Building A Smart Community
February 19, 2021 @ 3:15 pm – 4:20 pm PST
Technology Management Distinguished Speaker Series
An interdisciplinary forum for the application of innovation,
technology, and management towards addressing diverse
challenges and building sustainable value in business and society.
There is a pressing global need for infrastructure. The challenge is to deliver this infrastructure in an affordable, socially equitable and
environmentally sustainable way. The impacts of climate change and urbanisation pose significant challenges to governments and the
infrastructure community. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates that the spending required to meet the UN’s Sustainable
Development Goals in 2030 amounts to US$2.6tn. This talk will explore these challenges and the ways in which technology and smart
communities can be an important tool in addressing them.
