Smart Cities of 2030: Communities Empowered by Tech
December 5, 2017, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm PSTFree
Presented by Verizon in partnership with Meeting of the Minds.
Taking a step back from gadgets, widgets, platforms, and products, how can the citizen experience be transformed through a truly “smart” community strategy? Can we get to a place where the city of 2030 is not bogged down by tech, but rather, seamlessly connected with a focus on community engagement and empowerment? What do residents really need to improve their quality of life? Where are the gaps and how can urban services be delivered equitably across the city? What public private partnerships will be key to enable these transformations? Citizens can be empowered by more than their mobile devices as smart lighting integrates with intelligent traffic systems, microgrids provide improved resiliency, digital kiosks become wifi hotspots, and augmented reality replaces static signage for wayfinding.
These ideas are becoming reality as cities and campuses transform their communities for a more sustainable, safe, and efficient future.
Join us on Tuesday, December 5th to learn from experts heading these initiatives, network with public, private, and non-profit sector thought leaders, and experience Verizon and partner solution technologies with a tour of the Innovation Center.
