Senseable Cities | Carlo Ratti
The increasing deployment of sensors and hand-held electronics in recent years is allowing a new approach to the study of the built environment. The way we describe and understand cities is being radically transformed – alongside the tools we use to design them and impact on their physical structure.
Consumer Engagement in the Digital Era
The profound changes in digital consumer behavior occurred across a variety of sectors, including mobile, social media, video, advertising, search and e-commerce, and are the result of transformative shifts in platforms, content, demographics, and marketing. As digital platforms continue to emerge, media fragmentation will only accelerate, creating the defining marketing challenge of this era.

The change is revolutionary.

Tech Investing Outside the Silicon Valley
European venture-capital investment last year reached its highest level since the dot-com boom, on the back of a healthy market for initial public offerings. Successful technology startups are bursting out of the tech hubs of London, Stockholm and Tel Aviv, among other cities. Innovative young companies come from the broader reaches of Europe, the Middle East and Africa. What’s still up for debate is whether Europe’s economy and its patchwork of regulations can keep cultivating the freewheeling ecosystem that startups need to thrive. Which are the challenges of tech investing outside the Silicon Valley?
