Urban Intelligence: Building Cities That Thrive

Monday, March 14
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 8ABC
531 E 4th St

Today major cities are emerging from scratch in markets like Pacific Asia and MENA. These "pop-up cities" are spearheading economic growth and social and cultural transformation at a global scale—but what about old cities? With the world population set to double in 30 years, we can’t rely on new cities to accommodate the surge. We must create new models to rebuild and restore old cities—fast.

This panel brings together experts from cities new and old to look at how stakeholders leverage urban intelligence, computer vision, sensors and more to support this transformation. We'll debate where cities are headed next and how these new approaches will change the future of business and culture.
