A city for humans
FutureNYC renders what NYC can become when autonomous cars enable us to replace parking and traffic with parks, promenades, playgrounds, event halls, theater spaces, and cafes.

Ari Teman

Ari Teman is an award-winning, patent-holding inventor and designer, technologist, author, and founder of four international organizations.

His work has been recognized by The White House, Mayor Bloomberg's office, international press and foundations. He's also a standup comedian seen on TV and clubs in NYC, LA, TLV, and around the world. He began to sketch FutureNYC when stuck in a smelly NYC cab going nowhere fast.

Here are a few things he started:

Friend or Fraud : Cybersecurity using computer vision & deep learning (AI).

12gurus, the strategy and design firm that also hosts 12gurus:Charity and 12gurus:Health innovation conferences.

JCorps : The award-winning international volunteer network with thousands of members from over 180 colleges, 800 companies, that operated in 7 cities, across the USA, Canada, and Israel.

GatherGrid : Find the best time for a group to meet.
