It is interesting to study data analytics and the way that rural communities might use it, and we took the chance to engage some local people in talking about life and data. Anyway, to cut a long story short we wrote a paper based on those experiences grasped during the Tiree TechWave event.
If you are interested in this topic, our paper will shortly be available on ACM digital library:
