Open Farming Hackdays 2020

- September 21, 2020 in event, Farming, Hackday

Vom 4. bis 5. September fanden die ersten Open Farming Hackdays am Landwirtschaftlichen Zentrum Liebegg statt.

Elf neue Lösungsansätze

In nur 36 Stunden wurden die folgenden elf neuen Prototypen für die Landwirtschaft von morgen kreiert. Die gesunde Kuh: Früherkennung von Krankheiten zur Reduktion von Medikamenten-Einsatz. Cow Value hilft bei der Entscheidung ob eine Kuh weiter auf dem Hof bleibt oder geschlachtet werden soll. Decision Support Besamung hilft dabei den idealen Zeitpunkt für die Besamung einer Kuh zu finden. DorpAdvisor empfiehlt Parzellengenau die richtige Bewässerungsstrategie um den Wasserverbrauch und den Trockenstress für die Pflanzen zu minimieren. TRIVAtünder ist eine Austauschplattform für Hofdünger Stop Erosion, eine interaktive Karte, zeigt auf wo das Erosionsrisiko besonders hoch ist, damit gezielte Gegenmassnahmen getroffen werde können. Dank Open Source Felddaten können Neophyten erkannt, getaggt und automatisch auf einer Landkarte vermerkt werden. Databndlr vernetzt Konsumentinnen direkt mit den Produzentinnen. Farmpreneur hilft Bäuerinnen für die Zukunft zu planen EVAS erfasst die Auslaufzeit der Kühe Automatisch und reduziert so den Aufwand der Bäuerinnen. Mehr Biodiversität im Ackerbaugebiet zeig auf, wie man ebendiese erreichen könnte.

Begeisterte & engagierte Teilnehmende

Die Teilnehmenden hatten verschiedenste Hintergründe zum Teil ohne landwirtschaftliche Vorkenntnisse: «Motiviert hat mich, dass die zwei Bereiche Landwirtschaft und Hacking eher weit auseinander liegen und dass man daher extrem gut davon profitieren kann, wenn die zwei Bereiche näher zusammen arbeiten. Zudem habe ich keine Ahnung davon wie die Landwirtschaft funktioniert.» meinte einer der Teilnehmenden. Eine Teilnehmerin meinte dazu: «Vom thematischen inspiriert es mich enorm was für Leute hier zusammen kommen. Es ist mein erstes Mal an einem Hackathon und mit dabei sein zu können und sich auszutauschen und zu sehen wie andere Leute arbeiten war sehr spannend.» Markus Gusset, vom Bundesamt für Landwirtschaft, war als Challenge-Owner bei Stop Erosion dabei. 75% der Challenge hätten sie im Team lösen können. Zur Rolle von Open Data für seine Challenge meinte er: «Das war die Herausforderung. Nicht alles was wir brauchten um die Challenge anzugehen konnten wir mit öffentlich zugänglichen Daten lösen. Sogar beim Bund war es schwierig die Daten zur Weiterverarbeitung einzubinden. Du kannst sie nicht einfach weiterverarbeiten. Es gibt offene Daten die man ansehen und beziehen kann, aber man brauch zuerst eine Berechtigung für die Weiterverarbeitung. Das war eine Herausforderung für uns da man die Berechtigungen nicht einfach schnell an einem Wochenende erhalten kann.»

