We are part of the 'TechniCity'. The increasing availability of
networks, sensors and mobile technologies allows for new approaches to
address the challenges that our cities face. The way we understand cities
is undergoing sweeping transformation, right along with the analytical
tools we use to design our cities and the communication tools we use to
engage people. Absorbing, studying and understanding the role of technology
from a critical viewpoint allows us to generate creative ideas for improving
This course begins by examining how our cities are changing. We then jump into how technology is used to engage with the public to support decision-making. Students will be examining tools for analyzing the city. Then we move into exploring the infrastructure that makes the real-time, technologically-enhanced city possible. And rounding out the course is an exploration of entrepreneurial urbanism, looking at how creativity can spawn technological innovation. You'll hear from technological innovators and thought leaders about all of these topics. You can learn more as this course develops on Dr. Evans-Cowley’s blog
Week One - Infrastructure for the TechniCity
You'll learn how sensors and networks are transforming our cities.
Week Two - Engaging the TechniCity
Through social networking and crowdsourcing platforms you'll learn how to engage in city building.
Week Three - Analyzing the TechniCity
From sentiment analysis to mashups, you'll experiment with analyzing data.
Week Four - Entrepreneurial Urbanism
You'll explore how open data initiatives, hack-a-thons, and urban prototyping festivals are creatively innovating our cities.
We live in real-time, technologically enhanced cities.
Explore the sweeping changes that our cities are undergoing as a result of networks, sensors, and communication technology.
