Digital FUTURES Shanghai 2018

In this day in age, the society we currently live in as well as what is expected from the future is all technologically based. As a result of this, people rely heavily on some form of a technological device. During my recent trip to China, I was able to take part in the 8th Digital FUTURES Shanghai Summer Workshop, which focused greatly on this topic. It took place at the College of Architecture and Urban Planning, at Tonji University, in Shanghai, China. This university is ranked 18th in the world for architecture in the 2018 QS Top Universities rankings. They have taken part in robotic fabrication as well as futuristic workshops, which involve the use of drones to monitor environmental pollution. However, this year’s workshops focuses on Artificial Intelligence, which are taught by leading experts from various universities around the United States, as well as Tonji University.
