A smart mobility summit is happening within the first Smart Cincy Summit (April 25th)

On WVXU this week, Smart Cincy organizational founder Zack Huhn said, "Last century we automated communication. This century, possibly even this decade, we have the opportunity to automate transportation." The truth is that many of the companies that would have to work together to make that happen will be attending the inaugural Smart Cincy Summit next week beginning on April 25th.

Survival of the Smartest

Survival of the Smartest

The challenges that face cities in the United States today haven’t changed much. Cities still struggle with gridlock and a lack of transportation capacity. Poverty and crime are still widespread problems. At their core, these are simple problems.The problem is that because there are so many more of us than before, the solutions to problems cities face are more complex and costlier. And because population growth isn’t going to slow down anytime soon, cities can no longer take a reactive stance on fixing society’s ills.

Understanding Big Data in Smart Cities

Understanding Big Data in Smart Cities

Step one in smart city planning is analyzing available data to discover opportunity areas that are immediately addressable. When looking through the lens of smart cities, sometimes data is able to solve problems without deploying any hard solutions but by simply identifying a disparity or solution. Data interoperability and protocols are not yet streamlined, but standards and solutions are in the works. Join us at Smart Cincy Summit on April 25th in Cincinnati, OH to discuss Big Data in Smart Cities, Connected Campuses, and Advanced Facilities.
