Future Cities Lab Co-Founder and Design Partner Jason Kelly Johnson will be speaking at Machines of Loving Grace: A Symposium on AI, Architecture, and Virtual Worlds, hosted by Ozel Suprastudio as part of the IDEAS Lecture Series. The symposium will take place at the UCLA Architecture and Urban Design IDEAS Campus on Saturday, March 11th. Jason will be speaking about the work of Future Cities Lab and its exploration of “robotic ecologies”—places where biology and machine intelligence merge, evolve and co-create. He will discuss a few projects that visualize the future of how we live, work, communicate and play. The conference will focus on the emergence of artificial intelligence, robotics, automation and virtual reality and how it has transformed the way we design and experience spaces. The physical and the digital realities begin to blur and morph into one another, igniting an evolution of the human-machine society. The symposium will feature presenters of various fields engaging in this discussion of “the intersection of technology and the environments we occupy and socialize in.” It should be an incredibly interesting discussion!
