Walking in Times of Uber Cities

Monday, June 26, 2017 10:02 AM | Daphne Politis

Considering this pattern of urban design, what is the position of pedestrians and cyclists in a global sharing economy where Uber (the mobile app officially launched in 2011) serves 570 cities across the world? As we approach a future of autonomous, driverless, electric cars and buses, the conditions of walkable mobility will need to rely on smart mutations of existing roads and highways. These spaces are becoming obsolete in the cyborg city, where artificial intelligence and natural human flows (such as pedestrian movements) intensively interact.
