Technology, the City and Me – Walking tour

About

Meeting at Factory Shop, join a directed walk with Loraine Clarke, Jon Rogers & Nick Taylor through the streets of Dundee to share, discover and map relationships people have between technology and life in and around the city centre.

The Open IoT Studio is a partnership between the University of Dundee and Mozilla Foundation, an organisation dedicated to creating a healthier internet. Together, they’re exploring how the rapid spread internet connected objects is shaping our lives, and trying to create a vision for a future with more trustworthy and fair technology.

Over three days, they will be working in Factory Shop to design and build new ideas for Dundee city centre using the internet. How can we revitalise the high street? How can we connect people in new ways? How can people take control of their public spaces? Come inside, see what they’re doing, find out about the future of the internet, or take part in our scheduled workshops to help shape Dundeeā€™s connected future!

They will also be displaying a map of the Internet by artist and activist Vladan Joler and prototypes exploring trust in voice assistants by Martin Skelly.
