Smart cities & emerging technologies: Cutting through the noise – NXT BLD London, June 2018
Dipa Joshi talked about how city spaces and their uses were changing with working practices and generational changes and how architects needed to address this in design thinking. It isn’t just the building design but also the space in-between buildings that needs to be considered.
Joshi looked at how the use IoT data collected from ‘smart cities’ helps better inform urban designers. For instance in China, AI has been used to better understand its inhabitant’s preferences building a ‘City Brain’ and used to reduce traffic, accidents and crime.
