Program content

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 word, 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, social issues, and other aspects that impact and are affected by the accelerated pace of digitation.

The focus of the course will be on the design of human-technology interfaces, understanding the beliefs we constantly from and update regarding the surrounding, artifacts, and the relationships we create with app, 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.

Accordingly, group project and personal papers will include topics such as:

  • Interface design: Auditory and haptic interfaces; cognitive maps; conflict and coordination in mixed environments; trust building; etc. ·
  • Data formats: Mobility and micro-mobility; traffic lights; planning (BIM); micro-climate condition; engineered nano-materials; human movement; etc.

In addition, we will study the technological and organizational design elements for smart cities:

  • Smart integration: The cyberinfrastructure, technologies and tool used to make the rich set of urban open data available were designed primarily to support the analysis of individual data sets rather than exploring relationships among many data sets. Consequently, urban managers and scientists lack the tools and infrastructure to fully harness urban data in the smart city.
  • Trust building: The ethical implications of increasingly ubiquitous artificial intelligence integrated into personal, home and other devices should be understood in a historical context: the long history of surveillance, and the short history of machine learning. We will examine Al ethics and responsibility, from errors and biases of the machine to the emotional implications in our real-world experience.
