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

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.

Veera Vihula

SUM-IT Workshop: Spatial service design – Presented by Veera Vihula, City of Espoo, at the Creative Ring Sum-It, on October 23, at Designhuis in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Veera Vihula and Hannu Tuomisaari are the workshop leaders.

In this workshop, you will be offered the Make with Espoo toolkit developed to invite citizens, associations and enterprises to co-creation of and open participation in solutions to wicked urban challenges. The workshop uses as an example the ”service centre” concept that merges everyday city life with a number of public services in a shopping mall. You will be informed about the background of the toolbox and a hands-on exercise is arranged to let you familiarise yourself with the actual tools. You will go home with a set of conceptual and practical tools, and a commitment by the City of Espoo to engage in further dialogue with interested participants.

In Espoo, the Make with Espoo toolkit has been developed under the 6Aika programme based on the learnings of Espoo re-defining their public service offering.
The insights are widely applicable for any set of services towards any given target audience.

Organized by the City of Espoo Continue reading “SUM-IT Workshop: Spatial service design – Presented by Veera Vihula, City of Espoo”
