On this week’s Reflexive City we take a look at the contrasting forces fuelling city development: people and machines. We celebrate the launch of the UN Habitat’s World Cities Report and explore its theme of sustainable urbanisation with an interview with Think City’s Uta Dietrich, while a pilot project in China outlines a potentially troubling future for AI controlled smart cities.
