Technology, data, and analytics are changing our lives and society, and the emergence of IoT, AI, 5G, drones, and other recent technologies promises even greater transformation of business, healthcare, transportation, mobility, energy, safety, food, and more. With more than 50% of the world's population now living in urban areas—and rising rapidly— cities are becoming increasingly more important. The rapid advances in technology and increasing urbanization present amazing opportunities for creating so-called “smart cities.” Cities will use these new, cutting edge technologies, diverse sources of digital data, and accelerating advances in analytics and AI to improve how cities are designed and operated, and how they will change our experiences and opportunities.
Jay Boisseau, founder and executive director of the Austin CityUP Consortium, and smart cities expert Chelsea Collier, Digi.City, will share recent advances and the potential future for emerging technologies to radically transform our cities and our lives.
