About the Content:

This session is designed to give Gigabit City Summit attendees an overview of the hot topic of “smart cities” and how the templates for building smart cities are quickly expanding. In North America, cities are starting to join a conversation that has been going on in Europe, South America, and Asia for some time. There are many different models, ranking systems and ideas to coordinate the spread of information. To name just a few:  the Intelligent Community Forum, Boyd Cohen’s Smart City Wheel/Rankings, Smart City Expo, Legible Cities, Living Labs, Cisco, IBM, National League of Cities, US Mayors Conference… and many others. This session won’t cover all of them but will give attendees a good frame of reference for this exciting movement in the U.S. and abroad.
