Impressions from the Digital Social Innovation Fair 2017

Rome. February 2017. 500 people. 2 days. One big question: How can we embody a human perspective for the next generation internet?

Together with other projects focused on collective awareness platforms for sustainability and social innovation (CAPS), hackAIR participated in the Digital Social Innovation Fair 2017. Our theme: “Collective Sensing and Action”. Sharing a stage with representatives from STARS4ALL, CAPTOR, MAZI and WATIFY projects, Panagiota Syropoulou from DRAXIS presented the latest news from the project and discussed important challenges in engaging users and handling user-generated information.

We also showed an early prototype of the hackAIR Arduino sensor at the event and showed real-time measurements of the air quality of the venue. Visitors showed great interest to build a hackAIR sensor on their own and monitor air pollution. Potential synergies were discussed with representatives of other CAPS projects, such as CAPTOR and EMPATIA.
