As we are currently in a partial lockdown, we are strongly advised to limit our physical interactions. We feel a responsibility to help contain and mitigate the spread of COVID19, based on government guidelines. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the official launch of the Responsible Sensor Lab and opening of 'Senses of Amsterdam' until January.

Senses of Amsterdam

In 'Sense of Amsterdam' you can discover how sensors make Amsterdam a Smarter city. This interactive installation at NEMO Studio is about the sensors we use in our city. What measurements are taken and how is data collected? The installation informs about the sensors in Amsterdam and how these sensors make the city smarter. You will be challenged to think along with them, and how we can make their use more 'responsible'.

The installation is a collaboration of AMS Institute, City of Amsterdam and NEMO, and is part of the program Responsible Sensing Lab.

Responsible Sensing Lab

This lab explores how to integrate social values in the design of sensing systems in public space. It is a testbed for conducting rigorous, transparent, and replicable research on how smart technologies placed in public space can be designed in a way that makes the digital city ‘responsible’. The Responsible Sensing Lab (RSL) is a collaboration of AMS Institute and the Digital City program of the City of Amsterdam. More information here.

Responsible Urban Digitization

Technologies like smart sensors can help solve urban challenges. But when collecting data, what public values are involved? Our Responsible Sensor Lab explores how to integrate social values in the design of sensing systems in public space.


Can tech make scan cars more human?

Responsible Urban Digitization

Exploring new tech, such as scan cars, helps to understand the complexity of Responsible Urban Digitization.
