Designing for Data Tools that Talk to Sensors and Talk to People

Ellis Neder

45 min. talk
Exploring the challenges encountered when visualising data collected from both sensors and devices, but also from people. How do we combine and visualise these two potentially quite different forms of information?

Data
Big data
Visualisation
Smart cities
Architecture
Sustainability

Today more and more data is collected autonomously from sensors in buildings, on our smartphones, and on our wrists. Yet, some data still comes from people who give us qualitative and quantitative feedback that augments what the sensors tell us. What are the challenges of combining and visualising these two types of data?

In this presentation, Ellis will explore the benefits and trade-offs of designing data tools that talk to sensors and talk to people at the same time. He’ll discuss a recent project for The U.S. Green Building Council called the LEED Dynamic Plaque that collects data from building meters and combines it with qualitative data gathered from building occupants. He’ll talk about the UX challenges of visualising these two data types and how they can be used to make buildings more efficient and our cities greener.

Session takeaways:

  • How can we design feedback loops into our data tools that encourage people to upload accurate data?
  • What data visualisation techniques can we use when we combine data that comes from people and from autonomous sensors?

Privacy as Default – Concept for Privacy of the Internet of Things
Lutz Schmitt
If the new Internet of Things really is everywhere and if it doesn’t come with a switch to shut it off, then what does this mean for privacy? And who should be taking responsibility for this?
