RE.WORK Cities will explore how technology and science are changing our cities

On 13 December, speakers from MIT, Arup, Future Cities Catapult, and D-Shape will join other influential technologists, entrepreneurs, academics, business leaders, and government of?cials at the RE.WORK Cities Summit in London to explore how innovative ideas in science, technology, and entrepreneurship are reshaping our future cities.

The day will be divided into seven sessions, covering topics from �Hacking, Prototyping & Smart Citizens� to �Synthetic Biology & The Living City.� A session called �The Internet of Things and the Socially Driven Smart City� will explore increased urbanisation, wireless communication, sustainable energy solutions, and civic engagement by applying advancing technology, such as the internet of things, sensors, 3D printing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, robotics, and artificial intelligence.

Moderated by Jemima Kiss, Head of Technology at The Guardian, the session will bring together Mischa Dohler, Professor of Wireless Communication at King�s College London, Marc Pous, Founder of theThings.io, and Carlo Ratti, Director of the MIT Senseable City Lab, for an in-depth discussion on breakthrough innovations that will impact our future urban areas.

We are experiencing an unprecedented era in the history of urbanization. How we manage the pace of urban growth will be one of the de?ning challenges of the 21st Century.

David Benjamin, Founding Principal at The Living, commented, "In the context of new technologies and new urban challenges, there is a great opportunity to create new living, breathing design ecosystems. At the RE.WORK summit, I'm looking forward to interacting with leading scientists and urbanists, and discussing how new technologies can create buildings and cities that are more adaptive, regenerative, and alive."
