The August edition of De Ingenieur features an extensive interview of Dr Achilleas Psyllidis about SocialGlass.

The article describes how SocialGlass paves the way for smarter cities, by offering a pioneering toolbox that helps governments, planners, and wider communities harness the power of urban big data to better understand and forecast the dynamics of cities. It further outlines how the system facilitates the combination of insights derived from sources as diverse as social media, sensors, GPS devices, LoRa networks, open data portals, and crowdsourcing campaigns. The article puts emphasis on the various real-life applications of the system in urban contexts, with special focus on crowd management during SAIL 2015 in Amsterdam.
