Data has been around for centuries. But the process of collecting, accessing, and processing data has gone through a facelift in the last several years and the result presents an array of unexplored opportunities and challenges. What does data mean now and how does it impact the way we understand and shape our cities?

Join us for a short presentation by leaders in the fields of data, design, and real estate followed by a panel discussion.

2 LU AIA credits are available.

This discussion is part of BSA Space's current exhibition, Balancing Act: Urbanism & Emerging Technologies. The exhibition explores how technology influences our urban experience and the possibilities to focus emerging technologies towards the human experience and develop best urban practices to make our cities more livable, equitable, and sustainable.