GLAMhack 2020 – an online success

The 6th edition of the Swiss Open Cultural Data Hackathon, carried out as an online event, took place on 5 and 6 June 2020 and gathered people from all over the world! The teams worked on 15 exciting projects, which are shortly summarized here. 1914 in a Timeline puts newspaper articles from 1914 in relation with media contents of today. The historical articles are drawn from two newspapers from the Romandie (French-speaking part of Switzerland) and can be read either in French or German. Culture in Time is an event calendar using existing linked open data (LOD) on productions, venues and dates to feed both contemporary and historical data into a cultural calendar. Europa meets Europe is an artistic project that connects the Jupiter moon Europa with the European continent through the help of APIs: random images from the NASA archive are overlaid pixel by pixel with current webcam images… in rhythm with the Jupiter Symphony by Mozart. Art exhibitions, 1945-2020 visualizes art exhibitions with Switzerland related artists on a map. It allows you to filter by person, by group or solo show or by year. Another type of map is provided by the Swiss Name Chart, displaying the most common family names in a selection of Swiss cities. Another team working with maps focussed on Georeferencing and linking digitized archival Documents. During the GLAMhack, they analyzed ways of georeferencing a historical map showing the network of Swiss postal connections back in 1851. SwissAR is a compass, a cultural signpost, a fun tool to help you orientate yourself when you’re outdoors! This web app uses augmented reality to display relevant information about your surroundings. Interactive Storytelling Across Generations is an educational project which uses old childrens‘ drawings for different kinds of digital learning scenarios. It creates a bridge between generations and encourages children to interact and activate their creativity. MountainHunt and Match with the Mountains are both inspired by images of mountain landscapes in Graubünden provided by the Fundaziun Capauliana for the GLAMhack. While „Mountain Hunt“ invites users to search for the mountain depicted on a painting and replicate the same image, „Match with the Mountains“ is map displaying the districts of Graubünden and giving an overview of the local mountains. One team worked on the creation of a Swiss GLAM inventory, comparing existing lists of heritage institutions and defining a model of collaboration between the Swiss National Library and the umbrella associations for each archives, libraries and museums. Another team analyzed art provenance texts in order to Detect Looted Art. Using red flag names as well as key expressions, the team developed a system to automatically classify and rank art provenance texts according to their „suspiciousness“. Sir Dridbot Glamhacker is a chatbot which was implemented on Slack, the real time collaboration platform used by the participants during the GLAMhack. You can ask Sir Dridbot Glamhacker for film recommendations or for open data sources. One team worked on a prototype for the web application Extra Moenia which connects heritage institutions to the outdoors. The user can indicate preferences such as the topic, the distance or the duration of a tour to receive suggestions for outdoor itineraries. Finally, a team of students in Multimedia Productions at the FHGR Chur gathered video material to produce a #GLAMhack Aftermovie. The film will combine interviews with the participants as well as recordings from the live sessions to document our existing online adventure! Stay tuned for the finished movie!

OpenTrials launch date + Hack Day

- August 25, 2016 in Events, Hackday, Open Trials, opentrials

Exciting news! OpenTrials, a project in which Open Knowledge is developing an open, online database of information about the world’s clinical research trials, will officially launch its beta on Monday 10th October 2016 at the World Health Summit in Berlin. After months of work behind-the-scenes meeting, planning, and developing, we’re all really excited about demoing OpenTrials to the world and announcing how to access and use the site! The launch will take place at the ‘Fostering Open Science in Global Health’ workshop, with OpenTrials being represented by our Community Manager, Ben Meghreblian. The workshop will be a great opportunity to talk about the role of open data, open science, and generally how being open can bring improvements in medicine and beyond!worldhealthsummit_logo As the workshop’s theme is public health emergencies, we’ll also be demoing Ebola Trials Tracker, another OpenTrials project showing how long it takes for the results of Ebola trials to be made available. If you’ll be attending the conference or the workshop, we’d love to meet you – please do get in touch and let us know.

Hack Day

If that wasn’t enough, we also have a confirmed date and location for the OpenTrials Hack Day – it will take place on Saturday 8th October at the German office of Wikimedia in Berlin. We’re inviting people from a range of backgrounds. So, if you’re developer, data scientist, health technologist, open data advocate, or otherwise interested in health, medicine, and clinical trials, come along and learn more about the data that powers OpenTrials, how it’s structured, and how to use our API to search the OpenTrials database or build applications using the data. On the day our technical lead and a domain expert will be on hand to explain the data and facilitate the day – we’re really looking forward to seeing what clever hacks and mini-projects you’ll create. For those of you who have already asked, we’ll be releasing documentation on the OpenTrials API and database soon, but meanwhile if you’re interested in the event you’ll find more details on the OpenTrials Eventbrite page, or you can register quickly below.
OpenTrials is funded by The Laura and John Arnold Foundation and directed by Dr. Ben Goldacre, an internationally known leader on clinical transparency. Contact: opentrials@okfn.org

