Responsive Cities are the new frontier in human settlement. Responsive Cities engage residents and prospective citizens from the very beginning in the planning and management of their habitat, based on Smart City technologies. This is made possible by taking advantage of new and abundant forms of data, new ways of exploiting data sets, new sensing technologies, and new possibilities for interaction among people, communities and their physical environments.
Fabien Clavier will present some on-going research projects led at ETH Zurich’s Future Cities Laboratory in Singapore. Researchers at the Future Cities Laboratory use technological advances to help citizens, communities and authorities understand the functioning of cities and the consequences of different planning options. By systematically exploring the practical potential of responsive cities, the researchers aim at providing answers to questions regarding the impact on society while offering design solutions for sustainable future cities.
