Senseable Stockholm Lab

Senseable Stockholm Lab Day, 5 October 2021

Senseable Stockholm Lab Day will allow you to experience Stockholm in unexpected ways. During two years of collaboration, MIT and KTH researchers have used sensors on moving vehicles, geotagged social network data and analyses of travel time to get new perspectives and to address challenges defined by the city. Their results – so far – will be presented as part of “The Innovation Week”, broadcasted from Stockholm City Hall and hosted by the City of Stockholm.

Senseable Stockholm Lab is a collaboration between KTH, MIT and the City of Stockholm, that investigates urban socio-economic and environmental challenges in the growing city. Since 2019, the lab has studied Stockholm with unconventional methods, taking advantage of e.g. internet of things, big data and artificial intelligence. The purpose is to develop methodology and build knowledge that can be used for long-term sustainable urban development and to investigate the conditions for the development of the smart city of the future. The lab’s findings and insights can be used to improve the way the city works in areas like segregation, sustainability and transport.

During the day, Senseable Stockholm Lab, ongoing research and findings so far will be presented. Professor Carlo Ratti, MIT Senseable City Lab, Mayor Anna König Jerlmyr and the president of KTH, Sigbritt Karlsson participate in the program.
