Brookings Smart cities & AI Panel Webcast
February 11, 2019 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Smart cities and artificial intelligence
By 2050, it is estimated that around two-thirds of the global population will live in metropolitan areas. The advent of widespread urbanization will raise many challenges in terms of housing, transportation, public safety, resource management, and sustainability. To help manage these issues, many cities are utilizing new digital tools such as sensors, artificial intelligence, data analytics, and advanced networks. However, these innovations raise complicated questions regarding effective and equitable deployment, financing, digital access, privacy, ethics, and public oversight.
On February 11, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host a panel to discuss the future of AI in metropolitan areas, focusing on AI as a tool for integrating information, coordinating services, and improving leadership decisionmaking. Panelists will discuss the impact and implications of AI for governance, economics, and society.
After the session, speakers will take audience questions. This event will be live webcast. Join the conversation on Twitter using #SmartCities.
