Nervousnet: co-creating the data city

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


The ‘Internet of Things’ is both a buzz-word and a reality. Experts estimate that in the future there will be 7 times more connected things than people. For cities these connections offer unprecedented advantages to monitor and adjust city operations in real time. While currently the big IT corporations are pushing city governments to acquire their hardware and software, the Nervousnet developed by Professor Helbing and his team is run  as a 'Citizen Web', built and managed by its users. Inspired by Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap, people, companies and devices will be able to interact with Nervousnet in 3 ways: by contributing data; by analysing the crowd-sourced datasets; and by sharing code and ideas. The aim is to yield societal benefits, business opportunities and jobs. Professor Helbing will address the basic components and principles of Nervousnet, and show examples of its usage and benefits for future cities.  Nervousnet is affiliated with BOLD Cities.
