What is the future of smart cities?

Join us in South Lake Union for our fall symposium. Smart Cities: Critical Infrastructure Protection – Opportunities and Challenges .

The future for cities is smart: urban areas where people and systems are more connected than ever before. Head to toe, from home to the office to the grocery store, technologies like wearable sensors, autonomous systems, and augmented reality are transforming the way we connect with each other and our surroundings in new and exciting, but also potentially challenging, ways.

This symposium is organized by Ann Lesperance, Director of the College of Social Sciences and Humanities at the Northeastern-Seattle campus.
