i'm gonna discuss in the next two minutes of a specific for social participation
00:00:09
some discussion could be used to support
00:00:17
so we know how much we right i mean even if it's with my from using them but
00:00:21
then at the same time we know that there's a lot of computing going on in phones
00:00:26
so what you have in your pocket today allows you to do uh
00:00:32
things like this it can estimate where you are the places you go to in your daily life
00:00:37
can also uh know about activities you do especially freezes frequent uh connect into your uh
00:00:44
two years my watch or your um wearable devices but but you can also collect media in the form of images or videos
00:00:51
and also there are many more sensors on the phone that perhaps you don't use but they're they're they're anything from um
00:00:57
but it's the maximum letters to a gyroscopes that either information
00:01:02
perhaps you don't use it today but someone else could
00:01:05
and this is a really good the the main a topic or of the talk and we could use phones
00:01:11
not to take sell things but rather change the orientation of the phone to look at the world
00:01:15
and actually to try to make sense with information we can collect altogether in real time if you look at the
00:01:21
world with the phone so the key word here is to engage but you might wonder to engage format
00:01:27
so impact as we have been using these basic idea yeah we invite people to download
00:01:32
it out and use up to collect information for several different purposes here for examples
00:01:38
we could uh use this to friends and generate an open mark of points
00:01:42
of interest in a specific region in this case it's about it
00:01:46
we could also work with students of the university to make them
00:01:49
think like a workers of our angel in a crisis situation
00:01:55
and as him to actually go through the exercise of going to places collect
00:01:59
physically meetings also collect opinions about a specific uh topics of interest
00:02:06
or coming could actually use it as a way of collecting opinions in real time about specific topics of interest
00:02:14
and also we could work week with art is to try to promote a sustainable um
00:02:18
developments as the unsustainable tourism but backing artist to specific places and let them uh create
00:02:26
this is essentially a some other possibilities that the plot from a house that you're very simple yes to
00:02:32
invite people to participate in these more like that the collection uh challenges as we call them
00:02:36
for local courses so the basic words here are the local the
00:02:41
fact that he's someone could be an association and the
00:02:44
large see the one who needs that information and that promotes
00:02:48
through civic participation the collection of such kind of information
00:02:53
the basic um metaphor behind the platform is that each of us can contribute a little bit of data to a project
00:02:59
and it is only through the joint participation of many of us that we can collect
00:03:03
the data that is needed really by by the entity who has the need for
00:03:09
so how does it work to back to see these are regular up that you can uh then
00:03:13
load in a vote for i. phone android but mitchell walking through an example this is uh
00:03:19
a challenge that we are designed with the practical uh
00:03:23
professional there there are the chart inside so
00:03:27
and i got here was to actually invite students from this from the school to
00:03:31
a record or some of the traditions of only about a fantastic creatures
00:03:35
and to put themselves in the field and you will see a couple of
00:03:38
examples and then to create art around being in a place specifically valley
00:03:44
so the logic in in each case is the same as i said see these associations schools
00:03:49
mm even individual citizens can have for a specific reason the need for data
00:03:55
better could be about location data that could be media data could be surveys
00:04:00
and many of us don't just have a way of doing that easily
00:04:04
you come to civic that work and we can allow you to create this challenge you know the
00:04:08
worst to announce that you want to collect data in that you wanted people to participate
00:04:13
the application itself would allow you to to collect in that i just described before so text audio photos
00:04:20
video and continually we're adding new capacities to the plot from so you can support other data types
00:04:26
and finally in i think most importantly people can participate i think we have lots of
00:04:30
social meter channels of participation in there is is very active as we all know
00:04:35
but there's also something a corporate in terms of the logic around which i'm most
00:04:39
if not all of those uh social networks work really there's space or space
00:04:45
for talking of all the courses in collecting data about discusses that the not necessarily have to run
00:04:50
through the common social mean channels old of course i could be connected to those
00:04:54
channels to uh raise awareness in communicate for instance the success of specific charges
00:05:00
so how could participate what about uh about about a dollar a civic uh
00:05:05
a dot org and then you can download the artist on it as you
00:05:08
would normally with your europe stores and then you're ready to participate
00:05:14
not only what we do or as as as as part of our research work is actually to call the sign
00:05:20
experiences with people who want to work with us by these i mean that we uh discuss the goals
00:05:27
that that the entities would like to achieve we decide the question there's in a way that might might
00:05:32
it might make the the responses clearer so it's it's a little bit of appalling if you want
00:05:37
and after that we essentially provide their they have that would allow to collect this information
00:05:42
so it's it's a very simple you could take pictures collect media
00:05:46
in order to collect as much information as you need yeah
00:05:49
you see 'em will design a graphic user interface
00:05:55
i'm gonna give it to examples that illustrates the the potential use of these applications
00:06:00
the first one as i said is there is a combination a discovery should we do with
00:06:03
the packing sex so that uh i we called up with this on the mound
00:06:07
the idea was ice as i said to let our students
00:06:11
to recover some of the uh um traditions of only about
00:06:15
