# Autumn g0v grants kickoff
# jothon welcome
We are about to begin, please take a seat <3
Hello everyone I'm kirby <3
Next we are kicking off this season's g0v grants!
My kid is also 5 years old
This is the first g0v project
Central government budget visualization
Some projects disappeared
We want to help! Hence the g0v grants.
This is the second round of g0v grants.
This is g0v grants team.
Welcome ipa: g0v grants Executive Director
5 years a young lady becomes mom of two kids
g0v grants is a super big "keng"
**No matter what gov does, g0v needs to continue**
g0v grants is about sustaining g0v projects
It's also about the community "supervising" the projects
So everyone please subscribe their github repo
Participate in discussion
Making g0v grants work is difficult
These are our funding partners ------>
Welcome Dr Peng of the WeatherRisk Inc
Why does a weather company support g0v?
Recently typhoons are people's concern
Is there a way to create better forcast with ppl power?
Typhoon forcast with AI?
The weather bureau here always says they're the best
But there are obvious problems
I also said to clkao that my company will open up weather data
In supporting g0v, also growing my company
Here I want to dig a big hole
Can we host a big data event
I invite everyone here to participate
this round of g0v grants is funding six projects
But who decides?
These are the 7 judges
Welcome Ptt founding admin Mr Du
I appreciate this opportunity
Like g0v, Ptt started very grassroot
During Ptt's 22-year history
A lot of other platform died
But Ptt survived
(Ptt is Taiwan's most influencial Bulletin Board System)
I want to offer you some examples here
Also everyone please do not underestimate your project and yourself
1995 founding of Ptt
1997 founding of Yam (a Web portal and search engine)
Then I left Taiwan for the US
Helping to build a human genome database
You can see every major BBS in China originated from Ptt in Taiwan
Right now, Tencend is very big in Taiwan
Back in 1997, they were a very small company who just built QQ
Every big tech company right now started with a very small idea
2006 I joined MS Research
Researching search, big data, AI
2016 MS Research announced its strategy on AI
We think that the future of UX is conversational, chat bot
MS Research started with only 8 ppl
Joining ppl from other department
Finally becomes a company-wide strategy
Now, every company is focused on AI
Taiwan is at the backbone of the development of Information/Data Industry
Open is the only way for efficient [wide-spread] analysis
The data accumulated in the past 2 years is 90% of the data in all human history
What data is needed for the future society?
In Taiwan's context, we have medical data, smart city data
But a lot of the data is not open
We need more ppl to inspect if our city governance is complying the principle of open dataTo
Taiwan's universities are also ranking very high in the world in the field of AI
I hope everyone can get bigger muscles
Last week I participated in a precision medicine panel
We need the spirit of precision medicine in every field in Taiwan
Open data is the prerequisite of precision analysis
We just had a major black out & ppl are asking who are the biggest consumer of electricity?
We have to be careful of pseudo-science
**Civic tech is the precision medicine we need in Taiwan**
These are the six grantees
Some of them doesn't have logos yet (lol)
Now presentations by each project
How can we find the g0v projects?
# Project: YA0H: Yet Another g0v Hub
Hi I am cassi, my proposal is small but important for g0v.
The issues we wish to solve are:
(1) for the newbies of g0v hackthon to easily participate in hackthons
(2) it is difficult to find data
Now presenting prototype
We can view issues and edit meta data of each project on the website
(3) GitHub is better?
**g0v ambassedor** is a facebook page that we are sharing in g0v FB group
We wish that the this project can be introduce the different projects we are doing
What we need to do to make more ppl using the platform that we are developing? We need to collect more users' opinions to design a friendly and pratical project.
What are the shortcomings?
We need to insure more participation
We need to understand the forming of each project
Oh we need to reward the money to the project
[That's one black check right there lol]
So g0v is also about the real world (lol)
# Project: LostSAR-搜救
A tool to find lost ppl in the mountain
I was very surprised to get this grant actually
* find ppl in the mountain
* find ppl to find ppl in the mountain
There are a lot of ppl offering to help to install "beacons" in the mountains
But it's not only beacons
It's beacons + GPS + UAV searching
It doesn't have to be super fancy
18-20min >> 30min >> 40-60min
the battery can be used for 1-2 years
When accidents happen, drones can help us to find ppl
We have tested this solution in the field using ordinary drones we bought
For power consumption
The results: > 100m, decreased labour, long distance searching
We are at the stage of testing
We will give this solution to firefighters or search parties in the future
Join us on Facebook here goo.gl/HJ6A3w
dev, marketing, design, volunteer
Now another black big check <3
# Project: AgriNote - Your helper in the field 阿龜誌—農務紀錄好幫手
- tiny machines and software to help farmers
we are the winner of last time but the project is still going
This is a revolution about using technology in agriculture
A lot of ppl wanted to join, but they did not know how
This time is's AgriNote, helping farmers to document their process
last year: A sensnor in the field
We've build a dashboard for the farmers to view the data
Keys to applying data science for agriculture:
Microweather data, environ data, field record, plant growth recrod.
Last season we did a lot of research
but the farmers have problems using the platform, and the data is not very useful
and the data was not good enough for real, valuable analysis
Next stage we will deploy the sensors at a village
Incentivize the farmers
We cannot just use foreign models
We are working with NTU and other experts
Taking the comments of farmers
work with School of agriculture , NTU,
and other experts
We wiil open-source this model
Please join us on Facebook
* Agri Hacking Day
* Open Hack Farm
**We strive to make data warmer for ppl**
Thank you turtles!
