City life is explored at Town Hall Seattle this Wednesday, March 15 when MIT Enterprise Forum Northwest presents their talk + Networking session: Connected Cities. From Town Hall Seattle:
What comes to mind when you imagine cities of the future? Dystopia or Utopia? A bleak and dark environment, like Blade Runner’s Los Angeles? Or the fabulous, connected San Francisco of Star Trek and Bicentennial Man?
Nearly half of the world’s population lives in a city, so it’s critical that we figure out how to shape the best possible environment. New technologies—like the internet, sensor networks, autonomous vehicles, and smartphone apps—will influence what we create. Join us to learn more about the technologies that will shape everyday life in tomorrow’s connected city.
The event kicks off at 5:30 with some networking, accompanied by a no-host bar and light refreshments. Next up, see a STEM presentation for students. Jimmy Jia will make some opening remarks before the presentation with a Q&A to follow.
When: Wednesday, March 15, doors at 5pm
Where: Downstairs at Town Hall (1119 Eighth Ave)
Tickets are $15 for the event only / $25 for event + pre-event networking
