Hear from one of NZ’s leading Smart City Practitioners, who explores how data and new technologies can make our cities smarter, safer places for us to live, work & play.
What’s it all about?
Following on from last year’s popular Techweek event in Dunedin, SIGNAL ICT Grad School is pleased to bring to Christchurch an event featuring Wellington’s Tim Packer, who explores how data and new technologies can make our cities smart, safe places for us to live, work & play.
This session will cover:
What is a Smart City?
Do we really need Smarter Cities and are they here yet?
What’s working and what’s not?
Tim Packer, co-founder of BucketLabs and former head of Smart City Solutions at NEC NZ Ltd will take you on a journey into an emerging toolkit of new technologies being applied for smart city purpose, give a critical assessment of the overall progress being made by the smart city movement, and the challenges and opportunities they face.
Tim will also offer an alternative view and practical approach that may facilitate the next major breakthroughs required to ‘move the meter’ on smart city ambitions.
This session includes plenty of time for questions from the audience, but seats are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.