Code for Ghana Open Data Day 2016

- April 6, 2016 in Hackday, Open Data Day

This blog post was written by Florence Abena Toffa from Code for Ghana.  The International Open Data Day is a gathering of citizens in various cities around the world to write applications, liberate data, create visualizations and publish analysis of  open public data. This year, we partnered with National Information Technology Agency (NITA) to provide us with Ghana’s election datasets for the hackathon.   Code for Ghana’s theme for this year’s event was: Open Data for a free and fair 2016 election. The people of Ghana are going to the polls again this year. Since 1992, Ghana has been among the countries that have had peaceful elections and successful change of governments in Africa. Usually, the atmosphere is unpredictable. Also, elections reportage is often bereft of data analysis and visualisations. The benefit of hindsight provides an enormous opportunity to even predict future events. The goal of the hackathon was to empower the youth to understand election trends and contribute to it through data analysis and visualisations. This will help to understand election issues better.   We had a total of 21 participants and as early as 8 am participants started trickling in, most of whom were software developers, CSOs and data enthusiasts. Among the attendees were two young ladies who exhibited unwavering enthusiasm in open data and data visualization and one guest  came all the way from Togo to attend the event. The hackathon started with a brief introduction to the Code for Ghana election project by Florence Toffa, the project manager. Also, in attendance was the Open Data 233 team led by Raindolf Owusu. They gave a brief presentation on their election project  and how it is aimed at keeping a vigilant eye on the 2016 election proceedings and also to enhance public participation in politics. Participants were introduced to the various open data tools and libraries available to use to analyse election data. They were then divided into teams to brainstorm on election ideas. We had four main projects in total. Below are the various projects that were done. The first group created a web platform displaying data visualizations of results of the 2008 general elections. They focused on the 3 major political parties in the country: NDC, NPP and the CPP. The datasets used were very detailed, covering election results from all the regions in the country – constituency by constituency. At the bottom of the home page, they provided an overall visualization of the 2008 elections. The project is hosted here; Ghana’s 2008 Presidential election results  
  Figure 1 – Results for the greater Accra region The second group also studied the Presidential election results of the NDC and NPP from 2000 – 2012. Their main aim was to discover patterns in order to make predictions in this year’s elections. We asked Abubakar Siddique (the leader) to give us an overview of their project and this is what he had to say: For example NPP have always won the Ashanti and Eastern region, also they have only lost in the Western region and Brong Ahafo once since 2000 (for the years we have studied). Also NDC have never lost in Volta, Northern, Upper East and Upper West regions since 2000 (also for the years we have studied). It is important to emphasize that we did not intentionally decide to study just NDC and NPP, but this was due to the fact that as we were studying to obtain regional victories and after 2000 and 2004 analysis, it quickly became a competition between the two. From our analysis the ruling party has to work super hard to maintain power. Screen Shot 2016-04-06 at 13.20.22

The third group, made up of two ladies, looked at the correlation between rejected ballot papers over the election periods and voter literacy in the country. Based on this analysis, they will predict the occurrence rate of rejected votes in this year’s election. The last group developed an SMS app to check election results. The outcome of the hackathon was great. Code For Ghana will be working with Open Data 233 on their election project. Some of the interesting projects from this hackathon will be integrated into their platform. Two of the projects are still work in progress and as soon as they are finished, we will partner with other organisations to launch these projects. We have also established a good relationship with our Togo attendee who wants to start an open data initiative in his country.  It was a great event and you can get all the pictures here ; Flickr.

Como podemos usar a tecnologia para diminuir o assedio sexual e violência contra as mulheres?

Estupro no Brasil

Fonte: página Quebrando o Tabu.

Diante do cenário gritante de uma sociedade machista, esse artigo é uma chamada para ação. Os números divulgados pelo IPEA em relatório de 2014 são assustadores: 527 mil pessoas são estupradas por ano no Brasil, o que dá aproximadamente uma pessoa por minuto, sendo 89% mulheres e 70% crianças. Temos também relatos chocantes de casos de primeiro assedio relatos nas redes sociais por mulheres de todo Brasil (veja no Twitter a hashtag #primeiroassedio). Mesmo diante desse quadro, ainda temos que ver projetos de lei em nosso congresso como o PL 5069/2013, do deputado Eduardo Cunha, aprovado pela CCJ (Comissão de Constituição e Justiça) esses dias, que criminaliza o uso de substâncias abortivas e obrigas mulheres que sofreram estupro e exige que, para um aborto ser realizado, a vítima é obrigada a fazer exame de corpo de delito e comunicar à autoridade policial. Já temos exemplos onde mulheres estão sendo processadas após denunciarem abuso sexual. “Nos países ibero-americanos, é disseminada a ideia de que mulher mente e recorre à lei para prejudicar o companheiro”, diz Wânia Pasinato, coordenadora de acesso à Justiça da ONU Mulheres. Indepentemente das estultices de alguns erepresentantes do Congresso Nacional, precisamos agir. Recentemente conheci o projeto Chega de Fiu Fiu (chegadefiufiu.com.br), da Think Olga, um Think Tank com o objetivo de aumentar o poder das mulheres por meio do acesso à informação. Recentemente, no Ibirapuera, em  mais uma excelente iniciativa da Olga, assistir o ótimo filme Filha da Índia (India’s Daughter), da diretora Leslee Udwin, onde mostra um caso emblemática da reação da sociedade indiana por causa de um triste caso de estupro e ainda números gritantes sobre a violência contra mulheres ao redor do mundo, até mesmo nos países do norte global, também conhecidos como “desenvolvidos”. Na página do filme há mais informações sobre esses dados e ações, como uma campanha contra violência doméstica para mudar esse quadro.
Lei sobre o aborto por país

