Technology Series

kl3Will you soon be driving a folding car? Will your apartment be tricked out with robotic walls, converting your dining room into a yoga studio and then a bedroom? The world is changing even faster than we think. In this century 90% of population growth will be in cities, meaning that we have to rapidly reimagine our environment and how we live in it.

Kent Larson, director of MIT Media Lab’s “Changing Places” group, will outline the startling challenges cities are undergoing and highlight new technologies that will rapidly transform the way we live.

This was the first of a series of events on technology and how it is changing our lives.

Moderator: Jurriaan Ruys

In collaboration with: U.S. Embassy in The Hague.
