Smart City- Intelligent Ideas
Our First Dean’s Lecture
On May 2, about 30 people gathered to discuss and contemplate the potential of Winnipeg: Smart City- Intelligent Community. It was a chance to start, and continue, the conversation about how we will make our community not only Smart with its adaptation of technology, but also Intelligent in using that technology to improve people’s lives.
According to Stefi Baum, dean, Faculty of Science, “Building intelligent communities is ultimately about lowering the barriers between university, community, government, and industry. It involves some risk and letting go, with much to be gained.”
Let the discussion continue.
