IFTF Foresight Talks: How to Use Foresight to Build Responsible Smart Cities that Align with Our Values
Across the world, as people move to urban centers, more places are investing in smart city technologies. A smart city uses sensors to collect data that is ultimately meant to serve the interests of its residents, but what are the values city administrators and technology experts are putting at the center of their decisions as they build our smart city infrastructures? Join us on Thursday, July 28 at 9am PDT for a conversation with Rod Falcon, IFTF Program Director, and Julieta Matos Castaño, researcher at the DesignLab of the University of Twente in the Netherlands, for a conversation about how we can use futures thinking to stimulate ethical reflection on smart cities. Julieta will share and demonstrate the "Future Frictions" web experience, which is a simulation she and her colleagues built using foresight methodology to provoke important debate about the future of smart cities and their social impacts. To experience "Future Frictions" and find more information about the project and its collaborators, visit www.responsiblecities.nl.
