Our first Science Forum Afternoon Session of 2019 explores tensions and innovations at the intersection between two parallel notions of the city – the virtual and the physical. What can digital technologies, from social media feeds through sensoring technologies to simulation programming, tell us about the lived experience of cities? How can we best use these tools to help us design better cities and buildings? Can smart technology lead the way to more people-centered design?
- Mohammed Almahmood, Senior Researcher at Schulze Grassov, who will discuss his post-doctoral research into simulating public life in urban spaces through digital modelling. https://www.schulzeplusgrassov.com/mohammed-al-mahmood
- Natalie Schluter, Associate Professor at ITU Copenhagen, who will discuss her work with computational linguistics and transforming social media data into tools for analyzing experiences of place. https://natschluter.wordpress.com/
