• SmartOakland December Meetup at Civic Design Lab

    City of Oakland - City Hall

    Our monthly Smart City Meetup has converged to include elements of Resilient Oakland initiatives and their new Oakland Civic Design Lab, the evolution of the SmartOakland.net crowd-sourced Smart City Challenge effort into a non-profit called SmartOakland (www.smartoakland.org), and about a year turning ideas about addressing lead poisoning with IoT and smart data into a Public Data Utility offered via SmartOakland.org to address our most pressing issues and opportunities that come with daily life in Oakland. We are now delivering critical health intervention data services using data from the past, present, and future so Oaklanders and service providers can take action and intervene to prevent childhood lead poisoning from happening, real-time. We will all be better prepared to make on-the-spot decisions when faced with risks and opportunities we could not see before. Join us to see how our platform works and to weigh in on additional uses and applications for Oakland and other cities. We'll update Meetup topics as we get closer to the date and look forward to seeing you at the next one. This Meetup is open to the public. Bring your friends!

    Details Our Smart City data utility is being developed to feature real-life challenges people in urban environments face. We focus on the intersections of housing, health, the environment, and issues of equity that impact so many people it makes sense to crowd-source data, requirements, and solutions as a network of consumers and contributors. We're inviting people in the media, healthcare, housing, environmental justice, equity, public services, business, non-profits, faith-based organizations, schools, and technology to join our efforts to use data to identify risks then turn them into opportunities to deliver fast, reliable, business services for folks who have immediate needs to attend to. We've chosen to begin our baseline data for the city of Oakland, around the physical locations where people spend downtime, specifically, in and around their homes and neighborhoods. We want to create a foundation of real-time data, not from the census, where we collectively figure out how safe we and our neighbors are in our immediate surroundings. This means starting with the interior and exterior of our homes, apartments, and living setups. Once we are safe in these immediate surroundings we can look a little further out in rings away from where we sleep, eat, and recharge to engage communities, neighborhoods, and our city overall. In Oakland, 80% of the housing stock is over 40 years old. Like all things, housing wears out and breaks down over time and some older housing materials are now known to be hazardous which is why we're starting by identifying housing built before 1978 as locations that should be checked for safety issues. One particular hazard that is invisible and is creating a lot of health problems for Oaklanders, (and people in every other American city,) is lead paint that was used in housing built before 1978. People who are exposed to lead paint poison at some point in their lives experience: Aggression, anemia, Alzheimer's Disease, Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, brain damage, cancer, Dementia, hearing impairment, heart attacks, high blood pressure, infertility, IQ loss, kidney failure, low educational attainment, personality disorders, premature death, special education requirements, speech impairments, and violent criminal behavior. The red dots on our 7 district housing maps identify housing built before 1978 that should be tested for lead paint - assume it is there if there is no scientific test certifying it is not. Pregnant mothers and children 6 years of age and younger should also get their blood tested to check for lead poisoning as soon as possible. We are launching this effort to alert the public of our collective housing, health, and environment risk from lead poisoning so everyone can start checking things out and taking care of the risk for themselves and their communities. There is a process you follow to test a home, your family, and to get lead out of your house, soil, and air. We are conducting these monthly meetings so we can discuss how to use this data to know where to test and to go through the follow on steps in groups as everyone is different but the process will still be similar for everyone. So we're creating a community or User Group of folks who will all figure steps out together. Depending on whether you're a tenant or landlord and your income level, you may qualify for a range of funding and service options to help resolve housing and health issues. Recent lawsuit settlements will be available to some homeowners with homes built before 1951 and this is the group that will help figure out some of those logistic details. Please spread the word and involve everyone you can so we can tackle large challenges as a network using data, tech, and human networks to the best of our shared abilities.

These demos will cover a quick overview of how to use the GPS maps on your computer and phones and how to request new addresses to be added to your District subscriptions and to request new insight maps like health outcomes, education outcomes, and financial outcomes associated with housing types.
