Panel: Smart Cities in a World of Big Data and Ubiquitous Connectivity

3:00 pm

Cities are becoming increasingly important in the lives of their citizens as well as economic engines for their regions as well as countries. As data is increasingly available from every minute aspect of city life, and ubiquitous connectivity can provide all of it to central locations, how will this impact the daily life of a city as well as the lives of its citizens. Traffic, municipal services, health, play; what aspects of daily life will be transformed by this change.

Panel: Smart and Autonomous Transportation

2:00 pm

Technology is increasingly becoming available in cars and in roadways to provide real time data of traffic and car performance and behavior. Data transmission inside the car already occurs between sensors, inter-car communications on an ad-hoc basis is coming soon, as well as communications up to the cloud. This is another step on the road to fully autonomous driving. What sorts of applications will this enable in the near term? Will the car become another node at an equal basis to your home and office? What infrastructure improvements are needed short term to support new applications? How to we get from here to autonomous cars?

Speakers:
