Cities of the Future


In her keynote speech, technology futurist Shara Evans will share the latest insights on smart city initiatives that are being undertaken around the world, as well as her vision for “Cities of the Future”. With an emphasis on global, rather than US projects, Shara will describe cutting edge deployments such as robots doing maintenance on the Sydney Harbour Bridge and work being done in Europe to develop self-repairing cities. She’ll also talk about the collaboration between government, industry, start-ups and researchers that will be required to create a future that we want to live in.

In the software enabled world of the near future, robots as a service will be offered by innovators in a range of industries, autonomous vehicles + drones will communicate with each other and the cloud, all kinds of things will be 3D printed on demand, our homes will contain voice and gesture activated smart appliances, and humans will become increasingly integrated with the ‘net. Strap in: Shara’s speech will take you on a ride into the future.
