Today, interdisciplinary planning teams, engaged citizens and cutting-edge researchers and innovators are shaping the cities we live in and with. Technology lies at the heart of many of these modern cities, as we build smart cities–sustainable, climate-resilient, resource-efficient communities on foundations of smart electricity grids, regenerative utility systems, 3-D construction technologies and a whole new understanding of sustainable materials.
These smart spaces use arrays of sensors to collect data and then use insights gained from that data to manage assets, resources and services efficiently. First up for urban disruption is likely transportation, but housing, health care and social services, municipal processes, and community collaboration will also come into play.
The thinking taking place now will have far-reaching implications for urban dwellers. Join us and 4,000+ creative and curious minds as we learn from the people on the forefront of this transformation. Inventures 2020 explores this and other timely, thought-provoking topics in an unforgettable three-day experience in Calgary June 3-5, 2020.
