Updates from our future city | Kent Larson, Ryan Chin, Caleb Harper and Ira Winder | TEDxBoston

Aeroponic urban farms, autonomous personal mobility vehicles, and a 3D data observatory that make cities more livable and planners more engaged.

Dr. Ryan Chin is the managing director of the City Science Initiative focusing on developing new urban systems for a post-oil, connected world.

Ira Winder works with the CityScience Initiative to manage the design and development of CityScope, a platform for participatory design.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
