As people flock to the cities and new technology continues to develop, how can we focus innovation to improve our chances of a sustainable future?   Our sci-fi vision of a world with driverless cars and completely interconnected "smart" cities is almost here now! Autonomous vehicles, touted to be one of the most disruptive technologies in our lifetime, are highlighted as the best way to tackle the negative impact cities have on the environment. What other solutions can we employ?   The challenges ahead include how data can be used from self-driving vehicles going to improve traffic congestion and  impede accidents, and who owns it. What existing cities of today can do to stay competitive with the new cities of tomorrow designed for emobility,     These interesting challenges are being tackled by smart city experts from the public, private and the investment community. Join Women in Cleantech & Sustainability to explore the opportunities and challenges ahead for autonomous vehicles and what is next for smart cities. Our panel is composed of UrbanLogiq, Urban Innovation Fund, and San Jose Transportation Department top professionals who will share their insights on what smart cities are doing right and their look-ahead on the future of transportation:   Speakers: Mark Masongsong - UrbanLogiq CEO Jule Lein - Urban Innovation Fund Managing Partner Jill North - San Jose Transportation Department Innovation Program Director Greta Knappenberger - Verizon Smart Communities Product Marketing Manager, Smart Traffic Moderator - Kelly Ratchinsky - UrbanLogiq, Technical Consultant   Mark Masongs
