IoT, Big Data, Sensors & Cities: Joining Up, Communicating & Trusting 'Smart'
Data is everywhere yet it is far from joined up, coherent or used to make anything truly 'Smart'. The talk explores big data in London, how new visualisations can be used to make sense of data in the city. It examines how 'location' can be used to finally join everything together to help us not only understand the city around us but also our understanding of place and place in a world of sensors and IoT. Finally it looks into the opportunity that is the 'Smart Park' - the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, a park with plans for 10,000's of sensors to provide a glimpse of the future.
