Smart Cities, Buildings, Homes, Infrastructure - Subhro Guhathakurta, Pardis Pishdad-Bozorgi, Jon Sanford, Dennis Shelden, Perry Yang
From Katie Gentilello
Smart cities, buildings, homes, and infrastructure are all emerging as critical themes for the 21st-century built environment.
These developments all have in common the integration of distributed sensors, coupled with real-time virtual simulation, and closed loop digital interventions into the built environment.
College of Design faculty are working across widely varying scales from the city to the chip to conceive of and realize the next generation of digitally mediated built environments.This forum will present College research spanning from smart cities to smart buildings, virtual and augmented reality, and the internet of things. It will be followed by an open forum to explore opportunities for further collaboration by faculty and students in this wide area of emerging technology.
