Event Details:
We stand on the thresh hold of abundance. The technological advances in sensors, connectivity and data now provide a perfect storm of change - for smart cities, smart workplaces, smart education, and smart communities. Yet, time and again, poor decisions derail this potential. In order to move forward, we must be both the architects and the engines of change. The question before us is: Can we improve the quality of our decisions in order to move forward faster? The Savantas Institute is very honored to have invited Professor Kincho H. Law, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Dr Martha G. Russell, Executive Director of mediaX, from the Stanford University to give us a talk on the topic of “Smart Cities for Smart Living”. They sincerely invite you to participate in the seminar.
