We know what you did last Sónar


We know what you did last Sónar, the collective Big Data experiment driven by Barcelona Supercomputing Center at Sónar+D 2015, unveils its first conclusions.

In 2015, Sónar and Sónar+D became the stage of a collective social experiment using big data generated by the festival audience. A sensor network collected the movement between stages of every person in the audience by using geolocation from their mobile devices. Processing the data, a mapping of music communities and audience behaviour was made with surprising results.
Conclusions of this experiment carried out by Marenostrum, the most advanced supercomputer in Spain and one of the most powerful in Europe, will be presented with an attractive visual representation at the unique showcase of A Taste of Sónar+D by Mazda Rebels. Fernando Cucchietti, scientific visualization group leader at Barcelona Supercomputing Center, will present the methodology used and its results, with a fascinating visual 10-minute presentation.
