Master Talk by CARLO RATTI: LIVEABLE SMART CITY
4:30 TO 6:15PM
The way we live, work and play is very different today as the world becomes more interconnected. As the Internet enters the traditional domain of design and architecture, it is opening the door to a new wave of smart applications that can enhance city liveability.
