Join Milieux for the workshop “Secret Lives of Data Publics: Mixed Reality Smart City Interfaces” at CHI 2018, Montreal, April 21-22.

In this two-day workshop, participants will construct prototype mixed reality interfaces for engaging the informational layer of the built urban environment. Using the Unity game engine and the Microsoft X-Reality (XR) tools, participants will focus on generative design in the space of data-driven interfaces, addressing issues of data access, actionability, and privacy in the context of smart cities. Specific attention will be paid to interfaces that facilitate harmonious co-existence between humans and non-human systems (AI, IoT, etc.). Over the course of this mixed reality workshop, participants will construct prototype interfaces for engaging data publics – the informational layer of the built environment.

Organized by Beth Coleman (University of Waterloo), Matt Ratto (University of Toronto), Gabby Resch (University of Toronto) and Bart Simon (Concordia University). 

Sponsored by Milieux and Microsoft Research.
