CLOUD CITY

The proliferation of cloud technologies and capacities have myriad implications for cities. Creative tension exists between IT executives’ need to maintain safe and secure operating infrastructure, while also providing the flexibility, mobility, efficiency, and capabilities of constantly evolving point and enterprise solutions – both public and internal facing - that bring tangible value to citizens’ lives in the realms of education, public safety, health, transportation, and other modern government services. How are cloud services transforming cities and what implications are there now and in the future in terms of service levels, costs, effectiveness?

TRANSFORMING TRANSPORTATION

Autonomous vehicles, popularly known as self-driving cars, have the potential to create unprecedented opportunities for resolving previously intractable transportation challenges. Automated vehicles, which can perform safety-critical actions, including steering, throttling, or braking without direct human input, can radically transform our movement in the Smart City and our overall quality of life. But many anticipate possible downsides including dramatic increases in urban sprawl, mass collisions due to software errors, and cyber and security threats. This panel aims to explore the potential impacts of vehicle automation on mobility, policy making, infrastructure, car-sharing services and pedestrian behavior.

TECH TALK: IoT AND THE FUTURE OF CITIES

The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to enable the sustainable development of smart cities. IoT offers the ability to measure, infer and understand the delicate ecosystems of urban environments and better accommodate the pressures of urbanization. The proliferation of communication and sensor devices, and the possibility of fully integrated private and public clouds, is helping IoT to transform entire sectors, including energy, transportation, and public safety. This panel will identify challenges to IoT’s potential impact, such as the heterogeneity among connected devices, the maturity of cognitive management frameworks, and the openness of IoT infrastructure.

PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS (P3): FINANCING THE FUTURE

Governments at all levels are increasingly considering the use of public-private partnerships (PPPs) to leverage private finance to support public infrastructure development. PPPs are an effective and established strategy for procuring infrastructure, but not all projects have been successful for either government, investors or the public. As part of this panel the critical success factors of economic and social infrastructure projects using PPPs will be examined, including risk sharing, political support, and transparent procurement. Join this panel to better understand the key drivers of successful implementation of a PPP strategy and how PPPs are helping to drive Smart Cities.

COMMON GROUNDS

Urban public spaces provide an array of benefits that supports our physical, psychological, and social well-being. Planning officials are attempting to apply social–ecological understandings in order to shape the urban form and function along sustainable trajectories. In many cases, however, involving citizens in creating locally desired amenities is challenging, and the benefits of open and green spaces are not equally distributed across diverse urban populations. Join this panel to explore the links between the urban green space, the promotion of social equity and environmental justice, and the themes of local democracy and community cohesion in the creation of smart cities.

INTEGRATED URBAN MOBILITY

The new mobility is about getting from everywhere to everywhere. Technology is an enabler of choice and has facilitated new forms of mobility such as ride, car, and bike share. Conventional wisdom tells us that these modes compete with public transit systems, but do they? Many mobility firms are embracing transient advantage, focusing on innovative partnerships to continually build new competitive edges. Join us in discussing how mobility solutions are making cities smarter and impacting citizens' decisions on travel.SPEAKERS Dan Curtin Vice President, Fleet and Supply Chain Zipcar Jay Walder CEO Motivate Aaron Landry General Manager car2go North America Kristof Vereenooghe CEO EV-Box MODERATOR Greg Lindsay Connected Mobility Initiative New Cities Foundation

LARGER THAN LIFE SCIENCES

Technological innovation in life sciences is integral to making cities "smart". Increased advances are being made in "wet" R&D labs and new organizational structures are being created to support multi-stakeholder partnerships. The impediments for creation of enabling environments often involve lack of funding for university research teams; pressure on pricing from industry partners; disagreements on IP ownership; and excessive bureaucracy from government funding resources. Join this panel to discuss how to promote pro-technology cultural values to spur innovations in health, agriculture, medicine, and other areas of life sciences.

CYBER CITY

Think of the effects of smart parking, smart traffic lights, or free public Wi-Fi on your personal city experience. Or consider what better-informed trash removal systems, water management applications, or electricity services could mean for our environmental footprint. The impact of this new kind of communication, enabled by the cloud, can be massive - but so is the potential risk of living a fully networked life. Issues of privacy, security, and system vulnerabilities need to be urgently addressed in order to be prepared for an imminent reality.

