||Data Urbis: Digital Processes of Analysis and Intervention in Contemporary Cities
||According to a 2008 report on world urbanization published by the United Nations, the number of people living in cities has surpassed the rural population for the first time in history. Furthermore, current projections (United Nations, 2008, 3) show that the majority of growth will occur in cities in the developing world, a tendency which will significantly contribute to the increased complexity of the urban environment. This paper is concerned with critically reflecting on the role of computation in the emergence of recent practices and strategies which intend to successfully confront the intricate performance of present and future metropolises.