# Project: Taiwan Corporation Holding Relation and Environmental Social Responsibility
by Ling, Green Citizen Alliance, etc
During DingXin group incident, we wanted to know what companies belonged to the group so we can boycutt them
During ETC incident, we also wanted to know what companies to boycutt
That's what we want to help with, to build a tool to show relations between companies and holding corporations
This tool will be useful for all kinds of social issues and activism.
Example as shown ->>>>>
This is an example
The network is more complicate than this.
We are an envornmental activist group
We want to make the holding corporations accountable for all its subsidiaries when it comes to environmental impact
This is our project: Transparent Footsteps
Aim: If I search a compnay in this map, we will find all the other business of the corp
This is an example of the website where we can see all the details of a holding corporation's environmental impact
The data that we are using is very complicated
These are some examples
We are inviting ppl to join us to tidy up the data that we found.
# Project: 享食雲 foodsaving.world
Using P2P to share food, avoid food wasting.
You must know that we waste a lot of food each day
In Germany, we have a website foodsharing.de
So our volunteers can see each day, which restaurants wishes to share their food
Food sharing Taiwan is a three-way cooperation
Provider, foodsaver, the consumer
We have a facebook group <3
Volunteers signing a legal agreement
we started in April of 2016
we have two public fridge
we just build foodsharing.tw
friends in Germany helped
we also have a map of Taiwan mapping foodsharing situations
we are building tools to facilitate foodsharing in Taiwan
We are also looking for cooperating busines and shops
Everything is on github and open-sourced
# Project: Taiwan Watch 美國國會台灣觀測站
A website to observe US congress (from tw)
We are Taiwan Watch
most of the members of this project are in the US
most of us also have experience of lobbying in US Congress
Is the US our ally?
The most common reaction is that the US is using Taiwan as a leverage
but International politics are natually about exchanging interest
do we really know what US Congress is doing about Taiwan?
Congress is where policies are born
Many of our group members have experiences in lobbying in US congress.
Observing Congress is the best way to examine US's Taiwan policy
Now: there are no fast and easy way to get realtime news about US Congress's decisions re: Taiwan
Now: more ppl in Taiwan are participating in politics
we want to lower the language barriers for Taiwanese
born in the US, cares very much about Taiwan & they can VOTE!
##grei#WEa lot of open gov websites in the US, but none of them are of a Taiwanese perspective
Taiwanese Americans can influence US congress decisions with their votes.
We want to put the voice of Taiwanese in US Congress
What to do?
## focus information / topical information re: US Congress & Taiwan-US relations
# Progress Report
# Project AgriNote
We have partiion the project to 3 parts and are progressing. We are interviewing the farmers and collecting their opinions and needs. We will discuss about these farmers' comments and develop from that.
# Project: JsonViewer
I realized that I don't have enough knowledge about open data
I have done some tests and now I would like to demo them
I tested on construction data released by Taipei Gov
I was planning to get geolocation, then get property ID, but that failed
Use of this kit does not affect your ability to use visual elements
# Project: What have Audrey done?
I am working for Au now.
I didn't know what to tell you for this progress report
Au wants the communication with government to be bi-directional.
Now Audrey's office is pushing for setting up "PO" (participation officers) in all central gov offices
Conclusion: information needs to be synced inside & out
# Project: Corporation Registration Assist Tool
We had progress on a corporation info search tool
We are in the process of downloading the info of all companies and tidying up
Let's search for FoxConn
# Project: Amis moedict
This is our team ->
We want a webpage which can speak example sentences
網站右上方有更明顯的設計，告訴大家前往 Android/iOS 下載 app
# Project: itaigi
Hi, i am little grass. this is allen.
This is our Facebook page "itaigi"
We have an event recently called: walking on the street and learn Taiwanese
We found that a lot of written text on the streets written in inappropriate Taiwanese characters.
Ususally the street signs are not written in proper Taiwanese
For example, we had jelly during lunch today, but a vendor wrote it as "alegator oil" which is not properly written
Another example: a sign that says "Grandma can give you her shit"
Please send us photos of these signs, we will make them into cute pics and put them on our fan page.
Now I want to introduce you a popular phrase recently: 師傅 (shifu/seafood)
There are many ways in Taiwanese to say this phrase
We hope you use itaigi.tw to learn Taiwanese
This website can also speak to you in proper Taiwanese
for both individual phrases and a whole sentence
It's not perfect yet, but it's worth referencing

We will keep working on it
# Project: Lee Ming Che
No photos no videos please
No photos no videos please
No photos no videos please
So now I am an NGO player
What should we do as an NGO worker?
Is it about giving ppl knowledge? Knowledge is power.
Now you've recruited 2000+ ppl
Let's write an article to influence the world.
A sudden visit
You are in a dark, humid room
"Do you want to coperate now?"
"What? I didn't do anything wrong!"
This scenario was adapted from a true story
"I am not going to sign anything!"
What can we do?
Waiting for hope
Waiting for friends and family's rescue
My story is published on the web
The story has not been ended at the moment.
It's a 6100+ script and 3 different ending
