As communities across America work to better serve their citizens, many are looking to a blend of physical and digital infrastructure to improve outcomes in transportation, water, energy, and other built infrastructure systems. But what does it mean to be a "smart" city or region? This summit convenes experts and practitioners from city and county government, public agencies and utilities, and the private sector to define "smart" infrastructure, the opportunities it offers, and the challenges posed by its implementation and governance.
Through a series of presentations and panel conversations, audience members will:
Learn from leaders with experience implementing digital solutions and projects in the transportation, water, energy, broadband, construction and other sectors;
Hear economic development leaders make the case for technology-rich regions;
Share in insights from experts dealing first-hand with how to fund and finance smart infrastructure,
Discuss the critical role of cyber-security and data protection and how to secure digital and connected infrastructure systems;
And, how to ensure that its impacts and benefits are shared equitably and governed democratically.
