Friday math movie: Carlo Ratti Architecture that senses and responds
[27 Jan 2012]
Carlo Ratti’s TED talk explains how we can use sensing data to improve our living environment.
From the TED summary:
With his team at SENSEable City Lab, MIT’s Carlo Ratti makes cool things by sensing the data we create. He pulls from passive data sets — like the calls we make, the garbage we throw away — to create surprising visualizations of city life. And he and his team create dazzling interactive environments from moving water and flying light, powered by simple gestures caught through sensors.
There are some interesting data visualizations here, too.
