Austin Forum: Austin's Acceleration as a Smart City

Austin city leaders gathered to answer the important questions:

  • How can technology help leaders and other decision makers improve smart city planning in Austin?
  • Which smart projects are already underway and which should we pursue to help make Austin more affordable, more accessible, and more mobile-friendly?

City of Austin staff - Stephen Elkins, Chief Information Officer (CIO); Jen Duthie, Intelligent Transportation Systems Engineer; Ben Guhin, Senior Advisor for Design and Technology spoke about their specific areas of activity. Digi.City's Chelsea Collier moderated a Q&A session following the presentations.

The event was hosted at Galvanize by the Austin Forum, a monthly community engagement activity bringing together technology leaders, advocates, and the public to learn about important technology topics every month.
