ABSTRACT

The rising tide of machine learning and artificial intelligence are forming a terrific toolkit for making the city run better, faster and cheaper, not to mention improving public safety by detecting and responding faster to threats. The same exciting technology development, however, may have drastic impacts on the people, businesses, and institutions that make up the community. As machines increase their ability to learn, human beings and their organizations will have to make big changes in how, when and where we learn. This workshop shares the experiences of cities that are using technology to create prosperity for their businesses and citizens. They are turning education at every level into a ladder of opportunity. They are generating innovation across private and public sectors. And as today’s digital technologies become the artificial intelligence of tomorrow, they will be positioned to thrive economically, socially and culturally in a global marketplace.
