Esri (actually Amber Case) at Le Web

Cyborg anthropologist: We can all be superhuman - interview with CNN

For instance, you should always be able to get information based on when you need it. Location plays a big role in that. Right now, data is stuck on the web, not where you are. When you land at the airport, you often have to look through your email to get to the information you need in order to get to your destination. It should already be there on your phone.

The problem with the internet of things is that data is stuck online [LeWeb]- coverage of her talk at Le Web

Case works with Esri, a next generation location platform that uses its GIS (geographic information systems) mapping software to help people understand and visualize data to make decisions based on the best information. ...

Case says one of the biggest problems with the internet of things (the theme for this year’s LeWeb Paris) is that data is stuck on the internet. She emphasises that it is important to release all that data into reality.

By pulling all that data into reality, users are able to further personalise their lives which leads to a “quantified self” that allows them to map specific datasets.
