Abstract

The growing deployment of networked infrastructures has dramatically increased the amount of logs byproducts of people digital activities (i.e., digital footprints). That intangible material takes the form of cellular network activity, aggregated credit card transactions, real-time traffic information, user-generated content, or social network feeds. The capacity to transform this type of big data into insights, products, or services has called for new practices at the crossroad of design and “data science.” This paper will discuss transversal incline of the innovation with digital footprints and will describe how sketching with data offers useful interfaces to the many stakeholders of innovative projects.
