"It remains to be seen if we'll rise to this challenge. I'm optimistic, but there's so much more we need to do. We're good at developing new technologies...are we as good at the society-scale change we need?"
- SFI/@MIT Prof Jessika Trancik on @voxdotcom:

@MIT @voxdotcom "If you're purchasing a #CleanEnergy technology, you're creating a market that then drives more #innovation, so everybody can contribute. It DOES also mean that we can't find #SilverBullets. We can't find one really smart person to solve this. We need everyone to contribute."
@MIT @voxdotcom "The way we can get larger projects to improve more quickly is #standardization. We need to understand the parts that are holding projects back, where the inefficiencies come in. I use a broad definition of #technology because these #inefficiencies crop up in different ways."

Let’s talk about incentives and how they are driving real world performance on @Helium #ThePeoplesNetwork. A thread:
1/ A few days ago, I was explaining to my 15y/o brother about how @Helium created a self-optimizing global #IoT network. It all starts with incentives...
2/ At the time, I happened to be driving over to set-up a hotspot with a former colleague that worked on the network design team at my old company, one of the leading global players in industrial #IoT. It got me thinking...

We love our #STEAM friends 😍 Discover the #Roobopoli initiative handled by @Perlatecnica and @_Bluenet_ 👏and aiming to create an educational experience in the field of #SmartCities

#STEAM #education #creativity #programming Image
Roobopoli is a tiny smart city, a miniature city, where the life of the inhabitants called Roobo, is assisted by modern #technologies, the same available in real cities, but reproduced in scale for educational, testing and simulation purposes 🏙️
As part of the Roobopoli project, one of the main activities consists in the construction and programming of #smart #vehicles called Roobokart, which will have to move independently on the roads of Roobopoli 🚘

La #5G, ce n'est pas une technologie disruptive.

La 5G, ce n'est pas un immense plan commercial visant à nous contraindre à renouveler nos appareils électroniques.

En fait, pour tout vous dire, la 5G ce n'est pas pour nous, humbles consommateurs.
Commençons par faire un point sur les G.

It is a new tool box. A way to apply new thinking to the problems of contemporary life. What are we DOING when we change something in a system like #energy #transport #housing or #food?

We are changing a system which makes us free. Free to cook, clean, move and shelter.
So it is never just #energy #energytransition work we are doing. We are not just trying to hit #netzero we are intervening in peoples lives and #capabilities

These freedoms are part of a contract between individuls, society and institutions.

Already happening most everywhere ;cashless society will be able to control, track every transaction, allowing authorities to build an even more complete picture of who you are to stop any possible disobedience or revolution before it happens. The future will never be the same.
We are staring in the face of a totally new fascist type of authoritarian state. Anyone who disagrees is immediately called a “conspiracy nut” because they will never debate the issues — they simply prefer to attack the messenger.

"I say chiller_1, you say chiller_a."

Every building data model is different & unique for building models

Harry Bergmann @eeregov
#smartcities #smartbuilding
#SummerStudy20 @ACEEEdc
There are different ways that technicians describe behaviors - making the communications difficult.

Standard naming conventions? No. More like give a class heirarchy that can be adapted to different sources of equipment.
Unique naming is a human problem, but results from diversity of buildings, retrofits, and management

& can also inhibit optimal Building Information Models (BIMs)

Building as batteries for a flexible energy grid
Hao Huang @BuildingsAlive
#SummerStudy20 #smartbuildings
By collecting data from chillers, cooling towers, water pumps, and return air fans, #building System engineers and designers can anticipate regions for increasing load in non-peak energy periods
Increasing load of chillers in off-peak hours can quite literally save costs & build demand for renewable energy. Plus, this can help electric grids adapt loads as renewable energy sources fluctuate

Some quick thoughts:
US construction is male & white; leading to systemic & intergenerational siphoning of contracts, social relationships & $$$$

Diversity & anti-racist policies need to implemented in bidding & contractors

Canada's #5G rollout

"A larger number of connected devices will result in huge increases in data that need to be stored in energy-intensive #data centres, which are expected to emit more #carbon than the international #aviation industry."

#Climate

"It also means an exponential increase in the # of wireless networks, which are energy-guzzlers (est. to be 10x less efficient than wired networks). In 2015 alone, the energy used to power wireless networks generated approx. 30 megatonnes of carbon, the same as 4.9 million cars."
"There are no published long-term studies... As one US Senator put it, w/ #5G, “we’re kind of flying blind here, as far as #health & #safety is concerned.” For this reason, 273 #scientists & #doctors in the EU have signed a declaration calling for all 5G [] to be stopped."

I can't help but wonder if we're seeing a speeded-up #digital equivalent of the #Disneyfication of #TimesSquare.

While @AlphabetINC's @sidewalklabs & others obsess on '#SmartCities', maybe the intersection of the web's '#PublicSquares' and #commerce works the other way too?

Thread.

No longer is it necessary to pay attention to my 2019-2020 ramblings/warnings of a global economic reset. Instead, as of June 3, 2020, you can now hear it directly from the source: the World Economic Forum (#WEF).

The #COVID19 is the the global transformational reset button for the fourth industrial revolution sought by those World Economic Forum et al. We witness a global consolidation of power, inclusive of UN & WHO as the 4IR rolls out. Data & nature: the post2020 coveted class assets.
#WEF: "We partner w/ governments, leading companies, civil society, & experts from around the world to co-design & pilot innovative new approaches to policy & governance in the Fourth Industrial Revolution."

On March 26 2020 the Club of Rome published an open letter: Call to Action from the Planetary Emergency Partnership*: Emerging from the Planetary Emergency and partnering between People and Nature"

clubofrome.org/impact-hubs/cl…
"#Covid19 has shown us that overnight transformational change is possible. A different world, a different economy is suddenly dawning."

The transformational change consists of a multi-pronged global transformation. The finalization of nature (#NewDealForNature) & reboot to #4IR.
First signatories to the open letter include Christiana Figueres, Sandrine Dixson (Co-President of The Club of Rome) Kate Raworth, Johan Rockström (#CI), & Hunter Lovins.

Pune Smart City in collaboration with Pune Municipal Corporation has developed an integrated data dashboard to fight against the global pandemic of coronavirus.

#SmartCities #CitiesFightCorona ImageImage
Integrated Command & Control System (ICCC) dashboard is being used for monitoring the quarantine facilities & tracking the health of suspected patients on a daily basis. GIS based analytical tools, heat-mapping technologies & predictive analytics are being used. ImageImage
Further, the healthcare operations at the city’s Naidu Infectious Disease Hospital are also being tracked from this facility.
It is very nice to see that technological solutions are being widely used across all cities in the country to track & curb #COVID19 from spreading. ImageImage
