Smart Cities May 2019: Urban Environmental Challenges and Policy Solutions
From Danielia DeLorenzo
This is the eighth video segment from a conference at Princeton University on academic “Smart Cities” research and its potential relevance to New Jersey’s urban centers.
With the expectation that cities will house 70 percent of all people by 2050, cities, industries, universities, and governments are bracing for rapid urbanization. Representatives from industries and universities discuss the challenges future cities will face. Broken into two parts, the first group of speakers focus on policy adaptations to combat urban challenges. The second group of speakers name specific environmental challenges and proposed solutions.
“Building the Future: New Technological Frontiers in Cities” was a showcase of New Jersey university research regarding integrating urban infrastructure with networked sensors, data analytics, and other novel technologies to improve quality of life, resiliency and sustainability in urban environments.
A key objective of the day was identifying new opportunities for collaboration between universities, industry, foundations, and government in this important field.
The multi-institutional conference was organized by Princeton’s Office of Corporate Engagement and Foundation Relations and the Metropolis Project, with support from Lyft. It was held on May 6, 2019.
