Smarter Cities Challenge: A Conversation with City Leaders
With an estimated one million people worldwide moving into cities each week, experts predict the global urban population to double by 2050 to 6.4 billion—making up 70% of the total world population. IBM’s Smarter Cities Challenge (SCC) grants to 100 cities around the world are enabling cities to make transformational changes which have resulted in many new insights. Hear directly from a panel of city leaders whose cities have won SCC grants. These city leaders will discuss what they have learned in their own urban laboratories and the changes and improvements they are making as a result of their projects.
