Atlanta Convenes: IoT/Smart Cities Gamechangers from Around the Globe are Solving the Most Pressing Issues of Our Time

By Cynthia Curry, Director of IoT/AI/Smart Cities Ecosystem Expansion, Metro Atlanta Chamber

The U.N. predicts that almost 70% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. Metros across the globe are faced with challenges around sustainability arising from such rapid growth. Issues of safety, transportation, sustainability, equitable housing/infrastructure and workforce development are topics of discussion across the globe. Many communities are looking to technology to help them solve these challenges and “redefine smart” to focus on citizens more than technology. This September, gamechangers leading the way on these initiatives will assemble at Smart City Expo Atlanta (SCEATL) to discuss how a city can only be “smart” if they are focused on equity, prosperity, humanity, inclusion and justice, as well as cutting-edge technology.

On September 10th, partners from IoT.ATL, leaders in smart city technology, and community mavericks will converge at 725 Ponce in Atlanta to celebrate the innovation of Ponix Farms and the opening of the first IoT.ATL Living Lab!

Ponix, a winner of the IoT.ATL AgTech Challenge, is identifying scalable AgTech solutions to address the need for resilient food systems and illuminate how technology can be used to solve the pressing social issues of our time. Through this lens, they will change the future of food and urban agriculture to benefit communities across the globe as the world urbanizes. Ponix is developing end-to-end local food ecosystems focused on reclassifying food as a utility, much like water or electricity.

Thank you to our core partners; New City Properties, Georgia Power, Invest Atlanta, AGCO, Metro Atlanta Chamber, City of Atlanta, and the Atlanta Beltline for their tremendous support and sponsorship.
