Solving the data deluge: new cartography for commuting in Barcelona

How can we take advantage of the data deluge and increase efficiency in cities using data? The current technological framework allow us to manage large amounts of existing data and use them for multiple purposes. One of the biggest issues in cities is the commuting flow management. We have used mobile phones data from over 300,000 cellphone users living in Barcelona, duly aggregated and anonymised, provided the basis for a new map of commuting patterns in the city. Specifically, the study uses data collected and processed by Movistar through its Smart Steps platform, following patterns of behaviour in order to identify and characterise the place of residence and main destination (work or study) of every user and map commuter flows among the 73 districts that make up the city.

  • Unsupervised learning to uncover advanced cyber attacks Aug 22 2017 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Rafael San Miguel Carrasco, Senior Specialist, British Telecom EMEA
    This case study is framed in a multinational company with 300k+ employees, present in 100+ countries, that is adding one extra layer of security based on big data analytics capabilities, in order to provide net-new value to their ongoing SOC-related investments.

    Having billions of events being generated on a weekly basis, real-time monitoring must be complemented with deep analysis to hunt targeted and advanced attacks.

    By leveraging a cloud-based Spark cluster, ElasticSearch, R, Scala and PowerBI, a security analytics platform based on anomaly detection is being progressively implemented.

    Anomalies are spotted by applying well-known analytics techniques, from data transformation and mining to clustering, graph analysis, topic modeling, classification and dimensionality reduction.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage: Programming & Networking Had a Baby Jul 6 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, J Metz, Cisco, Alex McDonald, NetApp, Dror Goldenberg, Mellanox
    In this, the sixth entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into some of the nitties and the gritties of storage details that are often assumed.

    When looking at data from the lens of an application, host, or operating system, it’s easy to forget that there are several layers of abstraction underneath before the actual placement of data occurs. In this webcast we are going to scratch beyond the first layer to understand some of the basic taxonomies of these layers.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Storage APIs and POSIX
    •Block, File, and Object storage
    •Byte Addressable and Logical Block Addressing
    •Log Structures and Journaling Systems

    It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.

    Join us on July 6th for this session. We look forward to seeing you there!
  • Visualizing Smart Cities: How Data Visualization can help shape our communities Jun 23 2017 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Andy Kriebel, Head Coach at The Data School, Tableau Zen Master & Eva Murray, Tableau Evangelist at EXASOL, Tableau Trainer
    Whenever there is data, there is the chance to visualize it and gain valuable insights that can drive change and improvements. Governments have realized the potential that data holds for transforming our towns, cities, living spaces and communities to better address the needs of our modern society.

    Governments may want to change public transport services to suit commuters who move away from city centers due to increasing living costs, or develop programs that deliver more support services to areas showing high incidences of mental illnesses, or simply monitor bike traffic to assess the necessity of additional cycle lanes and bike share programs in our capitals. Data and data visualization can help us identify the needs of our communities and can support us in addressing them effectively.

    In this webinar Andy and Eva will present examples of Government using data visualization to improve services for communities and will share how you can get involved through analyzing open data and becoming part of the wider 'dataviz' community.
  • How to get data moving: Impact of big data on transportation Jun 23 2017 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Arwen Smit, Head of Marketing, dovu
    Moving from A-B is slowly being revolutionised through data. Car-sharing and ride-hailing are just the beginning. Thousands of connected devices are currently monitoring data points, and although stand-alone analysis can be useful, true innovation occurs when these data sets are combined to transform into something new.

    In the near future, IoT data explosion and the API revolution will collide to change city planning, urban movement and the role of the car in the 21st century.

    First off, we set out to understand what big data means in the context of transportation, answering questions such as what is it, where is it coming from, and what can you do with it.
    - Next, we'll zoom out and apply these learning to transport innovation in a wider context, considering how it will influence concepts such as urban movement, social mobility, and quality of life.
    - Finally, we'll discuss the relationship between open data and innovation.
  • Interpreting IoT Data: Context is Everything Jun 23 2017 8:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Dr. Boris Adryan, Head of IoT & Data Analytics, Zühlke Engineering GmbH
    For decades “things” have been connected to the Internet. Embedded in carefully planned end-to-end solutions, the what and why of the data arising from these devices has often been hard-coded. In other words, in the M2M world, it is usually clear from the outset what is going to happen with the data. In a future IoT, this won’t necessarily be the case. In a world full of connected devices, the meaning and the potential of the device data is only going to become clear in the context where it is needed in.

    But how can software tell that your connected thermometer is useful for a medical application, or that a car in the drive way is likely an indicator of your partner’s presence? This is where device catalogues, information models and ontologies come in handy.

    While the talk is not specifically tailored towards a smart city focus, it should become clear how these technologies can be useful in such environment.

  • Toward Internet of Everything: Architectures, Standards, & Interoperability Jun 21 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ram D. Sriram, Chief of the Software and Systems Division, IT Lab at National Institute of Standards and Technology
    In this talk, Ram will provide a unified framework for Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Smart Networked Systems and Societies, and then discuss the role of ontologies for interoperability.

    The Internet, which has spanned several networks in a wide variety of domains, is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives. These networks are currently being extended to have significant sensing capabilities, with the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). With additional control, we are entering the era of Cyber-physical Systems (CPS). In the near future, the networks will go beyond physically linked computers to include multimodal-information from biological, cognitive, semantic, and social networks.

    This paradigm shift will involve symbiotic networks of people (social networks), smart devices, and smartphones or mobile personal computing and communication devices that will form smart net-centric systems and societies (SNSS) or Internet of Everything. These devices – and the network -- will be constantly sensing, monitoring, interpreting, and controlling the environment.

    A key technical challenge for realizing SNSS/IoE is that the network consists of things (both devices & humans) which are heterogeneous, yet need to be interoperable. In other words, devices and people need to interoperate in a seamless manner. This requires the development of standard terminologies (or ontologies) which capture the meaning and relations of objects and events. Creating and testing such terminologies will aid in effective recognition and reaction in a network-centric situation awareness environment.

    Before joining the Software and Systems Division (his current position), Ram was the leader of the Design and Process group in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division, Manufacturing Engineering Lab, where he conducted research on standards for interoperability of computer-aided design systems.

    We are observing a monumental effort from the industry and academia to make everything connected. Naturally, to understand the needs of these connected things, we need a better understanding of humans and where, when, and how they interact. This behavioural understanding would help us to create digital services and capabilities that fundamentally change the way we experience our lives.

    In this talk, I will explore the system and algorithmic challenges in modelling human behaviour. I will discuss how mobile and wearable devices together with the wireless network can be used as a multi-sensory computational platform to learn and infer human behaviour and to design user-centred connected services across Enterprise, Urban City and Lifestyle.

    Dr Fahim Kawsar leads the Internet of Things research at Bell Labs and holds a Design United Professorship at TU Delft. His current research explores novel algorithms and system design techniques to build transformative multi-sensory systems for disruptive mobile, wearable and IoT services. He borrows tenets from Social Psychology, learns from Behavioural Economics and applies Computer Science methods to drive his research. He is a frequent keynote, panel and tutorial speaker, hold 15+ patents, organised and chaired numerous conferences, (co-)authored 100+ publications and had projects commissioned. He is a former Microsoft Research Fellow and has worked before at Nokia Research, and Lancaster University. His work and publications can be viewed at http://www.fahim-kawsar.net.
