Philip Bane, Managing Director, Smart Cities Council
Cities are contending with rapid population growth and dwindling resources. And the risk is rising: there is an increase in climate change-related disasters, exacerbated by poor city planning. To keep pace, we need more food, water, and energy. In fact, on a global scale, according to the Smart Cities Council, we need to build the equivalent of Chicago every month for the next 30 years.
This webinar will look at best practices, standards, and techniques for becoming a smart city – which is defined as a city that uses innovation, technology, and data to accelerate livability, workability, and sustainability.
Today’s smart cities can reasonably predict and mitigate sustainable and resilient solutions through the use of data analytics. Smart cities are discovering cost-effective solutions with a foundation in AI, ML, simulation, and visualization. Now digital twins are being brought into city planning as a way to mitigate risks and manage resources more effectively.
Philip Bane will look at how to leverage data from sensor networks across buildings and cities. He will also investigate ways to remove blockers to city capacity, procurement, and financing. Key takeaways from this webinar include:
- How to treat city-wide data as an asset
- Key drivers and barriers to adoption of digital twins in cities
- Efficient and effective management of digital twins
- Guidance for building command and control architectures and integrating best-of-breed systems
