Description

For centuries, cities have accommodated the movement of people – walking, riding, cycling or driving – according to human behaviours and rules. Are our cities ready for the technology-driven new era, or is a radical new approach needed in how we plan, build and manage our urban environments?
Join our panel of experts as they share their thoughts on the future of cities in the age of AI, and consider what immediate lessons might be learned from any societal and behavioural changes imposed by COVID-19.
