Week 12 - The Future of Urban Informatics


We have nearly reached the end of the semester and it is about time to bring all the hard work we have done to a final set of products. Between this week and next we will bring our efforts to their conclusion. This week we will complete our final city exploration–an in-person urban hike–and we will conduct workshops to brainstorm about the Final Paper, Presentation, and Database, which will be due at the end of next week.

In parallel, we will read Anthony Townsend’s summary of “The New Urban Science” and the programs that are pursuing it. The article will serve as a jumping off point so that we can discuss our own thoughts on the overall nature of the field is and what the future holds for it.
