Ephemurl is an avant-garde research venture collaboratively undertaken by NTAR to delve into the speculative exploration of dystopian urban futures. As society tiptoes on the precipice of technological leaps, Ephemurl emerges as a crucible of thought, where the intricate interplay of computational methodologies unveils both the promise and peril of urban evolution. Through visionary inquiry, we navigate the intricate web of possibilities, contemplating the ethereal boundaries between progress and peril, between utopia and dystopia. Amidst this kaleidoscope of foresight, Ephemurl stands as a beacon of intellectual audacity, igniting discourse, and illuminating the shadowed corridors of our urban destiny. Ephemurl has unearthed profound revelations concerning urban future patterns and the dynamic role of the Internet of Things (IoT). We have witnessed the emergence of interconnected urban landscapes, where IoT orchestrates a symphony of efficiency, offering seamless connectivity, data-driven decision-making, and resource optimization. However, the underbelly of this interconnected tapestry has alsounveiled potential pitfalls, highlighting the fragility of data security, loss of privacy, and the looming specter of unchecked surveillance.
