DF seminar: What/Who is making our cities smart? Understanding human experience of mobility, transport and urban space
Mareike Glöss is a Digital Futures Postdoctoral Fellow. Mareike Glöss main research interest is understanding digital transformations and their diffusion into everyday life. She looks at how novel computing technologies are appropriated, and how this impacts everyday life.
Martin Nilsson, is a Mathematical physicist. Associate Professor (Sw. “Docent”) at RISE. His research focuses on machine learning and AI, but he has worked multidisciplinary in, e.g., signal processing, mechatronics, robotics, computer science, and biophysics. He is especially interested in neurobiophysics and the brain’s tipping us off how knowledge can be efficiently represented and processed in computers.
