Wharton-Weitzman Future of Cities Conference 2024 – Feb 9

Posted by Wharton Future of Cities Conference on January 30, 2024

Join us for the 5th Annual Wharton-Weitzman Future of Cities Conference, Embedded Environments: Making the Invisible Visible.

The Wharton-Weitzman Future of Cities Conference at the University of Pennsylvania is a premiere platform that brings together those who want to make cities better. The ubiquity of technology from how we commute to how we prepare for natural disasters is restructuring society in real-time. As we embark on this new era of urban living, it is crucial to dive into the transformative potential of embedded technologies, those seen and unseen, that are shaping our cities.

With the theme Embedded Environments, our 2024 conference will investigate the multifaceted implications of the internet of things, artificial intelligence, and other urban technologies on our natural and built environments. The conference aims to foster an in-depth understanding of how these technologies can revolutionize aspects of city life while also addressing their downsides. By exploring global topics such as climate resiliency, public safety, urban design, and the influence of algorithms, we will engage in critical discussions and workshops to envision the future of cities.

Students, professionals, and academics from all disciplines are encouraged to join us. Every ticket includes access to all programming as well as breakfast, lunch, a coffee bar, and happy hour. Please get in touch with any questions: whartonfuturecities@gmail.com.

Date and Time: Friday, February 9, 2024, 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM
