Metro21 Panel to Discuss Smart Cities at Modeling the World's Systems Conference in Washington D.C.

On May 13 – 15, 2019 in Washington D.C., the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Computing and Information is hosting the Modeling the World’s Systems Conference.

The goal of the conference is not academic but rather to convene stakeholders from government, industry, non-profits and academia who are committed to rational analysis and management of complicated systems. The conference will recognize and mobilize a community of stakeholders, and organize a professional society and develop modes of communication, survey the state of the art in technologies for modeling and managing complicated systems, and discuss important applications.

Metro21: Smart Cities Institute will be leading a panel to explore real-world use cases of applying technology to improve decision making in a wide array of applications and implications.

The Metro21 panel entitled “Enabling a Systems of Systems in Smart Cities Through AI” on May 13, 2019 will include:

  • Karen Lightman, (Moderator) Executive Director, Metro21: Smart Cities Institute, Carnegie Mellon University
  • Stephen Smith, Research Professor, Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University
