What is the gist of our discussion on cities and technology?
In our finest vision of the City in 2050, urbanites could lift off with thrusters; autonomous vehicles, smart infrastructure and instant global medical-data-sharing would be routine in every corner of the City.
We all yearn for a technological utopia, however, it is vital to ponder on how to pave the way to that wonderland. Therefore, we have invited guests from three generations, 1970s, 80s and 90s, to explore the driving forces behind the evolution of cities and technology from their unique and insightful perspectives.
