This symposium discusses the trajectory of human-centered society development in Asia through interdisciplinary and transnational dialogues. To what extent can technology support human-centered approaches to urban living? Does the trajectory for human-centered society development address human interests, values, and well-being, or simply the technology itself? Where are cultural, societal, and heritage values situated within this trajectory?
