About

The unprecedented growth of population in cities over the last decades makes the smartification of cities an urgent topic, mutually embedding software development and urban planning. In a new economy of platforms which are ubiquitous, pervasive and subsidized, the digital is augmented in the physical world, from transportation to social interaction, pollution and food, stress and speed. While smart ecosystems co-evolve and turn urban life into digital life, we will emphasize the integration of urban data from different sources, and try to better frame and understand the human condition – considering economy, ecology, societal issues, and other aspects that impact and are affected by the accelerated pace of digitation.

The focus of our summer 2020 program will be on the design of human-technology interfaces, understanding the beliefs we constantly form and update regarding the surrounding artifacts, and the relationships we create with apps, bots, machines, and with other people. Pedestrian cognition, for example, is extremely affected by new modes of sensation, perception, behavioral intentions and actual behaviors. How will the endless bulks of interactions we experience in the city affect future behavioral patterns? The appropriation of the smart city by the citizens is a major component of urban-tech utilization.
