March 27, 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

Sean Harrington from Verizon and Brenna Berman from City Tech Collaborative and the City of Chicago will both share their perspectives on where we are headed with Smart Communities in US cities. We will dive into 5G, mobility, traffic, Vision Zero, situational learning, the “dilemma zone”, multi-modal approaches, and where we go from here. How are they all converging, building upon each other and leading us into the next phase of smart cities? Are we truly entering that next phase of smart cities or are we still stuck in the last one? If so, how do we leapfrog to the next phase? What partnerships, financing, technology and policies are emerging that will catalyze the new wave of smart cities? And how close are we to that new paradigm? Hear from Sean and Brenna on real-world examples and how the “smart cities” promise is playing out on the ground.
