MyHeartMap Challenge: Using a crowdsourced app to help saving lives

A group of Penn Medicine researchers Led by Dr. Raina Merchant, an emergency physician and resuscitation expert, is launching a crowdsourcing contest this Fall that will use a smartphone app to plot the locations of Philadelphia's public automated external defibrillators (AED) which are used to restore cardiac arrest victims' hearts to their normal rhythm.

The MyHeartMap Challenge a great idea among a growing trend toward using crowdsourcing to find solutions to troubling problems in health care, are inviting people to use app to tag the photos with location information and details about the device like its color and manufacturer.

The Penn contest aims to catalog those devices and build an app using the database of AED locations which will link to a person's GPS coordinates and help them locate the nearest AED during an emergency. There's an estimated one million AEDs across the nation, hung clearly on the walls in airports and casinos, but also tucked away in restaurant closets and under the cash register in coffee shop.

The Crowd’s Many ‘Voices’

As with most great ideas, the vision for Voices was developed at a kitchen table and mapped out on serviettes in coffee shops. In the earliest days of our business partnership, I composed music and recorded bands while my wife Stephanie was a recording artist who also performed as a soloist at weddings and taught singing lessons.?

After building a website for our audio production services and achieving high search engine rankings in Google, a number of freelance voice talent contacted us to see if they could be listed on our website to gain work opportunities. As more and more ‘voices’ were listed, we began to see how our company could provide services to talent who were looking for ways to promote themselves and apply for jobs.


While recording was something that we were good at, it didn't take long for us to realize that we were on the verge of a great opportunity that could change our lives forever. Stephanie and I wanted to find the best way possible to do what we loved while helping others to succeed. Both of us were ready to step back from recording and let others step in. If we could live out our dreams while positively impacting the lives of others — thereby helping them to live out their dreams and support their families — we would be successful no matter what.

Geocentric Crowdsourcing. Or how to put the hands-on the city
Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

Tom Erickson, designer and researcher in the Social Computing Group  at IBM's Watson Labs in New York, believes in crowdsourcing as a force capable to bring to citizens the ability to change the landscape of their cities and effectively create a more intelligent and livable environment. In his paper Geocentric Crowdsourcing and Smarter Cities: Enabling Urban Intelligence in Cities and Regions, Mr. Erickson explores the application of crowdsourcing to cities and regions – what he called “geocentric crowdsourcing.”

In his opinion, rather than people as passive subjects of increasingly ‘smart’ systems developed by tech companies, the vision is that smarter cities can offer a variety of ways for humans to act as first class participants, contributing their abilities to sense, analyze and act. Mr. Erickson focuses his research on designing systems that enable groups of people to interact coherently and productively: originally focused on online systems, the scope of his work has expanded to include real world environments ranging from rooms to cities.

Responding to some questions from Crowdsourcing.org, Mr. Erickson explained the concept of Geocentric Crowdsourcing and his practical application to the cities.
