Contemporary cities face enormous risks, particularly high levels of mounting social and environmental risks. Digital technologies are often advertised as critical tools to eliminate these risks. But what happens when multiple systems interact, collaborate or compete? In this session we want to explore questions and approaches how to manage and handle urban risks by digital enabled systems with experts from urban planning, computer science, sociology and urban health as a transdisciplinary project. Rather for solutions, we aim for productive questions to frame a transdisciplinary perspective to create a city without risk in the world of digital heterogeneity in urban infrastructure and urban health.
