About the event
How architects, urban designers and engineers will use computation over the next few decades and what this means for your role.
Violet Whitney is a product manager at Sidewalk Labs where she leads generative design and research with software engineers, computational designers, urban designers and architects.
Violet is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, where she teaches urban data analytics courses Data Mining the City. Her research analyzes the ways by which recommendation systems generate spatialized filter bubbles and the potential for data-driven techniques like location awareness and natural language processing to reveal unseen patterns in everyday social media, video, and images.
Prior to joining Sidewalk, Violet created a humanitarian mapping project that geolocates civilian journalist YouTube videos for the Center for Spatial Research; led research and development of interactive and immersive environments at SOFTlab; and developed sustainability analytics tools as a LEED Specialist at SmithGroupJJR.
