Sustainable Pittsburgh Conference on Smart Cities
March 6 | 8:00 am - 3:00 pm UTC+0
Exponentially increased computing power has played an astounding role in driving urban growth in the 21st century. This powerful dynamic presents an opportunity to consider conscious urban planning in a new and “smarter,” data-driven way.
Presenters at this year’s conference will discuss these innovative practices and their significant, tangible benefits for cost savings, the environment and social equity. These technologies span many applications, including energy grids, transportation, water utility systems, waste management, air quality, and public safety. Engineers, city planners, and scientists are implementing innovations such as predictive modeling, interconnected systems integration, and near-real-time smart infrastructure data analytics.
Come learn how Pittsburgh and other leading cities are positioning to reap the benefits of smart infrastructure for greater efficiency and quality of life.
