What started as a failed high school workshop has become a major opportunity for data collection in Chicago. The city is preparing for the launch of its transparent Array of Things initiative, where 200 nodes containing multiple sensors to monitor an array of factors – from weather and air quality to mobility – deployed over the next year. The publicly available data will be invaluable for researchers, and is even expected to boost interest of these issues among the public. With so much new material available, what would you do with this data?