GROWING UP SMART IN NYC

By 2050, 70% of the world’s children will be living in cities. Many urban children grow up with poverty, poor health, inadequate nutrition and “toxic stress” – all of which disrupt early brain development. The speakers will describe how cities, parents and communities can partner to address these problems, and how cities must coordinate services across sectors to improve the lives of their very youngest citizens. We will explore the science of early childhood development, NYC’s efforts to reach the most vulnerable children, and a new global network of cities created by the New York Academy of Sciences.

ANTICIPATORY URBAN DESIGN FOR THE AGE OF AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES

Technological breakthroughs are rapidly advancing autonomous vehicle technology: prototypes are on the road today, new companies are forming, and novel car designs are emerging. Your current car may even be enabled with some degree of self-driving functionality. With these advances, society is warming up to the fact that driverless, electric, and (ideally) shared cars will be part of our mobility landscape sooner than we once thought. Carmakers, ride-sharing services, real estate operators and retail distributors are creating the technology to deploy and charge fleets. The ‘age of autonomy’ is fast approaching… but are cities ready? This workshop will present technologies, trends, dangers and opportunities. We will challenge participants to collaboratively design their future: one where autonomous mobility systems augments urban design, planning, and civic life. Participants will reimagine the city of the future in anticipation of autonomous mobility systems. They will brainstorm and collaboratively build rapid prototypes of new and smarter streetscapes, systems, building typologies and services that will accompany the biggest shift in urban mobility since the advent of the automobile.

USING BEHAVIORAL INSIGHTS TO IMPROVE PUBLIC POLICY

The Behavioral Insights Team (BIT) is an international organization working on achieving social impact. Originally set up in the heart of the UK government as the world’s first policy unit dedicated to applying behavioral economics and psychology to improve public policy. BIT is active across a wide range of areas at different levels of government in the US and around the world, BIT devises new ways to make the public service work better for the people it serves. Typically, we tackle small components of large issues—often involving ‘touchpoints’ or concrete interactions with the public—to drive change incrementally but quickly. For example, by making small changes to tax letters requesting payment, we brought forward an additional $300 million for the tax agency in the UK. By modifying SMS text messages sent out by a US city, we increased the number of low-income residents signing up for a free doctor’s appointment by 40%. By modifying an email invitation to prospective job candidates in the UK, we eliminated the race-based attainment gap in a police recruitment test. This 2-hour workshop offers Smart Cities NYC´17 participants an introduction to BIT as well as a hands-on opportunity to use our methods to directly address a real-world policy challenge with insights drawn from the science of decision-making. Our workshop begins with an engaging 45-minute introduction to behavioral science and past examples of BIT’s work. The workshop will then transition to an interactive series of group activities focused on a specific policy challenge (e.g., how can get high school seniors from low-income households to apply to college?). Simulating our in-house creative process and our belief that people actually learn by doing, we facilitate group activities to brainstorm and assess ways to apply behavioral science to redesign a specific policy touchpoint with testable real-world implications.

DOES BIGGER DATA MEAN BETTER LIVING?

Ninety percent of data in existence were created in the past two years. The size and cost of data storage has fallen by a third every year since the 1970s. Machine-learning algorithms can process and analyze data at a scale and speed that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. The implications of Big Data, we are told, will reach into every aspect of our economic and social life in the Smart City: from employment to healthcare to policymaking. While considering the potential impacts of Big Data in a broad sense, this panel looks specifically at urban governance processes that produce, utilize, exchange, and monitor contextual knowledge in relation to quality of life, economic development, and the city ecosystem. The discussion will review the capacities, and challenges of Big Data applications and consider their effects on inclusive and sustainable urban development.

