Making Cities Smarter Through Wireless

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over half of the world's population lives in cities, presenting new challenges for urban governance, sustainability, and energy use. Technology like advanced sensors and data analysis has already been deployed in cities large and small to make local government for efficient, transparent, and effective, but many initiatives are only in their earliest stages. The public and private sector have committed to investing millions of dollars in grants and projects to vastly expand participation and impact of these initiatives, but are we equipped to bring them to maturity? As the Internet of Things expands, what can we learn from existing smart cities and civic technology programs? How can industry, government, academia and other stakeholders work most effectively to make cities more livable, resilient, and equitable for their residents?
