SXSW 2020

Using Tech, Data & Analytics to Make Cities Better


City governments, researchers, companies, and non-profits are learning how to improve safety, mobility, health, and other aspects of cities by using data-driven, analytics-powered techniques and solutions. These smart city approaches will enable us to create integrated, inclusive, sustainable cities—but the problems are challenging, cities are vast and complex, and the technologies are evolving rapidly, making collaboration and information sharing crucial to success. This meetup will foster discussions and connections, and we will share a report of collective contributions and inputs to maximize the benefit of this meetup during and beyond SXSW. Join us as we build on the previous two years of SXSW meetups to discuss needs, share solutions and lessons, and plan for cities around the world.
