The Future of Urban Life After COVID: The Rise of Smart Cities
What is the future of the city after COVID? And what does the acceleration toward remote life and technological convenience mean for integrating technologies to foster the development of smart cities?
These are some of the most important questions that futurist Jason Schenker will address in this talk on the future of urban life and smart cities after COVID. There will be a discussion of the major technological accelerations because of COVID-19 as well as an exploration of the most relevant technologies that will help shape smart city development. This exploration of the future of urban life and the development of smart cities will inform attendees of the medium-term synergies, opportunities, and challenges for smart cities in the decade ahead.
Mr. Schenker will share his visions for how people will live in cities of the future and why this is the time to plan for the changes ahead. There will also be a discussion of population distribution, economic opportunity, and how technology is just beginning to permeate all aspects of people’s lives. Cities of the future will be smart cities, but will we be smart enough to effectively prepare for and successfully implement their creation? Join this session to find out.
