Immersive technologies to empower sustainable & inclusive cities
September 22nd 11am PST/ 2pm EST
Since 2007, more than half the world’s population has been living in cities. This is projected to rise to 60 percent by 2030. Toward the SDG #11 goal of making cities inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable, Facebook offered an AR Developer Challenge to several US smart cities which brought together developers, artists, entrepreneurs, city officials, and more to develop concepts for improving the lives of their citizens using Augmented Reality (AR) technology. Join Facebook’s Director of FRL Policy and representatives from the cities of Raleigh and Town of Cary, NC, and Philadelphia, PA for a discussion on the influence of emerging technologies, and hear how AR tools and programs are changing the landscape of cities today.
