Please join ESI, Penn IUR, and Perry World House for an interactive discussion on findings from a year-long global assessment of smart city solutions. Presenters and panelists will explore how cities can go beyond current smart solutions to become ‘hyperconnected’ hubs generating large economic, social, and environmental benefits by linking key elements of their urban landscape – from transportation to public health and security, government to business and residents. Speakers will provide an overview of the study’s research objectives, demonstrate how cities are using technology to generate return on investment, and explore how others can develop their own playbook to become hyperconnected leaders.
