As our cities and public infrastructure gets smarter – from digital advertising and public WiFi to sensing and mobile, location-based services – our experience of neighborhoods, places, and spaces is transforming.

Come learn how making our spaces more responsive and intelligent creates entirely new kinds of business and design opportunities.
