Responsive cities are the new frontier in human settlement, engaging residents and prospective citizens from the very beginning in the planning and management of their habitats based on smart city technologies. This is made possible by taking advantage of new and abundant forms of data, new ways of harnessing data sets, new sensing technologies and behavior models, and new possibilities for interaction among people, communities, and their physical environments. How can data help cities create inclusive physical environments for its residents? How do disciplines ranging from complexity science and cognitive psychology to urban design and policymaking converge to address city challenges? This event will engage various speakers from NYC and Singapore—including researchers, city planners, and urban designers—about current initiatives to involve citizens in the design of responsive cities in Asia and the United States.
