With a backdrop of rapid technology change and the increasingly direct impact of consumer choice, Beca's CIO, Dr Thomas Hyde, presents his thoughts on what it will take to prepare for our future city life. He describes,what we can do already, as we develop our smart cities and what we need to do now to create vibrant liveable cities for future generations.
Thomas will talk about how we integrate technology into the more traditional engineering sectors, such as transport, water, and the opportunities emerging for more informed and collaborative decision making.
