Usman mostly covered a community oriented view to Big Data Acquisition which he says is very important if citizens and communities are to fully engage with important issues in the world. Key here is the fact that the community can overcome any deficiencies (errors or heterogeneities) by creating their own specific tools.
Usman Haque has worked a lot with interactive environments over the years, founded a web platform for building internet-connected devices, buildings and environments for storing, sharing and discovering of real time sensor, energy and environmental data, known as Pachube, acquired by LogMeln in 2011. Later on, Usman took part in launching COSM.com platform where he was heading up urban projects that dealt with data, sensors and internet of things.
