DCX 2018: Responsive Cities over Smart Cities from Max Oglesbee
Without people, smart cities are just slabs of concrete with sensors. With urban populations rising, new connected tech promises to make cities more efficient, sustainable and livable. But adapting to a 21st-century world takes more than IoT, big data or arrays of sensors. What if the vision began with people instead of tech? The largest private real estate development in US history, Hudson Yards is a test ground for the world’s most ambitious responsive community. To deliver on the promise, the foundation must be the experience--for residents, tenants, employees, and visitors. This session will explore the vision, platform and the people needed to create a responsive city with a soul.
