LECTURE: CONNECTING PEOPLE IN THE CITIES OF THE FUTURE
There are new technologies that are emerging to help people deal with transportation, housing, the economy, and security. This includes cloud services, mobile technology, autonomous vehicles, intelligent traffic signals, and security robots. These tools will help people manage the logistical problems of urban living and keep them in closer contact with one another. Some cities already are implementing these innovations while others are in the planning stage.
