Explosive innovation and adoption of computing, mobile devices, and rich sources of data are changing the cities in which we live, work, and play. How we as physical beings connect with, interpret and shape the increase of data residing in our environment will be a significant challenge.
The UrbanIxD Summer School will explore our relationship with data in the Networked City of the near future. The approach will focus on human interactions and how these might change and develop and thereby impact on the development of cities.
The UrbanIxD Summer School will be grounded in the emerging discipline of urban interaction design. The Summer School will address the domain of technologically augmented, data-rich urban environments, with a particular emphasis on human activities, experiences and behaviours.
