Smart City Symposium: Building Sustainable Cities of the Future
Smart cities apply innovative technology solutions to building design, energy, environment, health care, transportation and urban planning. The key objective is to transform cities through technology today to make them more habitable and sustainable. This symposium brings together faculty, students, practitioners, companies, non-profit agencies and city government to discuss the contemporary opportunities and challenges in the application of digital & information and communication technologies in building smart cities. The overall goal is to promote social justice. New York City provides us with this great opportunity to examine the concept of a smart city.
