Join EarthX and North Lake College for an evening to explore the idea, 'what makes a 'smart city' smart?' Learn how new technologies and open access to data is transforming our communities, enhancing quality of life and sustaining our resources for future generations. Smart Cities embrace the Internet of Things (IoT), and utilize communication technologies and strategies across all community needs and daily living. According to Business Insider, cities will need to become more efficient with collection and analysis of data as more people move to cities putting pressure on infrastructure, environmental, economic and social resources. At this event, you will hear from expert speakers from business and government about smart initiatives in our region like 5-G, autonomous vehicles, open data, building sensors and biodiversity meters.
