Event description

Description

From driverless cars, to delivery robots, digitised homes and networks of sensors that monitor & manage traffic flows, our cities and public services are becoming increasingly automated.

Join the Urban Institute at the University of Sheffield to debate what automation means for the future of our society, economies and the environment. Our speakers are:

Matthew Gandy, University of Cambridge will discuss the spectacle of urban light and the limits of LEDS and smart technologies in capturing the politics of light pollution.

Robyn Dowling, University of Sydney and Pauline McGuirk University of Wollongong, explore the complex practices involved in automating cities focusing on vehicles and buildings and reflect on how such processes may change urban life.

The public lecture is followed by a drinks reception & is proceeded by a two-day international workshop on Urban Robotics and Automation sponsored by the Urban Institute, University of Sheffield and Centre for Urban Studies, University of Amsterdam.
