Transformative tools for unboxing knowledge– Presented by Olga Mink, Baltan Laboratories

Transformative tools for unboxing knowledge– Presented by Olga Mink, Baltan Laboratories, at the Creative Ring Sum-It, on October 23, at Designhuis in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Baltan initiates experimentation on the crossroads of art, design, science and technology, evoking inquisitive ideas by bridging disciplines. In the past 10 years, Baltan brought together (un)related fields to create a larger body of knowledge. During this presentation, we will show few examples of practical tools to open up knowledge and foster cross-disciplinary understanding and collaboration.

Building responsible smart cities: putting people first– Presented by Angela Plohman, Mozilla Foundation

Building responsible smart cities: putting people first– Presented by Angela Plohman, Mozilla Foundation, at the Creative Ring Sum-It, on October 23, at Designhuis in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Smart cities have amazing potential: They can enhance public services, conserve resources, decrease pollution, and make for more transparent, accountable government. But if we don’t build responsible smart cities, then the internet’s ills — from hacking and surveillance to digital exclusion and injustice — will exist on a grander scale. When building the cities of the future, we need to ask not only ‘what’s possible?’ but also ‘what’s responsible?’ Continue reading “Building responsible smart cities: putting people first– Presented by Angela Plohman, Mozilla Foundation”

MUV: a novel approach to tackling urban mobility challenges– Presented by Karen Soens, LUCA School of Arts

MUV: a novel approach to tackling urban mobility challenges– Presented by Karen Soens, LUCA School of Arts, at the Creative Ring Sum-It, on October 23, at Designhuis in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.  Karen Soens will deliver the presentation together with Wio D’Hespeel.

Where has the ‘mobile’ in urban ‘mobility’ gone? Cities usually tackle the Mobility Challenge with impressive infrastructural interventions, urban planning, smart traffic systems, etc. A more service design based approach is currently also catching on quite well, sometimes fuelled by a co-creative design approach.

MUV is exploring a totally new angle: gameplay! How can a game have an impact on (local) mobility behaviour. Can the data recorded and generated by the game be the glue that holds together an ecosystem of inhabitants, policy makers, local organisations and businesses, hackers and makers, data specialists and municipality departments?

How to improve your services with user data?– Presented by Robin Verleisdonk, Eindhoven Library

How to improve your services with user data?– Presented by Robin Verleisdonk, Eindhoven Library, at the Creative Ring Sum-It, on October 23, at Designhuis in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Based on the Design Thinking methodology we developed a tool that provides the Library-visitor with book suggestions based on user data. Library-visitors get suggestions for new books to read based on the ‘others also read’ principle. This innovation is important because the expectation of the consumer in 2018 is increasingly shifting to ‘What’s next’. Think of functionalities such as Spotify’s Discover Weekly or the recommendations of Netflix.

Faster, cheaper, better: the advantages of using the Smart City StarterK!t – Presented by CeesJan Mol, Creative Ring, at the Creative Ring Sum-It, on October 23, at Designhuis in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Almost cities sooner or later embark on a mission to become a Smart City. Eindhoven was one of the cities that was connected to the Internet early on, as Philips worked with Cisco to build one of the first technological corporate Internet infrastructures. Based on that headstart, Eindhoven has now converted its five years development in Living Lab Stratumseind into robust software.

Do you want to avoid investing years of effort and funding in yet another solution? Do you want to move ahead faster re-using tools already developed? Do you want to speed up the transition to Smart City by collaborating with other smart cities? Use the Smart City StarterK!t to launch your efforts and you will become a Smart City faster, focusing more of your investments on applications that will really help your citizens.

The Translation Business – Presented by Harm Hofmans, MU

The Translation Business – Presented by Harm Hofmans, MU, at the Creative Ring Sum-It, on October 23, at Designhuis in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

The Creative Code stimulates children to code like an artist and offers teachers assistance and training in order to do so.

In order to close the gap between programming skills and creativity MU explored the world of primary and secondary schools and asked teachers what would help them the most in closing this gap.

The answer was simple: an easy to grasp line wherein programming skills and creativity would be logically build-up, step by step.

While we were doing so we acknowledged -together with the schools- the added value of ”the art approach”, wherein students were challenged to approach the world like an artist.

It made us reshape the line and develop a modulair set of elements that teachers can fit in their programmes in order to make complex theories, concepts and programming languages accessible to kids. Continue reading “The Translation Business – Presented by Harm Hofmans, MU”
