Phytics: Physical Analytics

Established: February 18, 2013

The goal of the Physical Analytics project, or Phytics, is to perform analytics on the physical actions of users. Such analytics would be valuable in a variety of contexts where the design of a physical space is intertwined with how users use the space, e.g., to understand the behaviour of shoppers in mall or a store, which might be indicative of their interests; to fine-tune the layout of services in an airport or a train…

Green Spaces

Established: July 1, 2010

Connecting the Next Billion Users to the Broadband Internet. The number of broadband Internet subscribers in India in July 2015 is only 113 million, or less than 10% of India’s population. To extend the availability of broadband Internet to the next billion users, Indian government is deploying the National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN), laying over a million miles of fiber optic cables. However, NOFN will still not reach the 600,000 villages, each of which can…
