Title: An Overview of Smart Cities Five to Ten Years Out in a Post Pandemic World

The current pandemic is accelerating the need for cities to transform from independent transactional environments of siloed city operations into open data and digitally interconnected cityscapes.

This presentation is based on findings from a recent research report prepared by a team from Global Advantage, an Ottawa based management consultancy, for a federal agency.  The approach was an internet-based literature review on smart city technologies and trends out to 2030.
This talk will touch on the organization and structure of Smart Cities, the technology components to become a Smart City, Smart City technology trends, and a systems view of Smart City applications with examples in ITS, eHealth and energy.
Peter MacKinnon has a background as a scientist, business manager, entrepreneur, domestic and international bureaucrat, executive, diplomat, management advisor, and academic; including affiliation with Telfer, the Faculty of Engineering, and the Institute for Science, Society and Policy at the University of Ottawa.
He is a pioneer in the commercialization of AI and today is actively involved in ethical and policy issues related to AI.  He has been involved in Smart Cities initiatives since the mid-1990s.  He has an extensive background on the forefront of scientific and technological breakthroughs around disruptive technologies and their impacts on society and has contributed to building various national technical assets such as Canarie, CIRA, and Compute Canada.
