December 16, 2019

Bruno Lepri's talk at the seventh edition of TEDxTrento: "FOCUS 2039"

In 2050, almost 70% of the world population will live in urban areas and this will lead to an increase in both pros and cons.

So what cities will be expecting us in 2039? How can the new artificial intelligence techniques be used to design safe, functional, creative, liveable, and happy cities?
