Architects and urban planners are starting to use advanced satellite images and drones in their projects, but the potential of these innovative analytical tools is still largely untapped. We focus on drawings and photographs but we often miss the wider perspective offered by a view from above.
How much “hidden” information about our planet and our cities can be discovered with new technologies? What can satellites do now and what they may able to do in ten years time to help us building better and more sustainable cities? How can machine learning contribute to tackle pollution, reduce waste production and prevent environmental disasters?
After graduating in Computer Science, Leonardo worked as a software developer with a focus on data and spatial analysis.
In 2016 he co-founded Studiomapp, a startup that develops digital solutions measuring and improving the liveability of urban areas, increasing the efficiency of construction sites and enhancing the sustainability of architecture. In this talk, Leonardo will tell us how the evolution of artificial intelligence will influence the future of the building industry.
