1000001 Labs @ the Citizen-science data and service infrastructure meeting in Italy

With the growth of citizen science comes the challenge of coordinating people, projects and data. These challenges present a tremendous opportunity: with proper standardization, data can support multiple projects, allowing citizen science to address ever-grander issues and problems. On January 26-27, 2016, the European Commission’s Joint Research Center invited 20 international participants, including members of the […]

Sergi Pons’s PhD thesis defended under 1000001 Labs’ supervision

Sergi Pons presents his thesis on “do-it-yourself instruments and data processing methods for developing marine citizen observatories“. The motivation behind the thesis is related to the need to optimize the monitoring of oceanographic processes. In oceanography, data is not being sampled with the appropriate frequency and spatial resolution. If aliasing occurs, the signal reconstructed from samples is di fferent from the […]

The semantics of citizen science

The Web is a source of rich and varied content. If that content, or at least the important data within it, could be accessible not only to humans but to computers as well, it could then be filtered, grouped, analyzed, and served to citizens in ways humans would be hard-pressed or unable to achieve themselves. […]

Laia Subirats’s PhD thesis defended under 1000001 Labs’ supervision

Laia Subirats presents her thesis on: The motivation behind the thesis is related to the negative impact of neurological diseases on human society.   Objectives of the thesis: To generate an automated translation of Medical Health Records (MHRs) to international standards promoted by the WHO To represent all concepts involved using an ontology To provide […]

1000001 Labs @ Sónar+D with the Musical Tentacle

The “Musical Tentacle” is a project by Citclops, 1000001 Labs, CSIC, Eurecat, and thethings.iO to create sound from and artistically express scientific data used to measure the transparency of the sea water. It uses the KdUINO a low-cost Arduino-based buoy from the Citclops project designed for the monitoring of natural-water quality, which environmental-science grad students […]

Citclops @ the second International Ocean Research conference  (IORC 2014)

Luigi Ceccaroni talks about participatory science to understand the ecological status of surface marine waters at the second International Ocean Research conference  (One Planet One Ocean) taking place in Barcelona, at the CCIB – Barcelona International Convention Centre, on November 16th and 18th, 2014. As with terrestrial life, plankton is a complex “ecosystem” consisting of forms of life […]

1000001 Labs’ Hydroino finalist in “Sensors for Global Development” Fab Award

1000001 Labs’ Hydroino is a prototype of a low-cost, Arduino– and Electric-Imp–based buoy for the monitoring of natural-water quality, which environmental-science grad students and do-it-yourself sea enthusiasts can build. Thanks to the real-time component of the monitoring, the participation of the citizens, the development and implementation in existing low-cost prototypes, Hydroino is offering a unique […]

1000001 Labs @ the Barcelona Science Festival

This weekend, the Barcelona Science Festival takes place at the Ciutadella’s Park, the Fòrum’s bath area (Barcelona) and the Ebro delta, where our team shows buoys made by students from secondary schools within the framework of MARduino and Citclops projects. Do you want to see the final result?  See you there! And learn more (television program in […]
