    Carlo Ratti at the Knowlton School

    This past Wednesday, as the Mingle lecture series moves into the later half, Carlo Ratti came by the Knowlton School to lecture. Ratti, the Trott Distinguished Visiting Professor, practices in Italy, teaches at MIT, and works between architecture and engineering. The engineering aspect reveals itself fairly quickly within his work as systems monitor, collect, disperse, and navigate the city. 

    The presented work mainly concerned how the city is operating and how humans can respond and use information that is collected by a series of devices. What becomes interesting in his work is the theme of feedback, where interesting results may accidentally be found through the processes. This manifests itself not only as the robots themselves react to the operations, but humans as well in attempts to deal with the systems.
