Technology-Enabled Healthy & Local Food for Smart Cities

Nov 29, 2018

Session Description

With the advent of new smart technologies in IOT, Big Data, and AI, urban agriculture is rapidly evolving beyond community farms, school gardens and greenhouses. But how can cities effectively integrate agriculture into the built environment in a responsible and intelligent way? Henry and his team have developed a toolbox of solutions for cities to identify and encourage feasible urban agriculture solutions across the technology spectrum no matter where your city is located. The solutions encourage affordable and local food to residents based on a city’s sustainability, food access, and resiliency goals. Henry’s work with Atlanta, New York City, New Zealand and Saudi Arabia demonstrate how cities can use scenario planning to address their long-term food needs and connect smart agriculture to the smart city agenda.
