City of Bits, Bytes, and People
Friday, October 7, 2011, 3–5 pm
Digital devices and networks are merging with our physical environment, allowing us to capture information in real time, process it, and communicate it back to our cities. The citizen is at the center of this new urban condition: empowered by digital technologies, our capacity to make smarter decisions and to contribute to the place we live in is greatly enhanced.
The MIT SENSEable City Lab has been exploring this momentous change in projects with cities around the world. Assaf Biderman, associate director of the MIT SENSEable City Lab, will take us on a journey through the lab’s view of the future city, followed by a discussion.