creatures fantasy creatures and then to do some are great
00:06:19
so students uh use a few days to go or or different places evaluate to take some
00:06:24
of these media and then to re purposes for their creative uh goals these an example
00:06:30
oh what a what a one of these two is in this case law because i have decided to do these are quite gonna uh
00:06:38
an email this another example they can i mean you seem so this is the image of a
00:06:45
the um uh well yeah and then you can see how cities have actually report was the image of
00:06:51
which any trees grass taking into into something uh much more creative you can go to the
00:06:57
first page whisper you can you can see other examples of what students have greater
00:07:03
the second example i wanted to present today was something that we did with the city
00:07:07
of los on last year so perhaps some of you a rate or or or
00:07:12
um so only media that is either the study that ah essentially disclose them quite um
00:07:19
hi statistics over street harassment on the c. d. overalls on
00:07:23
their reputation civic was news actually to run this that
00:07:27
in this particular case we collaborated with the with the observatory of security of the
00:07:31
city of los son wanted to correct this this information and who so value
00:07:36
in a rapid deployment of the questionnaire inequity sign that would allow
00:07:40
them to reach the audience they were interested in interviewing
00:07:43
ah integrate information in a secure way so the the the the same uh application that was
00:07:49
used for example to show with our students was using these case for these uh
00:07:55
for the survey and what is interesting is that by protecting this
00:07:58
evidence or physical sign um was able to also or
00:08:04
justify certain policies that since early two thousand and sixteen seventeen they have been implemented
00:08:13
so the the point that is how could these type of uh about them but perhaps more importantly how good
00:08:20
this type of thinking could support a completed i think what i'm here to advocate for is that um
00:08:27
religion is cities need data because the reckoning for not only phenomena that are happening but also
00:08:33
phenomena that could be happening for instance the uh we've got coming decided to change examples
00:08:39
i think there's still a lot of space to be creative on how to collect data and
00:08:44
also how to engage citizens about collecting data that informs authorities about these phenomena of interest
00:08:52
i'm thinking of two potential ideas one that has been discussed completely
00:08:55
with a with a colleague someone formica villages union right
00:09:00
would be possible to understand what are the mobility needs of certain types of
00:09:06
residence in in um mountain villages specifically people who don't have a car
00:09:12
as we know for for um people of a certain age and also for people who are not yet allow to have a car
00:09:19
when it can be difficult but they were which solutions are found to they
00:09:23
could be very dispersed perhaps this season ready or or or or or
00:09:28
neighbours are really getting organised to to to essentially move people around when they need it
00:09:33
but it's usually not tried it on record meet said hoping that needs our in house the solutions really are constructed today
00:09:39
so we could imagine of uh of using this application to exactly for that process
00:09:44
english exactly the type of people that i could benefit from policy along those
00:09:49
uh dimensions into hasn't to participate contributing data about their whereabouts
00:09:54
a boat for instance for teenagers and uh for others
00:09:59
that's a good idea is essentially to be outlook on many uh
00:10:02
initiative very successful initiatives that are in getting citizens to do
00:10:07
a certain uh participate in activities that benefit mountain villages i'm thinking for instance
00:10:11
of the good work of of some information that uh recovers i
00:10:16
trash from or mountain areas after the ski season
00:10:21
in this case we could also imagine about adding that they're out on top of the scoring parenthesis
00:10:27
to be able to some time document more precisely at the level of
00:10:30
g. p. s. location where the different pieces of trash i found
00:10:34
i get that information to some basic they then only takes you to to be
00:10:39
able to tell stories about the distribution special distribution of these kinds of objects
00:10:45
but also to make people who participate in these um activities to be more aware
00:10:49
actually other values elicited value that they have that they could ah i
00:10:53
can t. v. in data at the same time as far as doing what they don't already which is like the which is going to be marked
00:11:02
so this was a short presentation because i wanted to leave space in case anybody have any questions
00:11:07
we're very open to collaborate and i hope that based on the speech someone
00:11:11
you know who actually follow up and come talk to me inch high
00:11:21
hi
00:11:29
any questions
00:11:35
ah
00:11:39
yeah this is a very important question and technically i would say what you could do in addition to
00:11:46
but you can do for the kids to collect specific sensor data that the but you
00:11:49
cannot collect invisibility that you're interested in collecting at the same time offer participants um
00:11:55
there there are fit bit better because fraser interesting physical activity that
00:12:00
you cannot do that necessarily on on the default feasible up
00:12:04
but there's another side that is not just about the bit about actually the ownership
00:12:09
a freezes in the in the case of low seven perhaps
00:12:13
just a thought that was not the base with collect information these to some degree sensitive in
00:12:17
the people might not be willing to talk about them put directly on the social network
00:12:21
for these type of uh uh data types i different solution
00:12:26
uh maybe maybe a better a better uh approach
00:12:31
but there's also the fact that not everybody suffers book in other everybody's and is not chat so if you wanted
00:12:35
to reach specific target populations that you know are probably not there then you also need a a different channel
00:12:42
so i would i would come make a combination of these different factors to locate for the existence of that from like this
00:12:54
are there any other questions
00:13:01
right and so it's not that
