Speaker

Dr. Tasos Varoudis

University College London (UCL)

Tasos is a licensed architect and computing engineer with research focusing on hybrid architecture, computational analysis and interaction. Since 2011 he leads the spatial and architectural computation research for the Space Syntax Laboratory at the Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL) where he is developing new methodological and computational innovations combining spatial data-driven models with machine learning and agent-based models.

Prof. Kate Jeffery

Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience, University College London (UCL)

Kate founded the Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience at UCL, a laboratory comprising several researchers who use physiological methods to study cognition. She studies how spatially sensitive neurons encode complex spaces, with a particular focus on two main issues: three-dimensional space, and the internal “sense of direction”.

Prof. Moshe Bar

Director, Gonda Brain Research Center, Bar Ilan University

Neuroscientist and director of the Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center at Bar-Ilan University and professor at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. A co-author of ‘A Manifesto for Conscious Cities’, arguing that data, technology and planning techniques can be used to improve our built environment.
