Smart & Resilient Cities

We don't just seek information - we are information

What's it all about?

Emerging technologies and data processing tools are transforming the cities that we live in, and the way we live in them. The progressive adoption of open and shared data systems means that we now live in a world where we don’t just seek information, we are information. But - when it comes to emerging technology in today’s hyper-connected digital landscape- what is our moral progress with how we perceive and treat access to people’s personal information, and how can we be a little bit more human-centred?

The Smart Resilient Cities workshop hosted by the Joint Centre for Disaster Research and Toi Āria: Design for Public Good will explore the human behaviour and emerging technology interface; bringing together tech-industry leaders and showcasing our design-led project.

Participants can join us for nibbles, drinks, and thoughtful discussions generated through a game-based exercise. 

Date: Thursday 23 May 

Time: 5.30pm - 7.30pm
