Bio:
Assaf Biderman teaches at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he is the Associate Director of the SENSEable City Laboratory, an MIT research group that explores the “real-time city” by studying the increasing deployment of sensors and networked hand-held electronics, and their relationship to the built environment. Biderman’s work focuses on engaging city administrations and industry members worldwide to explore how pressing issues in urbanization are being impacted by a wave of new distributed technologies, and how these can be harnessed to create a more sustainable future living in urban environments.

Biderman has background in physics and human-computer interaction.
