On the first day of the PASS Business Analytics Conference, in his keynote sponsored by Microsoft, professor, architect, and engineer Carlo Ratti discussed Senseable City, the MIT program he directs. From the moment he stepped on stage, Carlo delivered a stimulating keynote featuring projects from Senseable City that examined impact on cities through the collection of open data from Flickr photos, cell phone activity, and credit card usage and data from sensors on air pollution and garbage. Through the building of networks and actuating of our urban infrastructures, Carlo showed the PASS Business Analytics Conference audience the possibilities of where data can take us today, leading to inventions such as the Copenhagen Wheel. Thank you to Prof. Ratti, Senseable Cities, and keynote sponsor, Microsoft, for a great session!
