Invited Talk at ISU Talks #5

Sven is giving a presentation at the ISU Talks #5 "Future Cities - Urbanism in a digitalizing world" in Braunschweig.


The fast spreading of digital technologies into our daily life is generating inevitable transformations in our society. Digital ubiquity is changing the way we perceive and interact with the urban realm. The digitalization of analysis, planning and design processes creates the opportunity to decode the complex dynamics of current challenges of cities.

An integrative view of the city as a complex and responsive system is fundamental for its sustainable development. Future cities are being shaped at this very moment by means of data production. The translation of data into real knowledge is one of the most important challenges, giving space for integrated, flexible and responsive solutions.

The public event at the Institute for Sustainable Urbanism (ISU), TU Braunschweig, brings together researchers, academics, professionals, experts, industry as well as decision makers of municipalities. The conference seeks to explore the potentials and challenges of digitalization for
urbanism and how it will  shape our cities.
