Redesigning Urban Inventions: City As A Service
 will inform and raise awareness about situated design opportunities for improving urban lives with computing technology. 

In 2008, the United Nations reported that more than half the global population of approximately 6.7 billion people were living in cities. The increasing human density in urban areas has resulted in more frequent use of public urban services or products and more interactions with urban infrastructure. 

Join us in re-envisioning the City as a Service to alleviate the issues of mass global urbanisation, and explore the important role of embedded technologies and intelligent infrastructure in shaping our lives and cities in the future.

A live demo session will showcase current work in the field, while expert talks and a discussion panel will inspire audiences to look at cities from a novel and innovative perspective.

This event is ideal for academic researchers, industry professionals, students and anyone interested in 'Smart Cities', media architecture, interaction design and public art.

This event is presented, and will be facilitated by, Dr. Luke Hespanhol and Steven Bai.