Legislação sobre o aborto por país
Azul: Legal. Verde: Ilegal, exceto em caso de estupro/violação, risco à vida da mãe, problemas de saúde física ou mental, fatores socioeconômicos e/ou defeitos no feto. Amarelo: Ilegal, exceto em casos de estupro/violação, risco à vida da mãe, problemas de saúde física ou mental e/ou defeitos no feto. Marrom: Ilegal, exceto em casos de estupro/violação, risco à vida da mãe e/ou problemas de saúde física ou mental. Laranja: Ilegal, exceto em casos de risco à vida da mãe e/ou problemas de saúde física ou mental. Vermelho: Ilegal e sem exceções. Preto: Varia por região. Cinza: Não há informações.

Ações

Eu gostaria de convidar todos os que se sensibilizarem com esse problema a pensarmos o que podemos fazer com o uso da tecnologia para diminuir o assedio sexual e violência contra as mulheres. Algumas ideias simples abaixo, mas se você tiver outras, envie seu comentário!

A) Aplicativo para celular que alimente o Chega de Fiu Fiu

Gostaria de convidar todos meus colegas de comunidades hackativistas (Transparência Hackers, Garoa Hacker, Open Knowledge Brasil, desenvolvedores independentes e outros) a desenvolvermos um apicativo para celular que alimente o site Chega de Fiu Fiu. Atualmente, para uma mulher ou menina relatar um caso de assedio, é necessário preencher uma planilha dentro do próprio site. Já existe o aplicativo Projeta Brasil, desenvolvido pela Ilhasoft de Alagoas, que mapeia diversas instituições para denúncias de casos que violem direitos humanos (violência sexual, trabalho infantil, violência sexual, violência física etc.), facilitando a pessoa achar o endereço e telefone da instituição mais próxima para relatar alguma violação ou ligar diretamente para o Disque 100, Ouvidoria Nacional responsável por receber, examinar e encaminhar as denúncias de violações de direitos humanos. (Temos que entrar em contato com a empresa para pedir a base de dados essas instituições) Recentemente submetemos uma proposta de projeto  para o edital de governo aberto da cidade de São Paulo, análogo ao que proposmo aqui, mas não fomos contemplados. A proposta foi elaborada em parceria entre a Open Knowledge Brasil e a Think Olga (obrigado, Juliana de Faria, Luíse Bello e Isabela Meleiro). Mesmo assim, acredito que podemos juntar esforços e realizar um hackday ou hackatona onde devenvolveremos esse aplicativo cuja necessidade me parece ululante. Hackaday: minha sugestão é aproveitarmos a vinda da Daniela Silva (Open Society Foundations) ao Brasil, no dia 20 de novembro, já que ela está organizando um hackday junto a comunidade Transparência Hackers. Daniela é uma das fundadoras da comunidade Transparência Hackers junto ao Pedro Markun e da RodAda Hacker, que dá oficinas de programação para mulheres, tão excluídas dos meios tecnológicos. Sustentabilidade e financiamento: se devenvolver um aplicativo bacana, precisaremos que este seja sustentável e possamos mantê-lo. Não preciso nem mencionar que esse aplicativo cívico deve ter seu código aberto. Eu acredito que podemos fazer um financiamento coletivo via alguma plataforma voltada para isso (e. g., a Juntos com Você, site de financiamento coletivo para projetos sociais). Mas precisamos antes qual tecnologia vamos usar para o aplicativo e estimarmos os custos para mantê-lo e eventuais customizações. Podemos usar a infraestrutura da Open Knowledge Brasil para manter o projeto. Além do financiamento coletivo, sugestões de potenciais organizações financiadores para esse projeto são bem-vindas! Inspirações: Uma amiga sueca me recomendou dois projetos que usam o SMS para enviar informações geolocalizadas. O SMS-LIfeSavers, projeto que ela coordena e que envia SMS para civis treinados para fazer massagem cardio vascular. E o PulsePoint, que faz algo análogo. Na Argetina também criaram um projeto semelhante ao Chega de Fiu Fiu, o Habla me Bien, mas aparentemente está fora do ar.

