The Future of Smart Cities
The Future of Smart Cities:
Spotlight on Infrastructure
May 16, 2017 | Washington, DC
Two-thirds of the U.S. population now lives in cities—a figure projected to continue to grow in the years to come—and with this continued urban growth comes new infrastructure challenges. As a result, federal and local leaders are reconsidering how to build more intelligent infrastructure, from how we design and construct buildings to the ways we move people and products.
As part of Infrastructure Week 2017, Bloomberg will gather federal and local leaders for a conversation on the critical infrastructure challenges facing cities and states around the country and how local government leaders are using innovative technologies to improve America’s infrastructure and build more sustainable urban environments.
