Wisconsin Idea Smart Future Summit held at UW-Parkside

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Education, business and government leaders came together Tuesday at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside to discuss smart cities.

The Wisconsin Idea Smart Future Summit featured guest speakers and panels. Many of the discussions focused on how smart technology can improve operations and enhance the quality of life for residents around the world.

Racine Mayor Cory Mason says it is important for cities to learn how to benefit from smart technology.

“It allows us to think of ways to pick a couple of goals and really work on them,” he said. “Whether it’s mobility and transit, whether it’s around improving healthcare, whether it’s around sustainability, how do we use technology to build a community that’s more inclusive, more resilient and really wins the future.”

The summit also focused on working with the public and private sectors to discuss technology goals.
