Imagine a world where our homes, our streets, our favorite places, our entire cities can quantify their activity, communicate signals, and operate off of each other to optimize the way they work as a whole.
We could detect and quantify events and flows, predict and refine happenings around traffic, weather and more. When physical environments are interconnected and quantified, they will create a transparent, safer and more efficient world. To get there, companies such as Weather Underground, Placemeter, and Mapillary are building relationships between technology and consumers through crowdsourcing and building a community around the data of the physical world. This panel will address this evolving trend and how we can work with our neighbors and cities to create a more efficient and sufficient world.
