Moscow today is one of the world’s leading urban centres in terms of its infrastructural development. In 2018, the city joined the Top-25 cities for infrastructure, ranking 19th among such centres as Buenos Aires, Dubai, Milan, Sydney, Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, London, and Seoul. Moscow is undergoing through many wide-scale transformations, involving innovative construction solutions, adapting spacing options and infrastructure for changing requirements, whether they are economic, environmental, technological, social or cultural.

Megacities of the Future is a series of webinars presented by the HSE University’s faculty on the following topics:

  • urban space layout;
  • developing «smart cities»;
  • using AI in urban planning;
  • new engineering solutions for «smart cities»;
  • what projects can be entrusted to robots;
  • the «Internet of Things» — a key part of the future megacity;
  • how data science can be used to shape the future;
  • IT as a construction instrument;
  • current urban design trends;
  • management in science, technology, and innovation;
  • accuracy of mathematical calculations in urban planning.
