On June 28th, a panel discussion UABB@Paris | Towards the City of Tomorrow will be organized at Pavillon de l’Arsenal in Paris, themed at “Urban Interactions, Artificial Intelligence, New Humanism”. Today, our cities produce unprecedented amounts of data, which can be harnessed and transformed into responses from the citizens or the government. The convergence between digital information and the physical environment, bound by IoT networks, has enormous potential. Applications can be indeed manifold: from waste management, to energy, public health, civic participation, mobility… The panel aims to engage thought leaders in a strategic dialogue around 2019 UABB and how AI can shape the cities of tomorrow. We invited great architect Dominique Perrault, involved in “Eyes of the CIty” section at UABB, as a special speaker. French journalist and writerFrancis Pisani will give perspectives on innovation, creative cities, and smart citizens.

Bi-City Biennale of UrbanismArchitecture (UABB) is currently the only biennial exhibition in the world that is based exclusively on the set themes of URBANISM AND URBANIZATION. Co-organized by the two neighboring and closely interacting cities of Shenzhen and Hong Kong, UABB situates itself within the regional context of the rapidly urbanizing Pearl River Delta, concerns itself with globally common urban issues, extensively communicates and interacts with the wider public, is presented using expressions of contemporary visual culture, and engages in international and avant-garde dimensions as well as discourses of public interest.
