Smart Cincy was pleased to have Mitchell Kominsky (Venture Smarter), Jeremy Faust (5/3 Bank), Nicollette Statton (City of Cincinnati), Oliver Kroner (City of Cincinnati) and Scott Tousley (Department of Homeland Security, Science & Technology) participate in the second annual summit on the panel titled, Resilience: Risk Assessment and Mitigation in Smart Cities & Regions.
The tragic mass shooting that took place Saturday at Cameo Nightclub is a jarring reminder of the importance of the smart cities pillar of security. Public safety is now top of mind in Cincinnati, and the Regional Smart Cities Initiative and its supporters must lead the conversation about how technology can make our city a safer place to live and work. To that end:
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.
