How to get people to actually use contact tracing apps

Online event

The wait is almost over. On the 1st of September, the Netherlands will launch its own contact tracing app to combat COVID-19. The ‘Coronamelder’ (Corona Reporter) is currently being tested in a beta version in the Twente region. In a few weeks time, all Dutch people will be able to use the Coronamelder. The app is said to play an important role in informing people when they have been directly exposed to someone with COVID-19. But, are people really waiting for this app? Usage is voluntary, however, it is often said that 60% of the population should use the app to ensure effectiveness. Will 60% of the Dutch install an app? What can the government and other stakeholders do to ensure high rates of adoption? Will they teach people how to use the technology or do a marketing campaign? And what lessons can we learn from other countries already using contact-tracing apps? How have their contact-tracing apps been effective? Can their positive results convince people to use the app? In smart city projects, technology is almost never the issue. Success or failure is highly depended on whether people will actually need, use and understand technology. Join the online discussion (Teams) hosted bij Amsterdam Smart City in cooperation with DataLab Amsterdam/OIS, the City of Amsterdam.

We use data to make cities safer, cleaner and, for example, more accessible. But what happens to all the data that is collected? Which choices did people make and why? Do we really need the data in all cases? Which dilemmas can be encountered? Which other considerations play a role? These questions are important for everyone; for governments, residents and companies. Amsterdam Smart City would like to explore with you which decisions are needed for responsible use of data. Data Dilemmas is a collaboration between Amsterdam Smart City and the City of Amsterdam’s Datalab.

Mobile Mapping met LiDAR

Online event

3D data spelen een steeds belangrijker rol in gemeentelijke processen, maar ook bij Amsterdammers en bedrijven. Tegelijk is de Gemeente een belangrijke leverancier van die data. Welke keuzes worden daarbij gemaakt, over welke data gaat het en hoe blijven die data correct en up-to-date? Het gemeentelijke project Mobile Mapping gebruikt naast de unieke verzameling Amsterdamse panoramafoto’s 3D point clouds (LiDAR) als bronnen. Met deze data kunnen allerlei innovatieve toepassingen worden ontwikkeld. Machine learning en AI-software maken het bijvoorbeeld mogelijk objecten in de openbare ruimte zoals lantaarnpalen en bomen geautomatiseerd te herkennen en met een nauwkeurige positiebepaling te registreren. Maar denk ook aan het bouwen van een 3D stadsmodel en het ontwikkelen van slimme kaarten die laten zien bij hoeveel regen het water onze huizen binnenstroomt. Hugo Lases, Dick Plugge en Arjen Deuring van project Mobile Mapping van de Gemeente Amsyterdam praten je deze DemoDonderdagLive online bij. Aan deelnemers wordt gevraagd te bedenken waarvoor zij Mobile Mapping informatie in de toekomst zouden kunnen gebruiken. De sessie wordt gehouden met MSTeams; zie de link hieronder. https://teams.microsoft.com/l/meetup-join/19%3ameeting_NzRhYjhiNGUtYjQ1Ni00ZDAxLThjZTctMjMzNWE0OTQ5MzE3%40thread.v2/0?context=%7b%22Tid%22%3a%2272fca1b1-2c2e-4376-a445-294d80196804%22%2c%22Oid%22%3a%22001f2bc8-154e-4943-9ccc-1791a40ee1b6%22%7d Spelregels - microfoon en camera uit - stel je vragen uitsluitend via de app
