Website

Andrea Vaccari is research assistant at the Senseable City Lab of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he is studying the integration of information and communication technologies in the built environment, and their implications in the social dynamics that drive city life itself. Throughout initiatives like WikiCity and the New York Talk Exchange, currently featured at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the laboratory aims to leverage the huge volume of real-time geo-referenced data provided by digital devices and sensor networks to better understand cities as real-time control systems, and to provide new tools to innovate and anticipate the effects of such innovations. Vaccari is currently completing his M.Sc. in computer engineering at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy and the joint program in computer science at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
