Michael Dunaway and Dean Skidmore - who represent the Public Safety Supercluster in National Institute of Standards and Technology's Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC) - call upon Cincinnati to formally join their collaborative efforts in improving public safety and resilience within smart connected communities.
This weekend's mass shooting is an upsetting example of why public safety is highlighted within the four pillars of smart cities. Technologies are available to prevent senseless acts such as those that happened in Cincinnati this weekend, and we want to help usher in those solutions in short time in our smart cities, connected campuses, and advanced facilities throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
