About this event

Cities are in a constant state of evolution, there have been many failures in the past but the positive side to failure is that it frequently points the way forward. It is hard to imagine what it must have been like to live in London without a well-developed sewer system. Cities are made up of many different systems that deliver services quite effectively, nevertheless we could make huge improvements in the delivery of these services. To name a few such city services we have: Energy systems; Healthcare systems; Social services; Transport; accident and emergency; Financial services, Water and Waste; Tourism and Visitor… the list goes on. To date each of these city services has tended to operate independently but there is a significant push by governments around the world to integrate these services using the Internet, this is a huge challenge that if successful could transform the way we live. The lecture will look at current progress and opportunities.
