Partner Tim Cowen is pleased to be speaking at the upcoming Smart Society Working Group on 5 June 2018. The event is hosted by the Digital Policy Alliance in connection with the Intelligent Community Forum 2018 Global Summit.
Tim will discuss “The Barriers to making a City Smart” and will address various government and industry barriers which stand in the way of developing Smart Cities. Whilst things have come a long way in various parts of the world, some barriers faced by businesses and local authorities in the UK have a wider resonance with inevitable variations. The three panel sessions will explore legal and regulatory constraints, including the recent introduction of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), 5G deployment, and various culture and business processes which may restrain the adoption of smart solutions.

Notes from the event will be provided shortly.
