Systens builder and researcher. Here to talk about “voice your view”
Starts with looking at the riots clean up. How technology can reach new people. How can tech be used to include more people. Imagein you are walking and think wow I think that town square. But you dont want to write to the council. You can feed this back to people.
Built the ViewKi platform which takes interaction from smart phones, sms and social media to tag comments, and categories, so you can see a visualisation about an area. Can see lots of different visualisations on many different topics, and comments.
Trial, the refurb of a local library. To see what local people thought of the refurb. Put a “telephone” around the library. Pick up and speak into it. This does speech to text to give a real time buzz and summary of the new library.
Then take a school class around manchester and let them comment on a phone app so that people are able to get a visual of current thoughts and feelings about places. Rather than interview people, this allows an open ended discussion on a place or area.
Not just for complaining. More positive comments were published, than by using tradition methods.
great talk. Very interesting here again
