DIGITAL TOWN HALL: Co-Creating #SmartLondon – @SmartCitizenKit in @Digi_Town and #SmartCity

3D Metrics: Measuring 3D Realities on 2D Screens

Digital Town Hall: Co-Creating a Smart Londontook place on Tuesday, 13 June 2017, in the historic Town Hall of Bethnal Green that has become a hotel and event venue.

The meeting was organised by Robert Monster, CEO of Digital Town who calls himself an ‘enlightened capitalist’ and introduced IoP as the Internet of … PEOPLE!

To my delight, I also saw a slide on Public Private PEOPLE Partnerships!

The list of speakers was most impressive, starting with the keynote given by

  • SIMON ANHOLT– an independent policy advisor to 52 governments! Here he is at TED. He spoke simply beautifully:

We are one species and we meet each other. It’s about re-connecting the people who were split.

A Smart Cities Network is Globalisation 2.0 – beyond corporations and politics, based on fairness, enlightened self-interest and life on earth not as a sprint, but a team sport.

Nanosurfaces 2017 @IoM3 – an elite of ‘specialised generalists’ @nanotechnology @nanomagazine @nanowerk

3D Metrics: Measuring 3D Realities on 2D Screens

Nanosurfaces 2017 – the first of hopefully an annual event – created by Dr Martin Kemp, founder of xcience.co.uk and Chair of the Institute of Materials where the event was held.

The very convincing and compelling keynote was given by Stephen Coulson as his success story with pi2.com – Perform, Protect, Improve – to develop water repellant coating for electronics and hearing aids.

The complete programme of speakers is published here. I showed these five slides in five minutes in the afternoon, demonstrating Mona Lisa opening her eyes for this elite audience as an apparently unforgettable event. I now need to look for ‘end users’, I’m told.

I noted here particularly those who I thought would benefit from using our method to re-visualise images in True Colour 3D – the tool with which ‘domain experts’:-

Smart data: towards a social change enlightenment

On the same wave length as myself as Renaissance Woman!

Philosophy for change

Three hundred years ago, the spread of science and liberal revolution inspired thinkers to claim that society was on the brink of an enlightened era. Today, as new data-driven technologies exponentially increase our ability to understand social problems, new strategies engaging the heart and the head boost the impact of social change programs, and tested techniques for evaluating impact reduce the cost of programs and ensure that funding flows in the right directions, there is reason to believe that we are nearing a new socio-technical threshold.

As David Bornstein claims, we are riding the verge of a social change enlightenment.

We can see it in the way that we are tackling social problems. For decades, social reformers labored under a vision of human beings as self-maximizing rational agents, a vision developed in the first enlightenment and perpetuated in the field of economics. Today, as Bornstein claims, we’re seeing the death…
