What makes a city livable? How do we improve our use of transportation, infrastructure, and energy? How do we interact with our communities and governments? How does technology factor into the equation? Our increasingly connected world of devices with intelligent connections that seamlessly integrate the physical and information worlds—the Internet of Things—presents immense opportunity to transform the ability of cities to offer new services to their residents, optimize the efficiency of existing services, and improve the overall sustainability and resiliency of their communities.
Please join Microsoft for a morning panel discussion on Wednesday, May 20 that will bring together experts who address these questions each day. The event will engage speakers and the audience in an exploration of how governments and localities are using innovations in technology and new types of public-private partnerships to operationalize smart cities. It will touch on where we want to go and how we get there, recognizing some of the challenges along the way. Students are welcome to attend!
