Gigalopolises in 2030


Got this article from Scientific American today. Scary to think that 2030 is the year when my youngest grandchildren will be 22 years old! http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=cities-may-triple-in-size-by-2030&WT.mc_id=SA_CAT_ENGYSUS_20120920

At HP Labs we are engaged in research that addresses the use of IT for sustainability, as data is needed to design, build and manage infrastructure for the sustainable age. For those who are in academia, we better start developing the multidisciplinary, hands on engineering and science curricula that will develop the engineers with the knowledge and skills needed to design and manage those gigalopolises (as well as their impact on the rest of the world).

By the way, if you like to read more about a proposed IT for Sustainability Curriculum, a colleague and co-author will present a paper next October at the Frontiers in Education Conference in Seattle http://fie2012.org/. Drop me an enail and I will send you a copy.

  1. Dear Lueny,

    Pl send me your paper on *IT for Sustainability Curriculum.* ** We had a very interesting *Innovation Ecosystem* conference organized by INAE, which you said you would be attending. I am attaching the Conference program and my Presentation. Best Wishes, Natarajan
