Thank you to everyone who came out for, or live-streamed, our Think Tank! We had a wonderful time discussing the influence of artificial intelligence, technology, virtual and augmented reality in all aspects of design, including its impact on the City and the transformation of industrial era spaces to 21st century workspaces. We would especially like to thank our moderator, Susan S. Szenasy (Metropolis), and panelists Geoff Wardle (ArtCenter), Frances Anderton (KCRW), Ashley Z. Hand (CityFi), and Clive Wilkinson (Clive Wilkinson Architects).



On Wednesday, July 19th, join Metropolis Director of Design Innovation, Susan S. Szenasy, and Clive Wilkinson Architects for a Think Tank discussion on AI and the Workplace: The Peril and Promise of Advanced Computing.

As the power and presence of artificial intelligence grows, and machines increasingly become autonomous, what work will be left for us, mere humans? With our occupations such a central part of how we see ourselves, the worker’s concern with AI is as much existential as it is economical. Our cities and lifestyle shall be impacted by the new technological change brought on by Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things, and it is incumbent on city planners and architects to anticipate a new urban culture based on extreme mobility, connectedness and tribal communities.

This month, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago evolved to become the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab. This move brings not only a physical change of address but a whole new model to the field of rehabilitation. And, today, AbilityLab’s website is live! Check out our recent collaborative healthcare project for the number one ranked rehabilitation hospital here.

Our collaborative healthcare project, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago’s Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, is opening this month! With new in-house care support capabilities and five Innovation Centers, this new facility “… is ready to push the medical envelope and multidisciplinary collaboration into uncharted territory.”
