Our Smart Cities collaborative kicked off with an inspiring two-day gathering

The Orwellian cities of the future being designed and imposed right this instant all over the world — so-called “Smart Cities” — will be watching you. In fact, they already are watching you. And unless humanity takes action soon to rein in its would-be omniscient rulers, the technological dystopia being erected all around you will ensure that governments and dictators know virtually everything about everyone — perhaps more than individuals know even about themselves.

Key Takeaways:

  • And with so many new questions looming over federal transportation policy, working together to solve these challenges will be crucial.
  • A truly smart city is one that understands how they can utilize technology to help them get where they want to go.
  • Over the course of two days, each city was responsible for the initial development of an action plan for a specific pilot project.

“A truly smart city is one that understands how they can utilize technology to help them get where they want to go.”
