Smart Cities & IoT

Thursday 27th September

What do people expect from their city in the future…

Safety, connectivity, jobs, recreation, entertainment?

So how do cities remain relevant, and attract investment, jobs and establish growing economies.

IoT is helping the world’s cities to do this, on a grand scale, and at a phenomenal rate. Cities around the world are getting “smarter” everyday through the implementation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. 

Smart cities use Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as connected sensors, lights, and meters to collect and analyze data. The cities then use this data to improve infrastructure , public utilities and services, and more. It provides the ability to remotely monitor, manage and control devices, and to create new insights and actionable information from massive streams of real-time data.

IoT creates experiences, efficiency and connectivity for a cities people…. People that drive the economy, spend, invest and create cultural outcomes.

How is Brisbane keeping up to be a Smart City? Hear it from the Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk and join our panel of speakers as they discuss on how smart cities & IoT will change our communities.
