IoT & Sustainability: Practice, Policy and Promise
When: May 12 from 2:00 – 5:00 pm, Reception to follow
Where: Banatao Auditorium, Sutardja Dai Hall, UC Berkeley
The “Internet of Things” (IoT) has become a buzzword for new technology platforms designed to monitor infrastructure and measure performance across complicated systems. Rapid global urbanization, along with mounting concerns over use of natural resources, make the application of IoT for cities and sustainability a promising nexus for innovation.
The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Banatao Institute will host a symposium dedicated to exploring the promise of IoT platforms for managing energy, water, and transportation in the urban environment. The symposium will highlight emerging technology for smarter cities, raise questions regarding privacy and security, and address issues of data collection, storage, and interoperability. Leaders from academia, industry, and government will discuss technology-enabled opportunities to promote sustainability and business, and how these exciting developments can be implemented to improve efficiency and civic health. CITRIS will present preliminary insights from a study of IoT for key sectors for urban planning and sustainability.
