Suzanne Livingston to speak about artificial intelligence at Dezeen Day

Suzanne Livingston, curator of the recent Barbican Centre exhibition about artificial intelligence, will speak about the impact of technology on cities at Dezeen Day on 30 October.

She will take part in a discussion about future cities, which will explore how urban areas will change in the face of technological, social and environmental pressures.

Livingston curated AI: More than Human, which ran in London from May to August this year and will now tour internationally.

The exhibition explored how AI will affect our lives and featured cutting-edge work by designers including Neri Oxman, Es Devlin, TeamLab and Yuri Suzuki. It explored topics including facial recognition, robotics and how AI can improve urban planning and road safety.

Livingston has a PhD in Philosophy from Warwick University, where she was a founding member of the influential Cybernetic Culture Research Unit (CCRU).
