About the Speech:

The urban mobility landscape of the future will be disrupted by the convergence of pervasive communication and a maturing self-driving technology. Traditional modes of transport (such as private cars, taxis, public transport, etc.) will be transformed radically by these technological breakthroughs and will blur the lines between private and public, individual and mass transportation. Paolo Santi presented recent research projects at the MIT Senseable City Lab, which is attempting to anticipate and influence these trends and pave the way towards more sustainable smart cities.
