Esri Joins Smart Cities New York 2018 Conference

Esri Experts to Demonstrate How The Science of Where Will Be at the Heart of Smart City Tech

Redlands, California—Esri, the global leader in spatial analytics, will join this year’s Smart Cities New York conference, to be held May 8–10. Experts from Esri will be on hand to discuss how the company’s GIS technology is poised to be at the forefront of smart cities, a revolution in civic innovation.Cities everywhere are implementing innovations like Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, artificial intelligence, and open data hubs to bring infrastructure, public services, and culture into location-based connected networks. This transformation is enabling governments and citizens to access information more easily and to build communities that respond directly to the needs of citizens accurately and in real time. With major cities like New York already embarking on pilot programs to integrate advances like autonomous vehicles, intelligent utilities, and 5G wireless networks, location intelligence will serve as a crucial tool for smart communities in the future.