B) Melhorarmos páginas na Wikipédia sobre o tema

É sabido que a Wikipedia é uma das maiores fontes de informações do mundo e seu caráter educacional usado por milhões de pessaos no mundo todo, em centenas de línguas. Dia 31 de outubro já está sendo organizada a  terceira editatona (inscrições aqui) da Wikipédia em São Paulo, também organizada pela Olga, onde voluntários se reunirão para capacitar mais mulheres a editar a enciclopédia livre, ainda mais com um abismo de gênero entre os editores da Wikipédia (veja mais sobre isso em Gender gap task force, um projeto da comunidade anglófona da Wikipedia). A iniciativa é ótima e sugiro melhorarmos os seguintes verbetes, alguns ainda inexistentes em português:

C) Parceria com autoridades responsáveis pela segurança pública e das mulheres

Por fim, precisamos após esse mapa de ações das autoridades competentes pelos casos de violações de direitos humanos e segurança dos brasileiros. Esse aplicativo da primeira proposta vai produzir dados sobre a violência e assédio contra as mulheres. Precisamos ver quais são os órgãos governamentais responsáveis por lidar com essas denúncias para facilitar a ação das autoridades competentes. Se alguém tiver sugestões qual seria a melhor forma de iniciarmos esse diálogo, com quem podemos começar o diálogo ou possuem algum contato, deixe nos comentários desse post. Esperamos que esse post seja apenas um ponta pé incial para oragnizarmos iniciativas e ações para diminuir esse grave mal que é o assedio e violência contra mulheres! Se souber de mais algum iniciativa no Brasil e pelo mundo, deixe um comentário!

Hackday sobre violência policial no Rio de Janeiro

- December 10, 2014 in Dados Abertos, Eventos, hackathon, Hackday, PM, Polícia Militar, Rio de Janeiro, segurança pública, Sociedade, sociedade civil, transparência, violência

Apenas no estado do Rio de Janeiro, todo dia pelo menos uma pessoa é morta pela Polícia Militar. No Brasil, diariamente, o Estado tira a vida de centenas de pessoas, em sua maioria jovens, negros e pobres. E, sabemos, quem atira também morre. Para cada quatro vítimas da polícia, um policial foi assassinado em 2013. Neste ano, a média de homicídios bateu recorde histórico, superando países em guerra.

O vandalismo de Estado durante as manifestações ampliou este debate. Porém, apesar da multidão de Claudias, Amarildos e Douglas que aumenta a cada hora, o genocídio oficial tornou-se banal. Em sua maioria ignoradas ou, pior, estimuladas pela grande mídia, os ‘homicídios decorrentes de intervenções policiais’ encontram respaldo em falas como “direitos humanos para humanos direitos”. Para trabalhar os dados existentes sobre essa realidade e pensar em projetos com o uso da tecnologia, será realizado no Rio de Janeiro o “Hackday Violência Policial” nesta quinta-feira, 11 de dezembro, às 18h30, no Olabi, que fica na Rua Barão de Lucena, 85A, Botafogo. A ideia deste hackday é reunir pesquisadores, programadores, jornalistas, ativistas e quaisquer interessados para colocar a mão na massa, destrinchar a lógica do sistema de segurança pública brasileiro e evidenciar a urgência de mudanças. Como podemos produzir juntos ações para estimular a sensibilidade com o tema e o respeito à vida? Quem for participar, por favor, confirme a presença neste evento no Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1553809231523002 Quem quiser enviar ideias sobre informações públicas e bases de dados que podemos utilizar ou outras atividades que podemos fazer no Hackday: https://pad.riseup.net/p/hackdayrio flattr this!
