An Introduction to Smart Cities

Date: Mon 30 November 2020
Time: 1:00PM - 2:30PM
Where: Online Event

With technology and digital capabilities developing at an exponential rate, the way we live and work is changing. Think about how you travel, shop, communicate, get fit, eat, work etc. Thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), we are now more connected than ever and as such, the cities in which we live are adapting to the digital norms of human life.

In this webinar we’ll explore how cities are developing and how the internet and smart technologies are being used to turn cities into immersive hubs of information, interaction and convenience. We’ll highlight some of the extremes that are possible with an over use of digital technology but also, some of the amazing advancements and benefits that can be achieved by turning cities into smart, connected hubs. We’ll also highlight some of the practical benefits of communication, city management, emergency response, business and entertainment transactions, movement of people and more.

If you have a firm interest in technology, innovation and progress, and would like to better understand how technology is affecting the way we live and the areas we occupy, then you should find this webinar illuminating.
