Big Data Sheltering

In this mobile communication era we are emitting massive amounts of information in real time without even fully realizing it. If such information were collected and analyzed, it could be reprocessed into other forms of data such as our consumption tendencies, or where we like spending our time. The reprocessed data could be used to better understand ourselves and reflect deep on our lives by interacting with oneself. Using this data spilling from our mobile devices, we could try to find ways to more effectively welcome these new members to our society. 

At the very moment, many refugees are escaping from their homelands every day due to war, disaster, persecution or famine, heading for other countries and dreaming of a better life there, but the refugee camp, which is the standard system of receiving refugees, by temporarily “isolating” them, lowers the possibility of their social integration into the local community where they are settling. This system, taken straight from the “general (refugee resettlement) manual” furthermore ignores the specific needs of individual refugees.    

It is necessary for us, as we do in our daily lives in the age of information, to collect the data spill that reflects the tendencies of each individual refugee. For this to happen, they must be able to live in the context of the existing society without being isolated. 

The “Refugee Resettlement through Data Mining Program,” using the mobile devices’ location services, collects and analyzes over a certain period of time the data about refugees’ daily lives in real time in their new urban environment and facilitates from up close encounters between them and their new society. Through data mining using a similar algorithm to those of online dating sites, a matchmaking service is provided between each individual refugee and the local community that would suit him or her best, so that they can resettle into the social community more easily and effectively.
