UCLA Department of Statistics Speakers Series: Programmable Cities

Tue, 11/2/2010
3:00 PM—4:00 PM,
2258A Franz Hall

Assaf Biderman, SENSEable City Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

In this talk, the possible implications of this new condition will be explored through a sample of projects by the SENSEable City Lab: digital traces of cellular networks shed light on human mobility patterns and allow urban systems to respond to demand in real-time, miniaturized location tags highlight the global flows of trash, and hybrid electric bicycles with environmental sensors address a city’s pollution and traffic problems.
