2:45pm – 3:45pm

City Hall

 

Director Eui-Sung Yi will moderate a panel for TechLA’s The Connected City this Saturday at City Hall.

 

The Connected City:

A city is a physical, cultural, communal, social, mobile, and digital experience. Los Angeles is a city its residents and visitors connect with through culture, by walking, by traveling on vehicles and bikes, with media, and over the Internet. In short, LA is wonderful, complex, and interconnected. This panel will explore how technology is changing how we relate to our city and its many aspects. How is architecture accommodating personal mobility with smartphones? What happens when the buildings, people, vehicles, and things are connected wirelessly in the “Internet of Things?” How will urban planning incorporate online communities? How can the city use technology to bring better livability, sustainability, and resiliency? What will a “city” be in the future where every person is connected the cloud, connected to each other over social networks, and connected electronically to the physical city itself?
