How will we run the cities of the future? Play the innovative, real-life EY Future Cities Simulation

The EY Future Cities Simulation is a 4-hour, interactive, digital experience that takes place over multiple rounds. Through the gamification of city management, the simulation allows participants to build a vision for the city of the future, all while navigating everyday challenges such as managing finite resources and balancing various stakeholder expectations.

Acting as city management, participant teams run Futopolis, a modern city on the verge of change. Over each round city leaders “manage” the city, addressing different scenarios related to city technology/data, connectivity, accessibility, environment, society and infrastructure. Teams then see how resilient their city is over the next 10 years. Within each scenario, participants not only address policy, budget and stakeholder expectations, but they must also address unexpected disruptive events impacting the city’s affordability, amenities, safety and more. The simulation allows participants to discuss and gain insight into how to achieve a city’s economic growth goals, while also addressing citizen wellbeing and Futopolis’ long-term sustainability.

Game on, let’s play!

Monetizing right of way – financing smart city investments through broadband P3s

A perfect storm is happening in telecommunications. Massive growth in data usage, forthcoming wireless 5G, Intelligent Transportation Systems and Connected Autonomous Vehicles are greatly enhancing the value of rights of way for communications services deployment. Public sector owners of right of way have the opportunity to structure agreements with private players that will facilitate the building of core networks needed for smart city deployment. Depending on the local conditions, these agreements can often be done at no cost to the state, municipality or DOT. It can even become a source of revenues. This roundtable dialogue will address how to maximize these tools both financially and in terms of social benefits to communities.

Securing Smart Cities – What will it take?

The path to a fully connected city presents opportunities and challenges. There are two key challenges that arise from a city turning smart on the security front viz., information security and privacy. Concerns around security include illegal access to information and attacks that cause physical disruptions in service availability and reduce the quality of life of citizens affected either directly or otherwise. Smart energy meters, mass transport monitoring systems, smart grids and command and control infrastructure are all vulnerable to multi-modal attacks and illegal ex-filtration of data. How can smart cities protect their infrastructure from persistent cyber-attacks and what will take to deter and deflect hackers? This session will offers answers.

Intel PPP Interaction Discussion

Smart Cities hold the promise of making life better – safer, more productive and a lot more hassle-free. However, in order to realize these benefits and more, upfront funding allocation is needed so that the underlying solutions and technologies that lead to these improvements can be deployed. Funding new and innovative projects can be a challenge for many cities, and Public-Private Partnerships (3P) offer the potential to deliver innovative funding options that can be a win-win for both the city and corporate partners. Hear experienced practitioners discuss their success stories and key learnings from the 3P process, and bring your own ideas and thoughts to this interactive discussion facilitated by the Intel Smart Cities leadership team.

The Future of Mobility is Connected, Autonomous, Shared and Electric

The future of the traditional transportation industry is in question, shifting from a business of building and selling assets to offering consumers transportation-as-a-service and new mobility experiences. Innovative technologies – AI, big data and blockchain – and disruptive trends including the sharing economy are converging to enable never-before-possible modes of transportation and mobility experiences. What can we expect the future of mobility to look like?

Urbanization and changing consumer expectations are forming a new mobility ecosystem that sets the stage for immense innovation. Top-notch industry experts will drive this panel discussion analyzing key trends such as the convergence of mobility and energy industries to enable new solutions for urban transportation. An interactive discussion will follow, giving participants the chance to contribute to the debate and generate new ideas to reimagine the transportation in our cities.
