Details

Another meetup with a diverse range of topics in the technological and digital space!

• peaceinformaticslab.org (http://www.peaceinformaticslab.org): Can data be a driver for sustainable development, humanitarian response or even peace and justice? Within the Peace Informatics Lab (Centre for Innovation, Leiden University) we develop data-driven solutions for positive change. Thomas Baar will share some of the projects, we have been working on.

• cwi.nl (http://www.cwi.nl): Hannes Mühleisen from the Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam will dive into his "research project" in which he grabbed open wifi signals from the Dutch trains to understand what people do when they stare at their phones in the trains. The ensuing publication in de Correspondent caused a big stir in (social) media.

• floodtags.com (http://www.floodtags.com): can you analyze and understand emergency crises such as floods using tweets? Jurjen Wagemaker will enlighten us with the challenges and the opportunities of filtering and analyzing tweets.
