The quality of urban life in the future will be ever more dependent on the complex relationship between computer systems, engineering, physics and human behaviour.

This relationship between people and the technology we use has impact on all aspects of our everyday lives – from how we power our homes and businesses to how we produce our food.

Business, government and industry rely on integrated technology, which could deliver major improvements to our lives but is also vulnerable to cyber attack and software failure.

The need to understand and bring these different elements closer together to work efficiently is critically important if society is to prosper.

Newcastle University’s School of Computing is spearheading international research in this area called cyber physical systems.
