250 guests and thousands of live stream viewers will convene at the second annual Smart Cincy Summit to explore the future of our city and region, and the impact that new technologies, policies, and strategies will have for people regardless of socioeconomic or physical barriers.
As we deploy the foundational layer of connectivity for people, places, things, and information, we can begin to build a test bed to enable the internet of transportation, ushering in a new age of accessible and equitable mobility catalyzed by intelligent technologies and smart infrastructure planning. These efforts will bolster social mobility, enhance economic development, and lead to improved experiences for residents and visitors, alike.
The morning panels will feature leaders across government, business and academia, highlighting recent Smart Cities success stories, challenges, and opportunities to collaborate...
