Welcome to the Senseable City Lab - a cutting-edge multidisciplinary research group that studies the interface between cities, people, and technologies and investigates how the ubiquity of digital devices and the various telecommunication networks that augment our cities, are impacting urban living. With an overall goal of anticipating future trends, we bring together researchers from over a dozen academic disciplines to work on groundbreaking ideas and innovative real-world demonstrations.
Each academic year, the Senseable City Lab invites students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to participate in the Digital City Design Workshop. The workshop seeks to provide pragmatic, technological solutions that address a crucial concern of urban living. The Senseable City Guide series showcases this research which is undertaken in partnership with cities from across the world.
