Benjamin Bratton presents a lecture on “The Turing City.” He poses the idea of an urban operating system, while documenting the history of software development and non-specialized computing devices. Bratton cites the influences of Alain Badiou and Marshall McLuhan, who redefines the city into a landscape of smart networks and prostheses. Finally, Bratton speculates on how we might interface with this new city model.
