This week we have Christian Villum of the Danish Design Center. He. does some amazing work in smart cities and design.
Ralph Clark has a job that, hopefully, will someday soon disappear. He is CEO of Shotspotter, a system that listens for and triangulates shots fired in cities, jungles, and forests. His system, live in 90 cities, is essentially a quick and easy way for police to listen for dangerous situations and respond as necessary. He talks about Smart City World Expo Congress in Barcelona and we discussed the future of gun violence and the problems facing modern cities.
Amar Hanspal is an SVP of Product at Autodesk and wanted to talk to us about the future of manufacturing and the tools future makers will use to change the world. Cool stuff.
