How it Works

Page 10: Landers lid2015

API: Application Programming Interface

-A modern way for different programs to exchange information

-It means we don’t have to develop the full stack

-Promotes leverage and collaboration with other software applications

Page 11: Landers lid2015

Something Useful!

How Can We Engage in IoS?

-Don’t wait for Google X

-Get to know our local Universities

-Meet computer scientists and electrical engineers

-Hire brilliant interns to work on hard problems!

Bridging the Gap

-If you’re in this room, you’re an expert at LID

-Computer Scientists will never be Civil Engineers…and vice versa

-Opportunity to leverage a different skill set

-Most students would rather work on real environmental problems

Conferences: The Morning After

That sounds like a lot of work.-Few things worth while are easy

I’ll just do it the same way I always have.-Prone to risk aversion

It’s too fancy, too many moving parts.-Modern, elegant design approaches

Endless Possibilities

-New ways of public engagement: Public displays showing the real-time impact of LID

-Organic analysis (metadata): Let the public provide input through citizen scientists

-Network-level effects: Real-time analysis of the watershed

-Continually driven by ubiquitous sensing
