The physical and social structure of the city is being increasingly shaped by autonomous technologies. Self-driving cars, drones, smart power grids and robots driven by an artificial intelligence, are expected to become part of the everyday life of cities over the next couple of decades, thereby generating a substantial socio-political, environmental and economic impact. Far from being a homogeneous phenomenon, urban automation varies in extent and nature across different geographical spaces, and this session aims to explore its multiple incarnations and variegations.
