UNSense at The Next Web

This week, Filippo Lodi, UNStudio’s head of Research & Technology will host a round table discussion at The Next Web conference, held in the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. The engagement session, entitled “How technology in the built environment can enable healthier cities” will be held on Thursday May 24th at 13:30.

At the session. Filippo will discuss how technology in the built environment can change the landscape of cities for the good with the help of data, sensors and machine learning.

Technology is meant to empower us, but very often it doesn’t. The “always on” mode at work can lead to increased levels of stress and burnout. Studies show that work-related stress is the second most frequently reported work-related health problem. Without prevention, stress will become a huge financial burden on cities while severely impacting people s quality of life. So, how can we counteract the blurred line between the online/offline realms in a fast-paced world?
