Urenio Watch Watch: Videos on Intelligent Cities

William Mitchell on the City of Future

Big Think, a global forum connecting people and ideas, published a conversation with William J. Mitchell, MIT Professor and Director of the Media Lab’ s Smart Cities Group. Mitchell and the members of the MIT Smart Cities research group are creating innovative ways to change how we live in urban areas through, in part, the application of new technologies that enable urban energy efficiency and sustainability, and enhance opportunity, equity, and cultural creativity.

Media Lab’ s Smart Cities research is particularly concerned with the emerging roles of networked intelligence in fabrication and construction, urban mobility, building design and intelligently responsive operation, and public space. The group explores the new forms and functions of cities in the digital electronic era, and suggests design and planning directions for the future.
