Conscious Cities is delighted to announce that architect, computer scientist, creative designer and technologist Dr. Tasos Varoudis will join the list of distinguished speakers for the second annual conference on 3rd of May. Tasos currently works as a Senior Research Associate at The Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL), where as part of the Space Syntax Laboratory, he leads the development of spatial and architectural computation for next generation analyses and software.
Tasos’ work fits into Thematic 3, which asks how we can use high technology in the built environment as a way of facilitating the creation of more empathetic, dynamic and adaptable spaces. This theme will explore these emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality, as well as other high tech tools; low carbon, model simulators, and computer software like depthmapX. Tasos’ work has covered a range of topics within this burgeoning field of interest: in 2012 he co-organised a workshop on Architecture and Interaction, while more recently he was part of the team that developed a space syntax toolkit to integrate depthmapX and exploratory spatial analysis workflows in QGIS.There are some fascinating debates to be had here and Tasos’ expertise will undoubtedly provide some useful catalysts for discussion.
Don’t miss out – tickets are still available for the Conscious Cities Conference on Wednesday 3rd May in London. Get yours now to be part of the conversation.
