Vicente Guallart: Future of Self-Sufficient Cities

Vicente Guallart - Lecturer

Topic: Future of Self-Sufficient Cities

With the ricing of the global temperature, the growing demand for urban spaces and the fast development of new technologies, the next few years we are facing an era unprecedented in the history of mankind. How to design cities that can, at the time, improve the quality of life of its inhabitants and contribute to reverse climate change?

Nadezhda Khort - Lecturer

Topic: Future of Urban Learning

With the accelerated development of new technologies and the growing global interconnectivity, the development of long-term projects becomes increasingly unpredictable. What are the major challenges that the design of cities will face in the future for which we are not yet ready?

Vadim Smakhtin - Lecturer

Urban Data: Limits of Control

Each city has a digital trace. And the more it is, the better we understand and manage the city. For example, data analysis of mobile operators have shown that 2/3 of Moscow residents do not leave their district or home in the first half of the day. So, it is in many ways a myth that Muscovites are constantly moving.

But where is the boundary between control and total control? And who owns the information about the citizens?

Benito Juarez - Lecturer

Topic: Future of Technologies for Architecture

The development of digital technologies such as robotics, 3D printing, AI, Internet of things, etc., is transforming the processes of design, manufacture and construction of buildings in the world. What are the possibilities and limitations of these new technologies?

Egor Kotov - Lecturer

Topic: Future of Smart Cities and Artificial Intelligence

Cities are increasingly becoming digital. With technologies such as IOT, Big Data and AI, we have increased our ability to take data and process it. How can Artificial Intelligence respond to the big questions of today's cities, such as traffic, pollution, water and energy supply, etc.?
