Fabio Carrera (MIT Ph.D.) will present some real-world applications that begin to demonstrate how it is now becoming practical to “fill the City Knowledge pipeline” from data collection, to information visualization, to modeling and interactive participation in urban planning decisions. What is emerging is the potential for an Autonomous Interactive Urban Planning Platform that:

- leverages mobile applications for straight-to-the-cloud citizensourcing of urban phenomena
- harvests sensor networks for real-time information
- captures information as it flows through municipal administrative processes
- visualizes information in multiple dimensions
- models synthetic populations and their behaviors
- provides instant feedback about the urban and environmental impacts in planning scenarios
- allows tangible interaction in participatory planning contexts
