Management Information Systems Professor Youngjin Yoo named one of the "Smartest People in Philadelphia"

Management Information Systems Professor Youngjin Yoo, director of the Temple Center for Design+Innovation and co-principal investigator on the university's Urban Apps & Maps Studios, is one of 52 "bold minds" featured on Philadelphia Magazine's list of The Smartest People in Philadelphia. Urban Apps & Maps aims to have Temple students and faculty work with community members — particularly high-schoolers, whom Yoo hopes will grow into “civic digital entrepreneurs” — to create data sets and apps addressing real city needs. One favorite thus far, focused on urban farming, comes complete with temperature and soil-moisture sensors to help the user find good spots for growing.
