SCALABLE AND INCLUSIVE LIVING LABS
How might we automate access to a public digital ecosystem for citizens and machines in order to grow a conscious city?
September 11 – 13
September 11 – 13
Build the admission system that automates access to the public digital ecosystem of the Hague: an independent, open and objective onboarding and networked mechanism, allowing good actors access to grow innovation, nature and civilians’ initiatives in harmony.
In the Hague’s Living Lab in Scheveningen, two urban areas have been equipped with smart city hubs. With 144 use cases and ideas related to livability and business in the neighborhood defined, the Living Lab has proven a huge success. The process for admission should move from manual to automatic to scale.
The process for admission of actors, ideas, use cases and sensors is now manual, which means both a scaling issue and a risk of opinionated, rather than fact-based decisions. We see three roles emerging: the measuring of civil support, a sensor registry and the establishment of public/private partnerships.
The Hague wants to open-source and open access, to scale the Living Lab to the rest of the city, the region and (eventually) the world, voicing the voiceless by introducing new forms of democracy based on transparent data, where anyone and anything can contribute.
Enabling the city and its local stakeholders to automate their admission system for their public digital ecosystem allows millions of actors (man and machine) to get on board, and enables scaling of the Living Lab to a public digital ecosystem that could serve as a blueprint for any city and region.
A WINNING TEAM WILL...
Create a mechanism that automates the onboarding of actors, use cases and sensors which is fully compliant, open-source, scalable and self-organizing in its DNA; the team shows that its specific element of the system is interoperable with those of other teams in the challenge, the track, or the hackathon itself.
Scalability, Collaboration, Self-Organizing.
