We live in the Age of Digital Information. Every part of our city – our buildings, services, transport and movement – can be recorded, designed, controlled or monitored using computer technology.
Individually these pieces of information are smart – we can manage building energy systems, traffic lights and the movement of buses. The spread of new technologies and the coordination of all this data has the potential to make cities even smarter. NLA’s 'Smarter London' Insight Study explores how data, technology and analytics are changing the way we design, build and manage the city.
This major half-day NLA conference forms part of the series of events exploring a ‘Smarter London’ and will bring together engineers, planners, smart technology providers and key London thinkers to examine London’s development as a smart city. How do we build a ‘Smarter London’? What are the key policies and initiatives currently in place for the city? How can we improve the way we design, plan for and manage the city?
