Description

The Themes & Insights Workshop, Saturday, 18 June, is designed to give you an introduction to the themes and challenges (below) of the HDB Cool Ideas Hack (24 to 26 June), and explore different avenues of possibility in strengthening community bonds and creating a caring, supportive society in our built environment.

The workshop and hackathon will centre around the following challenges:

  • Foster neighbourly ties: How can we leverage innovative technologies to enable, amplify and celebrate neighbourliness? How does neighbourliness in a ‘Sharing Economy’ work?

  • Connect residents to the news they want: What tools can be adopted to make better use of available information and update residents on local news, needs and activities? What new data sources, like sensors in a “smart estate”, can we tap into?
  • Make HDB living greener: How can we equip residents with knowledge on best practices and a better understanding of our environmental impact? How can technology, like Internet of Things, help monitor these practices and provide insights on how well we’re doing?

Also, don't forget to check out the Community Design Workshop, for an ideation exercise based on human-centric design to help you start thinking about your idea, and the Tech & Data Workshop, to explore the technologies and datasets available to you for this hackathon.
