IN THE LEFT CORNER: IN THE RIGHT CORNER:
Cities are broke. Using technologies to
automate and optimize our city systems
makes good financial sense.
We have entered the “measured era” the
more technology we use, the more we can
measure and the more we can adapt to
our findings and make better decisions.
New technologies connect us to our
interests, our surroundings and other
people like never before.
We are on the verge of a new architectural
language: buildings can build themselves,
spaces can speak back, and information
can integrated into our surroundings, when
and where we need it.
Optimization and efficiency is fine, but
what about civil liberties? Do I want to be
tracked and recorded?
Not everyone has access to the same
tools and devices. When we make
decisions based on data, we are missing
out on a representative voice.
Where did serendipity go? Should I only
be making connections if it is mediated
A Minority Report world could suck. If
technology will be integrated into our
surroundings, we must get the user
experience design right.
