Neighborhoods of the Future

A sensor-studded "Quantified Community" that tracks the movements, habits, and health of residents sounds like a creepy futuristic land run by cyborgs, but it's not—it's Hudson Yards. Developer Related Companies partnered with NYU's Center for Urban Science and Progress to "measure and analyze key physical and environmental attributes" in the neighborhood when it's built. The goal is to create "an interactive, data-driven experience" for residents, which sounds very cold and digital, but the idea is that the data will help Related control the minds of residents better manage the community.
