Smart.Map has been developed on behalf of Expo 2015 S.p.A. and in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan, within the two-year project Alta Scuola Politecnica. It is based on using technology as a proactive system to implement the meaning of a territory and to build and strengthen connections among local actors, physical places,
citizens and tourists. The objective is the enhancement of the main characters of a specific city and its metropolitan area, through thematic itineraries and the creation of a network of local businesses under a common brand. This provides an immersive, customized, interactive and social experience of the urban environment, as well as a usercontext direct interaction. Smart.Map has an inclusive approach towards all the major actors of the considered territory (PA, possibily existing agricultural districts, the major producers of agro-food products, local associations, tourists and citizens), towards whom it interacts through a smartphone app and a web platform providing dynamic customized itineraries with gps navigation, e-commerce services and real-time data management.

IL FESTIVAL DELLA SCIENZA
BY MANUELA ARATA
@ VOL 10
ON OCT 31, 2014
Laboratori, conferenze, mostre e spettacoli hanno risvegliato anche quest’anno la passione per la scienza e la solita, travolgente, voglia di imparare. Come con la conferenza sul Bosone di Higgs che ha attirato una folla da stadio, o con la lezione di meccanica quantistica che si è addirittura dovuta trasferire in piazza Matteotti con il pubblico sulla scalinata di Palazzo Ducale. Quest'anno il Paese ospite è stato la Francia, ma sono venute in visita anche delegazioni da Cina, Giappone, Turchia e Russia. Grazie
all'appoggio e alla collaborazione dell'Ambasciata di Francia in Italia e del Ministero dell’Istruzione Superiore e della Ricerca, il Festival ha ospitato alcuni dei testimoni delle migliori realtà scientifiche e imprenditoriali d'oltralpe. A partire dall’inaugurazione con Serge Haroche, premio Nobel per la fisica e direttore del Collège de France.
Politics, Policy and Pollution Masks: Anecdotes from the Streets of New Delhi
BY PRAACHI KUMAR
@ POLICY SOLUTIONS TO CLIMATE CHANGE CHALLENGES
ON APR 19, 2017
In the winter of 2015, the condition of air pollution in Delhi was described as ‘severe’. PM 2.5 was 16 times the safe limit. The smog taking over the most polluted city in the world was hazardous to human health. The state and central governments, with contrasting policy narratives and intentions, were able to effectively engage its citizens to help mitigate the problem.
So Praachi Kumar asks: How can policy nudge non-state actors to become mutually accountable for transformative change?

"It takes a village."
Sometimes rules are meant to be broken. We abandoned the rule book for this free-form, "20x20 ish" team presentation, Champions for Change, at PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19. Elizabeth Walsh, Professor at the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, shared her mic with a team of members of the Champion for Change program.

Breaking Silos, Nudging Communities: the SITE4Society adventure
BY SHYAMA RAMANI
@ VOL 36
ON JUN 19, 2018
Shyama Ramani is Professorial Fellow at the research institute United Nations University-MERIT in Maastricht. Her research focuses on the relationships between technology, innovation and their governance for inclusive development. She is also the founder of two non-profit research units ‘Association Un Ami’ and ‘Friend in Need Trust’, in France and India.
Shyama experiences three kinds of knowledge divides today: that between students and scholars in good institutions and the not-so-good ones, that between academics and society and that between truth and fabricated truth.
In her PechaKucha presentation she shows how academics can contribute to societal welfare just through sharing the results of their research in an understandable way.

One of the speakers at the last event was Alexander Ryzhkov — head of the «November» and the project «Vyhodnoj», which highlights the fresh and up to date information about events and places in Dnipropetrovsk. He talked about owners of different cafes or restaurants that face with problems connected with POS terminals, because they are quite expensive and inconvenient. Alexander and his team offer a great solution — POS terminal based on the iPad. Intuitive, user-friendly and with very affordable price, it simplifies the work of the waiters, which saves both their time and the time of visitors.

Mike Moore of Tres Bird Workshop, talks about his approach to architecture and design through making and inventing: a process that allows him to fail and continually improve on his work.

Call for Speakers
Malden Pechakucha Nights seeks speakers for our next Pechakucha Session to take place late March - date to be determined. The theme for this session is "FUSION" broadly interpreted. We are looking for presentations that present examples of fusion, “the process or result of joining two or more things together to form a single entity”, in various fields and disciplines. Talks can explore any number of disciplines that present the formation of a new concept, happening, culture, artform, initiative, etc that emerges out of the coming together of two or more influences – essentially giving birth to something new. We also welcome talks on the fusion refering to, “the process that powers the sun and the stars. It is the reaction in which two atoms of hydrogen combine together, or fuse, to form an atom of helium. In the process some of the mass of the hydrogen is converted into energy.” If you are interested in presenting in Malden, email Ose at email@example.com with your pitch, a paragraph or so describing the topic and the types of images you would use. Date for this session will be forthcoming - most probably late March on a Thursday evening.
