Our Proposal:

  • Ubiwhere is an SME based in Aveiro and offices in the Pedro Nunes Institute in Coimbra. The main areas of activity are the Internet of the Future and Smart Cities. One of the most effective ways to monitor a city's status, whether it's incident, satisfaction or activity, is to check what citizens write on social networks. In this way, one can have a rather "unfiltered" and "on the ground" vision of what is going on. The problem with this approach is that a large amount of data that can be obtained from a platform such as Twitter, and the disorganized way in which it can get our hands on it, makes it impossible to analyze this data by hand. Therefore, the objective of the stage is to create a service that obtains a data feed of the Twitter platform, relevant to the city in question. From here, it is to implement methods, whether simple filters or more advanced NLP techniques, in order to obtain relevant indicators related to the state of the city. These indicators can range from satisfaction indexes such as rapid incident detection.