THE REPOSITIONING AND REVITALIZING OF CITIES

Cities need to be innovative in retrofitting, redeveloping, and regenerating their brownfields, greyfields and existing buildings to encourage movement of population and investment inwards rather than outwards. Innovative urban infill approaches are required in the creation of smart cities, especially as land resources are limited in many high-density municipalities. Faced with high population growth, an aging urban infrastructure, and changing socio-demographics, planners, policymakers and real estate owners must address the deterioration of the physical and social space of significant portions of the urban fabric. This panel will highlight how cities are being revitalized through repositioning buildings and large scale mixed-use developments that incorporate new efficiencies and technologies and help to spur job creation.

WHO HOLDS THE KEY?

As cities are increasingly becoming both a site and object of capital accumulation, the challenges for creating, preserving, and improving affordable housing and neighborhoods have grown. Apartment properties that provide decent, affordable homes to households with modest incomes are an essential element for maintaining communities of opportunity as they connect residents to the jobs, schools, and social capital that enables them to thrive. This panel addresses the potential for organizations in different sectors to develop innovative, effective, and progressive practices to contest the impact of aggressive private equity investment in the rental sector, and discuss policy opportunities to ensure that one’s zip code will not determine one’s destiny in the Smart City.

CITIZENSHIP 2.0

Smart cities bring with them the promise of a new period of participatory government. Urban activists have long sought for an open civic space for articulating their ideas and ideals, a space that can be found online with the advent of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). Civic associational practices have arguably already been altered significantly and these changes are in turn transforming the civic space as a whole. Join this panel to learn about how technology is creating smarter cities through increased civic engagement, the deployment of data and evidence to support critical human rights issues, and the establishment of new collaborative partnerships to cultivate social capital.

OPEN MINDS, OPEN DATA

The aim of any Open Data initiative is not simply to throw datasets onto a website, but to build a sustainable ecosystem around data that supports social, economic, and environmental benefits in smart cities. A true data ecosystem has the potential to reshape urban democracy by facilitating civic deliberation and participation that can redefine urban progress and success. What can we learn from the successes and failures of earlier waves of data enthusiasm? What are the drivers, structures, and dynamics of Open Data initiatives that generate sustainable value? And what are the best measurable indicators to look at when assessing the impact of such initiatives? These questions and others will be debated followed by a concluding discussion.

SAFETY FIRST

Rapid adoption of intelligence analytical capabilities by different levels of law enforcement have produced a fair amount of "technological determinism" - an unquestioning belief in the power of technology to deter crime. But does it really work? Does video surveillance, for example, reduce aggravated assault, auto theft, or larceny incidents at their viewshed areas? And if it does work, are the success stories take into account the ramifications of such technologies on issues as neighborhood profiling and the reinforcement of class and racial divides? Join this panel to explore the most up-to-date discussions regarding data collection, public safety, and ethical conduct as cities move to become smarter.

KNOW YOUR CITY: EXPLORING NYC BUILDINGS WITH OPEN DATA AND PYTHON

Mayor´s Office of Data Analytics

How many buildings are in New York City?

If you work for a municipal government, depends who you ask – or rather, how you ask the question. Several New York City government agencies collect and act on data about buildings across the city. Depending on an agency’s operational need, a building can be represented in elevator inspections or air rights; emergency exits or construction permits; tax lots or tenant demographics.

The Mayor’s Office of Data Analytics (MODA) is New York City’s ideas incubator for operational analytics. Its mission is to promote creative analytical thinking across City government and improve how data is used to in government operations. MODA partners with City agencies to create, test, and improve models that deliver measurable value to services.

In this workshop, MODA will provide an overview of how it has helped improve the City’s “building intelligence” with analytics models that tie together datasets from a variety of operational agencies. Representatives from MODA will guide participants through a series of exercises using open source tools and Open Data to better understand how to understand New York City buildings – and showcase how MODA used the very same methods to make City operations faster, more efficient, or more equitable.
Note: Participants should come prepared with a laptop with Python 3.6, Pandas, and Jupyter installed (we recommend installing this package; instructions and troubleshooting will be provided before the session).

