Nous avons le regret de vous annoncer que Katja Schechtner ne pourra pas animer ce séminaire. Ce dernier est donc annulé.
We live in a data rich world. So we are told. We also live in a people rich world – as we can see whenever we step onto the crowded streets of Jakarta, Manila and Bangkok. Expectations are that Big Data & Urban Technologies will leapfrog Asian cities from the slum riddled Middle Ages to livable Smart Cities of the future. In this talk we will explore the current state of play in Asia and analyze future trends in urban transport: from data sets to analytics to policies.
Katja Schechtner holds a dual appointment with MIT Media Lab in Boston, USA and the Asian Development Bank in Manila, Philippines, to create and build cities based on a cultural sensitive use of data and tech. She is also currently Visiting Professor at the University of Applied Arts and the University of Technology in Vienna, Austria. Katja serves as a consultant and advisor to the EU Commission, national governments and global start-ups and venture capital funds and has published widely, including two books on Urban Data and Accountability Technologies. Apart from inventing new technologies and implementing large scale urban projects in Asia, she also exhibits her work at international art and science venues and is frequently invited to give talks. Most recently the Moscow Government hosted a speaking tour about “Data & the City” across Russia and her work « Home is, where your phone is? » was presented at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016. She also served as a curator at Ars Electronica, the Technical Museum and the Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna, the Seoul Biennale for Architecture and Urbanism and VivaManila.
