Join Trafiklab for an evening at Commutathon!

Welcome to a meetup with Trafiklab on Commutathon, a hackathon, with the aim of developing concepts to facilitate the daily commuting for Stockholmers with mobile services. The Hackathon is arranged by Swedish Radio along with OpenLab, Trafik Stockholm, Stockholm and Trafiklab. You can read more about it here! The hack will be held on OpenLab on 10 to 12 June and Trafiklab will run a meetup on 10 June.

We have a terrible good agenda – more on that coming soon at Traffic Labs blog. (Psst! Among other things, Ellen Sundh invite us in the sensor world and tell us how we can combine the data collected with the physical machines and discover the unpredictability of APIs and data around us).

During the evening you will meet other developers and APIs owners who would like to hear about what you’ve done with data from Trafiklab. We offer something light to eat and drink during the evening.

Have you developed something cruel based on Traffic Lab data you want to show off or talk about? Send an email to linnea.bjorkman@samtrafiken.se and tell us!

Limited seats. First come first served! sign up here! (in Swedish)

See you!

HACKING CULTURAL DIVERSITY

EAT MEET WORK PLAY is a hackathon to harness the exciting cultural diversity and open data in Sweden today.

EAT MEET WORK PLAY is all about action – focusing on four distinct areas of life that directly affect us all.

Why EAT MEET WORK PLAY?
These are core parts of our lives, of our society, of what it means to be alive. Each team will take one of the themes and come up with new ways to use open data to create a positive impact on society and people’s lives.

Restaurants and Wikidata: A recipe for success

Wikidata tastydata

Date Thursday, June 4th 10:00am – June 7th 5:00pm
Location Kungsträdgården, Jussi Björlings allé 5, 103 91 Stockholm, Sweden
Price Free (Part of “Smaka på Stockholm”)
Official site Projekt:Restauranger och Wikidata 2015/Ansökan till Vinnova om öppen mat
(in Swedish)


Vis større kort
We want to show restaurants and the food interested public what possibilities Wikidata creates through multilingual menus by displaying touchscreens that the public can use to choose language on the different menus at the event Smaka på Stockholm (4-7 June). The idea is that the participating restaurants share their menus, which create a direct use of the work done during the project. To be present at an unexpected place, and in a fun way show what can be done with open data, is a way to create interest about Open Data in groups that previously haven’t shown interested.

We will contact all exhibitors to get their menus in due time. Before Smaka på Stockholm we will arrange a competition where the international Wikimedia community are invited to create translations and take images on ingredients and dishes (so that the menus can get illustrated) and record pronunciations. This material will be available freely licensed on Wikidata. We will create an interactive menu where guests can see the dishes and what they contain, in their own language. A prototype is already created. With further development and more translations of the open data we have, we can visualize and show the possibilities for the public.

Nordic Open Data Week: Forum Open Data #7 – Vinnova #nodw15

Vinnova

On Friday the 20th of February VINNOVA will be hosting an un-formal meeting to discuss and plan Nordic Open Data Week 2015.

The idea is to have a Nordic Open Data Week from the 29th of May to the 7th of June, and that the week will be filled with many different activities in the Nordic countries.

After the event you can join the Open Data Day Afterwork event.

All the Nordic countires are involved. The purpose of the week is to create manifestations of what open data is, and to show what value they have.

It can be ’makers’ that build gadgets that are connected to some data, artists that create installations, data journalists and people doing information graphics, musicians that create sounds based on real time information, cities that visualise environmental data in the public space, etc.

Other questions that you want on the agenda whould be communicated to the host ahead of time.

A very basic webcast is being planned ((cell phone + bambuser).

Venue TBA.
