Round-table recap: Smart City Connectivity on Feb. 22 at UpTech
Key Takeaway: Connectivity first in smart cities. Standars, protocols, and interoperability are a must in the planning of smart cities, connected campuses, and advanced facilities.
Thanks to all who attended our last smart city round-table at UpTech! If you were unable to make it, the chance for redemption is on Wednesday, March 15th at the next Smart Cities Round-Table in the Beer Hall at Union Hall (11am-1pm.) Join us for free lunch and to discuss the pillars of smart cities with a focus on mobility and sustainability including clean water and clean air.
Attendees of the February round-table included foreign and local public officials, private sector executives, academic leaders, and emerging innovators. Every guest shared the Smart Cincy passion for smarter cities and streamlined solutions that leverage technology to improve our collective quality of life.
We dialogue about existing projects and opportunity areas, discussed the pillars of smart cities and applications including case studies, and briefly touched on details about the upcoming Smart Cincy Summit on April 25th before breaking for lunch and then into small groups. Join us at an upcoming round-table or at the summit this spring. Get in touch with any questions or to get involved.
