Driverless Cars, Drones, Urban Air Mobility, Cryptocurrency, Artificial Intelligence – What Will the Next 5 to 10 Years in Smart City Technology Bring?

The term “City of Tomorrow” conjures up images of a futuristic world where vehicles travel, by land or air, to their destinations, with no driver or pilot in sight; where artificial intelligence creates tech-savvy buildings, robotics allow for more rapid construction and more efficient inspections and operations, and virtual reality creates vivid sensory experiences for users who never have to leave their homes.

How close are we to the City of Tomorrow? Join our guest speakers from government and academia, along with Akin Gump’s multidisciplinary team, to discuss the legal, regulatory and business opportunities, impacts and requirements incorporating a range of new technologies, including: autonomous vehicles, augmented/virtual reality, UAVs, eVTOLs/Urban Air Mobility, traffic management, 5G networks and the Internet of Things (IoT), parking, lighting and energy efficient infrastructure, and high speed and other alternative transportation conveyances.
