The [CPU]lab (an established Research Group at MSA/MMU) uses a complexity framework for interdisciplinary research spanning natural, social and design sciences. This involves new digital tools, computational thinking and theory addressing urban transformations. Research spans Future Cities, Smart Cities, IoT, agile governance and cities as complex adaptive systems (CAS), with a focus on sustainable futures, emerging technologies and new design methodology. The lab is a founding member of Data and Cities as Complex Adaptive Systems (DACAS) an international ESRC Strategic Network. CPU and DACAS are on
