Smart Cities Tech International Symposium

January 19, 2022

Mobility21 UTC researcher and Community College of Allegheny County Professor of Advanced Technology Justin Starr participated in a panel discussion about the risks and security concerns where AI meets critical infrastructure at the 6th Annual Smart Cities Technology International Symposium.

Metro21 Executive Director Karen Lightman also hosted a panel at the symposium entitled “Smart Isn’t Smart Enough – Redefining the Smart City Through Co-Creative Partnership,” where the discussion focused on how the  pandemic has shone a bright light on the inequities that lie within our communities, particularly low-income communities and communities of color, and we must turn our focus to creating equitable and sustainable communities for all through co-creative partnerships between academia, government, non-profit and the private sectors.
