Program

Creating smarter cities requires urban infrastructures that accelerates the transition to a smarter city. This is a project that requires much more than connected technologies.

Emerging innovations will be critical, as will engaged businesses and citizens — and together these change-agents are reshaping the city. Such new tools are radically altering our urban assets (water, energy, transport, buildings); shifting the ways that we design and use such systems; transforming our economies; disrupting our societies. Smart and connected urban infrastructure is now a reality, and autonomous vehicles driving themselves is only one of visible elements . Smarter policies that match the smarter tech makes possible the multimodal / integrated transportation systems which provide commuters with more options; the data analytics which manage the flows inside data-powered energy and water grids. Hyper-efficient cities should be much more than hyper-productive; they must be more livable and more equitable.

Gordon Feller will provide a few glimpses around the corners, with a clear-eyed view of urban futures which are emergent.
