Now that the City of Philadelphia nabbed some recognition from the Smart Cities Council, we have about a zillion questions: How soon can we see actual smart city features across Philadelphia? What will they look like? How can all citizens back that effort?
Lucky for us (and you), there’s a meetup sesh happening on Feb. 22 that focuses solely on what Philadelphia is doing in the field of smart city readiness.
The next session of the Philly IoT Meetup, happening at Bresslergroup, will feature Ellen Hwang, the city’s Program Manager for Innovation Management, in the Office of Innovation and Technology. Hwang is the program manager for the Smart City Initiatives.
“All cities are increasingly becoming more connected and Philly’s efforts in this area will impact the lives of all citizens in obvious and non-obvious ways,” said the meetup organizer Lenny Kravets.
Kravets said he hopes folks interested in smart cities will show up and ask questions.
