Cities are incredibly vibrant centers of innovation, education, employment and commerce. They are the heart of the modern global economy and as such they continue to attract rural migrants seeking a better quality of life for themselves and their families. Today, more than half of the world population lives in urban areas, and each week, the urban population increases globally by 1.3 million.
Themes of this week long conference will include the transition to an:
- Economically competitive urban future
- Sustainable and resilient urban future
- Socially and economically equitable urban society
- Digitally supported urban futures
Charlie Catlett will present on "Beyond Instrumenting Cities: Embedding Computation, Learning, and Vision in the Built Environment".
