Panel: Transformation of Cities

Smart and resilient communities have recently generated much expert, practitioner, and public interest in their push to transform and improve how we as a society live, work, and play. It aims to utilize data and technology to improve city operations and accountability, strengthen urban resilience, better engage with citizens, and drive economic development.
