Street Smarts + Smart Cities: a conversation about urban life and data science
New technologies can renew our capacity to envision and pursue more sustainable, vibrant, and democratic cities. At the same time, many of our current challenges result from unintended consequences of innovations once hailed as solutions. This event aims to address how urbanists today should make sense of the potentials and limits of computational approaches. Instead of prepared remarks, two panelists will respond to questions pre-submitted by the audience at registration.
HMUI Urban Conversations aim to pair visiting scholars with Harvard faculty or graduate students as respondents. Our goal is to create a space for scholars to share works-in-progress with an interdisciplinary community of urbanists.