MANAGING THE RAPID PROLIFERATION OF IOT AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES

Mayor´s Office of Technology and Innovation

By 2020, it is estimated that the number of connected technologies, commonly known as the Internet of Things, will exceed 50 billion.
When used effectively, these devices—like sensors that measure air pollution or lights that only turn on when someone is in the room—can produce cost savings, bolster civic engagement, and strengthen public health and safety. As cities move towards the future, municipal leaders must also be cognizant of—and actively mitigate—the challenges and risks raised by these technologies, most notably in areas of public privacy and security.
This workshop will showcase efforts by NYC, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Chicago and leading cities to responsibly manage and accelerate adoption of IoT and new technologies.

Presenters:
Jeff Merritt, Director of Innovation for the City of New York
Jeff Merritt helped establish the Mayor’s Office of Technology and Innovation and coordinates NYC’s smart city efforts, including the testing and deployment of IoT and new technologies. He holds a Master’s degree from Columbia University and more than 15 years of leadership experience driving social change in the public sector. Highlights include helping organize the first entirely online public election in U.S. history, laying the groundwork for the world’s largest, fastest municipal Wi-Fi network, and leading the creation and adoption of new guidelines and tools to promote the responsible and equitable expansion of the Internet of Things.

Ger Baron: Chief Technology Officer for the City of Amsterdam
Ger Baron’s professional career started at Accenture, where he worked as an analyst in the consulting department. In 2007, he was hired by Amsterdam Innovation Motor (AIM), specifically to develop and enhance the role of ICT.

ENABLING ENTREPRENEURSHIP: A CONVERSATION WITH EBAY

When people think about entrepreneurship, they often think of venture capital-backed startups in Silicon Valley or Silicon Alley. The reality is, today’s entrepreneur – anyone from any background – has more opportunities available to them than ever before, in large part due to technology. Technology is a powerful enabler of economic opportunity. In New York City and across the globe, people are increasingly turning to entrepreneurship as a pathway to financial independence, and modern ecommerce technology makes it possible for a diverse mix of entrepreneurs to develop low-cost, enterprise-quality businesses today. In this conversation, hear from multiple New York-based entrepreneurs with diverse backgrounds. They’ll discuss some of the challenges they faced when building a business from the ground up, some common misperceptions about entrepreneurship, and the role technology and online marketplaces plays in fueling their success.

THE NEW ENTREPRENEUR ECOSYSTEM

New entrepreneurship ecosystems are removing barriers to entry for startups, mothers, veterans, the formerly incarcerated, and others to enter / re-enter the workforce. Entrepreneur support organizations such as accelerators and incubators function in making cities smarter by serving as intermediaries between entrepreneurs and the resources of the local ecosystem. This panel examines the differences in why and how these support organizations engage in inclusion efforts. Inclusion demands intentional, flexible, context-appropriate strategies aimed at shifting the dynamics of the status quo. What are the cultural, normative, or regulatory forces that encourage economic inclusion efforts in ICT in one local community but not in the other? How come despite policy commitments to gender and racial equality in the ICT sector, significant gaps persist between policy and reality? And what are the best practices in sharing economic gains and opportunities in the tech sector that allow for broader and more distributed overall prosperity?

As these materials break down, they produce a potent mixture of methane and carbon dioxide known as "biogas". If unmitigated, biogas emissions are a major climate liability, but if captured, biogas can be used to generate power, heat homes or — if refined and compressed — fuel vehicles. Moreover, if separately collected and processed at wastewater treatment facilities or dedicated anaerobic digesters, the remaining "biosolids" can be used as nutrient-rich compost and soil amendments.

This Smart Cities workshop will address the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead for sustainably managing municipal organic waste, with a special focus on the two valuable products that can be created from this waste stream: carbon-neutral biogas and nutrient rich compost.

GEOTHERMAL FOR COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS: 40% HEATING AND COOLING ENERGY REDUCTION

Consulate of the Netherlands

In its 80by50 vision New York City focusses to fully utilize geothermal heating and cooling to reduce (peak) energy consumption by buildings. To lower the barrier for adoption New York City is launching a web-based screening tool that gives a first assessment of feasibility on a building and block level. These tools have been very effective in other urban areas, such as the Netherlands, which has fully commercialized renewable heating & cooling. In this interactive workshop we combine the City efforts with the real-life commercial experience of both Dutch and US based property developers.
