IoT Smart Seminars: Coming to a city near you?

Fri, 2015-05-01 12:05 -- SCC Staff

Verizon smart cities experts have embarked on an eight-city tour across the U.S. to demonstrate how the Internet of Things (IoT) can make a positive impact on local communities and help leaders use their resources more efficiently.

“With limited resources, municipal leaders are being tasked with finding ways to make their communities more efficient,” said Dan Feldman, director IoT Smart Cities at Verizon, a Council Lead Partner. "Towns and cities can start with projects like energy-efficient smart streetlights, car sharing and smart parking. The cost savings and revenue from those projects can then be used to help fund bigger projects, including tackling pollution and upgrading transit infrastructure.”

Tour schedule:

  • Memphis, TN - 4/30
  • Boston, MA - 5/7
  • San Jose, CA - 5/19
  • Chicago, IL - 6/5
  • Tampa, FL - 6/12
  • Indianapolis, IN - 6/16
  • Phoenix, AZ - 6/23
  • New York, NY - October TBD

Keynote speakers will include:

  • Jennifer Belissent, Ph.D., Forrester Analyst
  • Daniel Burris, Futurist, Technology Strategist, and Trends Forecaster
  • Ruthbea Yesner Clarke, Research Director, Smart Cities Strategist, IDC
