How Technology Will Shape Urban Density with Rohit T. Aggarwala of Sidewalk Labs

Density is the essence of cities.  Every new technology affects the value of density, making it either more or less valuable -- and making urban life either more or less attractive as a result.  From ride-sharing to computer vision to autonomous vehicles, it is clear that digital technology will transform cities.  But will 21st century technology make cities more attractive, or less? Join as Rohit Aggarwala of Sidewalk Labs delves into these complex issues surrounding the future of technology’s role in the realm of planning.  Rohit will draw on insights gained from his vast experience from his time as Director of New York City’s Long-Term Planning and Sustainability to his current work leading many of Sidewalk Labs innovative projects.
