Where The Robot Meets the Road
Thu, March 30, 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
Where The Robot Meets The Road
The rise of Uber and advent of autonomous vehicles herald a new era in urban mobility while threatening to disrupt public transport infrastructure. How can cities reconcile these competing models while preserving the public interest?
The format of this event will be a participatory panel discussion led by our Urbanist-in-Residence Greg Lindsay, in conversation with:
- Zack Wasserman, Head of Global Business Development at Via On-Demand Transit.
- Corinne Kisner, Director of Policy and Special Projects at NACTO.
- Varun Adibhatla, Founder of ARGO and Adjunct Instructor at NYU's CUSP.
This event is our kickoff event of our monthly URBAN-X Dialogue Series. During these events we will hold off-the-record, participatory conversations to discuss critical questions around the impact of urban technologies in our lives. We believe that dialogue is a fundamental element for understanding the complexity of our diverse personal universes, and the starting point of better solutions for a brighter urban life.
