Join us on Wednesday 13th November as we discuss Being Human in a Smart City.

With sensors on streets, vehicles, houses and carried by people on mobile devices, our cities are becoming one big information interface. Smart cities of the future will transform lives in urban settings by collecting and using this data to inform and improve day to day life. From transport efficiency, energy use, security monitoring, crime deterrence, infrastructure planning, to resource and waste management and recycling. 

But how we should use data to improve our urban lives remains an open question, in particular, because envisioned systems potentially require people to give up data, autonomy and even privacy for the perceived good.

Our keynote speaker Professor Margot Brereton from Queensland University of Technology will consider the future of smart cities from the dual perspectives of engineering and human interaction.
She will draw upon essential considerations around energy use as well as the social experience of cities, navigating a path towards designing with both in mind.

Key Points
•    Smart Transport/Autonomous Vehicles
•    The social experience of Smart cities
•    Environmental Design

During the evening, Professor Brereton will be joined by members of the Smart Cities Research Institute Team for a panel discussion followed by a Q&A session.
