Conversations with employees and volunteers at the Proctor Creek Stewardship Council in Atlanta, GA revealed that contamination in urban creeks is a major problem. This is especially an issue when neighborhoods sit along sections of the creek that get contaminated and dumped in. Most often, this happens in lower-income neighborhoods where many residents are unaware of trash/recycling guidelines, the local government doesn't feel accountable for the residents, and local businesses view the area as grounds for dumping.
Heart Sense takes biometric data from participants and produces captivating visualizations as their bodies react to visual stimuli.
The Content Aggregation System for Election Observation (CASE) will aggregate real-time election observation data from formal observer missions and social media sources. Our new system, combining the power of crowdsourced data from social media with the precision of formal observers in the field, will create a first-ever fully integrated monitoring system. Simple technical interfaces will allow users to share particular information in real-time while still maintaining necessary data security and privacy.
