What will drive the cities of tomorrow?

Areas of Study , Featured Events IT / Information Systems | Apr 16, 2012 |

What will make the New York of 2025 tick?

What will influence how the Berlin of 2074 operates?

What will determine how well the Shanghai of 2139 serves its residents?

The answer, in large part, is technology — especially information technology. The way we harvest, process and use information has the potential to radically improve the way cities run. And, thanks to a partnership between Fordham’s Center for Digital Transformation and IBM, you have the chance to be part of the group that is watching, shaping and implementing the technologies that will underlie the “smart” cities of the future.

The entire Fordham community — Gabelli and GBA students, faculty and alumni — are invited to the next Center for Digital Transformation conference devoted to this topic. Learn how information technology is triggering real change in the areas of building design, health care, transportation, urban planning, traffic flow, energy, the urban environment and more.

Cities that run more efficiently and effectively can provide people with better lives. The Center for Digital Transformation uses business research and insight to help make urban areas more habitable and sustainable, therefore offering a higher quality of life for city-dwellers around the world. CDT conferences and symposiums, like this one, bring interested parties together to talk about challenges and opportunities, with the overall goal of fostering change and promoting social justice.

Please take a moment to register for the May 11 gathering; note that admission is free but space is limited.
