Smart cities: bridging physical and digital

Leeds researchers are playing a part in an exhibition at Leeds City Museum demonstrating how the latest innovations in research and technology are revolutionising the urban landscape.


The 'Smart Cities: Bridging Physical & Digital' exhibition will give you the opportunity to engage with the latest technologies and to see for yourself how cities are becoming 'smarter' and more habitable.  Whether it’s simulating flight over the urban landscape, or understanding how Twitter and other forms of social media can help us tackle crime and traffic jams, we guarantee a fascinating experience.  Interactive exhibits have been developed by Leeds' Centre for Spatial Analysis and Policy together with the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at University College, London.

The exhibition, which is part of the 2012 Festival of Social Science, is being staged at Leeds City Museum on 9 and 10 November 2012.

The event is FREE and geared towards people of all ages and backgrounds. So be part of it. See how science is shaping our world and play a part in shaping science!
