Join us on 14 & 15 December, at Het Nieuwe Instituut, for the annual ThingsCon event powered by CLICKNL. This year’s theme: ‘Un/ntended Consequences’, explores and promotes the development of fair, responsible, and human-centric technologies for the IoT and beyond.

The Human Values for Smarter Cities research team will contribute to the program with the following activities: 

[Workshop] 𝗥𝗲𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘂𝗻𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗱/𝘂𝗻𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗲𝘅𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗦𝗺𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝗖𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗧𝗲𝗰𝗵𝗻𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗴𝗶𝗲𝘀
In this workshop we will look at unwanted consequences, based on two existing urban technologies: a parking scan car service and an online reporting platform for local issues. We will use a canvas and our imagination to work on recommendations to repair the existing systems and/ or structures where these consequences originated. Hosted by Mike de Kreek

This experiment created by Tessa Steenkamp, questions what does the camera car in your city see, that you can’t see? Come explore the journey its data travel, and how they are used. Which functions do you think are a good idea – and where do you think is the limit?
