Megatrends wie Urbanisierung und Klimawandel bestimmen die Zukunft der Städte, in denen 2050 laut OECD zwei Drittel der Weltbevölkerung leben werden. Gefragt sind intelligente und nachhaltige Lösungen. Welche Städte nehmen bereits heute eine Vorreiterrolle ein?

Vortragende

Senior Vice President for Research and Dean, Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, University of Rochester; Director, Minerals Technologies Incorporated; Rochester Abstract
Cities have long served as representations of our culture and are experienced through participation. Access to the internet and the emergence of social networks provide alternative ways to experience that culture in layers that blend reality with virtual experiences. Through data science, we now have alternative methods of viewing and describing a city or community in real time. An example based upon research at the University of Rochester will be provided as a basis for the discussion.
Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP), New York University; Former Senior Vice President, IBM Corporation, New York Abstract
In this talk I will discuss how Cities are transforming themselves into centers of knowledge and innovation. Examples will be given from New York City and from the NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP).
