About this event

TECH AND SMART CITIES

Overview:​ At this exclusive panel event, we host thought-leaders from DC's leading tech industries to explore new intersections between their field and technology. They will focus on themes such as sustaining new civic hacking efforts, emerging modes and sites of engagement, the role of governments in urban technological change, and more. The panel will be moderated by Kevin Morgan, Director of Tech Sector Attraction & Retention at the Washington DC Economic Partnership.

What You’ll Take Away: How governments, civic hackers, and data scientists are using technology to reshape cities and the lives of residents. Gain insight and inspiration from experts in specific fields and hear first-hand how technology is transforming their work. Expand your understanding of today’s tech-based world, and fuel your own ideas for the future.

Why It Matters: The omnipresence of technology has rapidly transformed lives over the last decade (remember, the iPhone was only released in 2007). Now, it’s rare to go about a regular day without interacting with tech — whether it’s an alarm app that wakes you up, your Nest Thermostat-regulated apartment, or the software you use at work. Staying ahead of the innovation curve and being able to predict the future of tech in various industries has never been more important — both at work and at play.
