PART 2 - Utopias and places of the future. Smart Cities, Big Data and connected technology

 

Davide Livermore and Carlo Ratti, Director of the MIT’s SENSEable City Lab in Boston, analyze digital space and highlight how a mindful use of technology may help improve our lives. Virtual space is flexible by definition and somehow more sustainable, just to make an example. Imagine, though, taking a coffee break on a video conference at our own PC. Would our senses keep their original function in the digital space? Lots of tests have been made in various circumstances, but maybe technology is not enough.
