His talk is titled: “Through a Glass, Darkly.”
In this talk, he will discuss a number of technologies and creative strategies developed by i-DAT and its collaborators. Collectively described as ‘Operating Systems’, these digital tools explore how data generated by a building and its inhabitants can influence human behaviour by providing a greater environmental awareness of our biological, ecological and social activities.
