Markets in Motion – Cyber Physical Symposium

The round table Markets in Motion explores the roles of digital spatial technologies in innovating future markets. Focusing on a practice-based applied research approach, the discussion will address the design of innovation.

Within the framework of the exhibition 'Cyber Physical: Architecture in Real Time', EPFL Pavilions presented a full-day free symposium on Friday 22 September 2023 bringing together speakers from the worlds of art and science.

At the intersection of art, technology and architecture, 'Cyber Physical: Architecture in Real Time' reshapes our perception of the physical and digital realms. The exhibition presents four installations that incorporate digital elements such as creative AI and 3D projections into tangible structures, to create interactive and responsive environments. This synergy enables architectural spaces to dynamically adapt and communicate with both their users and surroundings.

Within the framework of the exhibition, EPFL Pavilions presents a full-day free symposium questioning this interconnection through four themes — Blurring Humans, Harmonious AI, Intimate Hybrids and Markets in Motion – merging together perspectives of scientists and artists. The speakers will share their cutting-edge practice on the forms, the relevance and the feasibility of the digital extensions of our realities.
