Profound advancements in computational power and artificial intelligence will enable cities to analyze those data sets to improve delivery of utilities, public safety, transportation, and facilities services while balancing the challenges of managing open data along with policy, citizen engagement, and regulatory hurdles. This panel will bring together city officials, analytics providers, and investors to discuss what AI services and support cities need, how they are turning open data into deep knowledge, while also addressing the cybersecurity and privacy concerns associated with these technologies.
