Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information

CREATED ON MARCH 11, 2016
IN TOKYO

"It's a little bit like Google Street View, it's the same idea ...with radiation."


From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Pieter Franken Presents Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information. In our technologically saturated age, it is hypothetically easy to share data instantaneously with others. After the Tohoku Earthquake, Pieter and what would eventually become the Safecast Team realized that information about the radiation levels couldn’t be spread as it didin’t exist. After connecting to minds, companies, and volunteers – both in Japan and abroad– an open-source system was developed that could quickly collect, record, and share radiation level information.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, March 11, 2016.

Tell Stories Not Data

BY IVOR TYMCHAK
@ VOL 11 ON SEP 29, 2016

In the 1840s Ignaz Semmelweis hit upon the idea of doctors washing their hands before they entered a maternity ward. The resulting fall in the death rate should have sealed his place in history as a pioneer of the scientific method but his inability to weave an emotional story around the data led to his idea being rejected. Countless women died needlessly purely because the doctors prejudices triumphed over the data.

Und was sind weitere Fragen, die zukünftig auf uns zukommen werden?
