2017 Smart Cities Speaker Series at Atlanta City Hall

The Georgia Institute of Technology is hosting an inaugural Smart Cities Speaker Series at Atlanta City Hall. Each month, researchers from the Georgia Tech Institute for People and Technology’s Smart & Connected Communities Data Pilot Grants Program will present their interdisciplinary research to the City of Atlanta to gain valuable feedback on their work.

In 2017, IPaT awarded the first Smart & Connected Communities Data Pilot Grants to provide funding to further interdisciplinary research within the area of Smart & Connected Communities. The result of the program will be new collections of smart city data that can be made available to the Georgia Tech research community and new prototypes for working with data.
