New technologies can now help cities make real-time, data-driven decisions and track how they deliver services. From street sensors that help manage traffic to streetlights that can respond to emergency services and other events, cities have the opportunity to change how we interact with them. San Jose has created a new vision to be a leader in this new global push for “smart cities.” Come learn about the city’s plan, how it's being implemented and what is on the horizon.
