How will data and technology affect not only urban infrastructure but also our urban experience?

The growing potential of technology in cities is allowing for the development of so-called smart cities. Think things like traffic flow optimization or continuous monitoring of air quality.

We want to know, though, what transformations will cities themselves undergo as things evolve? What will happen to public space as we know it today? During this seminar, six experts explain how they see cities changing from their domain. It appears that this transformation goes far beyond what people might have expected. You won't want to miss their insights!
