DCX 2017 | Dreams for Future Cities from David Ross
How can we not be inspired by dreams of flying cars, floating cities, teleportation beams and wayback machines? At the same time, we have been haunted by nightmare scenarios of technology gone awry, of robot domination, dystopias, and SkyNet. Now, as technology increasingly gains sentience through artificial intelligence—with capacities to understand, learn, and predict—we look to smart devices and systems to increase productivity, lifespans, and happiness. In this talk David Rose author of Enchanted Objects, and Researcher at the MIT Media Lab will explore the emerging world of AI and Internet of Things through provocative examples for how we might live differently in future cities.
