Presentation use cases*:
-  Lukas Mocek, Sensor.Community
19:40 hrs - Q&A
19:50 hrs - Break
20:00 hrs - Sharing concerns and identify needs
20:30 hrs - Formulate design challenges
21:15 hrs - End

Day 2 | from design challenge to first sensor concepts
On day two, sensor makers will share their knowledge on: electricity, internet connection, sensor technology, modularity, software, data quality and data visualisation. In groups, researchers, data specialists and citizen initiatives will work on the design challenges of day one. Your input and knowledge will therefore have a direct impact on the sensor that will be developed in 2021. At the end of the day, you will know the latest developments in (air quality) sensors, you will have gotten to know other makers, you will have made an active contribution to the design of a new air quality sensor and you will be part of a worldwide network of sensor makers.

When: Thursday December 10
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm

19:00 hrs - Introduction programme
19:05 hrs - Presentation use cases*
19:40 hrs - Q&A

\ Speakers will be announced on this page shortly.*

Do you have experience in making sensors and would you like to share your knowledge with others in the field? And do you want to be part of a worldwide, open source hardware community?

join us online on december 9 & 10

Open Next
The Transforming citizen sensing conference is part of the European Open Next project. This open source project links to the maker movement. This movement reduces the distinction between professional makers and amateurs. Open source hardware (OSH) is an important part that contributes to this. It makes knowledge sharing available in an accessible way, so that innovation and the do-it-yourself culture is reflected in the home and at work.

This means that products or services are no longer designed to be patented, expensive or closed, but rather accessible and transparent. A well-known platform for OSH is Wikifactory. Here everyone can share his or her idea, but also improve and recreate ideas or products from other people. For proprietary rights, you can choose from several tested and established certificates such as, FOSS (based on OSH), Creative Commons(which is linked to different creative products) or CERN, which focuses on specific OSH and offers a choice of both commercial and non- commercial goals. For example, a non-commercial certificate no longer protects a complete product, but can be opened up under a number of conditions. Consider releasing construction drawings of an air quality sensor so that they can be downloaded from anywhere in the world. In this way you give people at home or at work the opportunity to build something themselves with which to measure their air quality and you increase the range and reliability of the measurements. This way of working has an impact on the traditional business model and deserves a redefinition in today's society. The certificates mentioned make it possible to enter into an inclusive collaboration during the design and development phase and can be extended to the development of new versions. Citizens and communities can then be involved based on their needs and/or skills.

Waag en Sodaq
Waag previously developed the HoLu sensor with participants from the local measurement communities of Hollandse Luchten. They deal with air pollution on a daily basis and are concerned about their health, environment and climate. By formulating the design questions together with them, we ensure that the technology serves what the citizen scientists need. Waag and Sodaq are working together and are investigating how the HoLu sensor kit can be further developed into a sustainable sensor based on open source hardware. Sodaq is specialised in developing sensor technology with an interest in open-source hardware developments. Together we work towards the goal of developing an air quality sensor based on input from a wide audience, so that we can make sensor technology accessible at a global level and thus connect with other communities where the theme of air pollution is urgent. The results of the conference and the design drawings will be shared here at a later stage. In January we organise a series of design prints that you can be part of.

Wicked Problems

Featured image

Te wicked? Niet voor ons.

Wij werken allemaal aan urgente, complexe, maatschappelijke uitdagingen. Issues die schier onoplosbaar lijken, van dilemma’s en paradoxen omgeven, nog niet duidelijk hoe het moet. Wel is duidelijk dát het moet, dat we elkaar nodig
hebben en dat we er NU aan moeten beginnen. Om met de woorden van Jan Rotmans te spreken; we leven niet in een tijdperk van verandering maar in een verandering van tijdperk. En hier hoort een nieuwe gereedschapskist bij.

En of je nou aan energietransitie werkt, andere mobiliteitssystemen, creëren van waterstofhubs, peer to peer autodeelsystemen, het maakt niet uit, we zien dat al deze opgaven op enig moment tegen gelijksoortige barrières aanlopen. Op samenwerking, financiering, privacy, onvoldoende aansluiting op de maatschappij, om maar een paar voorbeelden te noemen.

Unieke samenwerking
Als Amsterdam Smart City netwerk willen en kunnen we deze opgaven niet laten liggen. Door het bundelen van onze kennis en expertise kunnen we als netwerk iets unieks bieden en de wil en durf tonen om deze barrières te doorbreken. De betrokken partners die dit uitdenken en begeleiden zijn RHDHV, Kennisland, Drift, NEMO, Arcadis, Alliander, HvA en Metabolic. Zij bundelen hun expertise en ervaring om de echte vragen boven tafel te krijgen, tot nieuwe manieren van samenwerken te komen en barrières te doorbreken. We richten ons met name op de start van de samenwerking. Gezamenlijk ontwikkelen we een ‘wicked problem aanpak’. Op een nieuwe manier, lerend door te doen, exploratief.

Waar moet je aan denken?
Wat is eigenlijk het echte probleem? Wiens probleem is dit? Hoe kijken anderen er tegenaan? Welke andere partijen lijken nodig? Hoe vind je ze? Hoe ga je om met eigenaarschap en botsende frames? Hoe zorg je dat je al in
een vroeg stadium de maatschappij (bewoners, ondernemers, werknemers, etc) betrekt en hun ervaringen in het project trekt? Het wicked problem team zet nieuwe methoden in voor het beantwoorden van deze vragen. En het creëren van de benodigde commitment om het vraagstuk aan te pakken. Niets staat van te voren vast, want we passen ons aan aan wat we tegenkomen. Met elkaar ontwikkelen we een nieuwe aanpak om de barrières te doorbreken.
