Smart Cities – Sunny Side Up Speaker Series

What is a “Smart City?”  How can technology help St. Petersburg and other communities address challenges like transportation, water, safety, and education?

The new Sunny Side Up Speaker Series, sponsored by the St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership and USF St. Petersburg Kate Tiedemann College of Business, tackled this and other questions.   The event speaker Bill Wallace, Executive Director of US Ignite, shared guiding principles for smart cities and examples of what other cities are doing.
