Abstract/Description

Where can researchers find inspiration for the transformative applications, concepts and infrastructures that they believe will characterise the next decade? One approach to predicting the future is to reflect on the visions of the future that have been proposed in the past, and question how these visions are actively shaping our present. This session looks at the way in which cinema's portrayal of the future city has been a source of inspiration for scientists, technologists and commentators.
