Webinar: Synergies for the Latin American Urban Tech Initiative

The Latin America Urban Technology Initiative proposes the creation of a research center at MIT, focused on doing cutting edge research in regards to the convergence of digital technologies and the future transformation of cities in the Latin American region. The proposed initiative will be launched by the Senseable City Lab, leveraging the research portfolio performed by the lab as well as the multidisciplinary expertise of the research team for the transference and creation of novel scientific knowledge and technologies aimed at improving urban conditions and the quality of life of cities in the region. Challenges such as environmental pollution, traffic, health services and informal settlements are key to the development of the second most urbanized region in the world, and can be improved through the use of data science methods and the use of digital technologies. Our workshop, in collaboration with MIT-ILP will focus on presenting the opportunities that this initiative can bring to companies from the region, through a series of lectures showcasing the type of research projects that the initiative can fuel, and an open discussion with participants, aimed at identifying potential opportunities for impact and collaboration.

Webinar: Fireside Chat on Global Strategy for AI and Data

There is agreement among political leaders that the systems of international coordination (tax, trade, currency, crime, etc.) need to take advantage of new technologies such as Central Bank Digital Currencies and to implement new data control regulation for both privacy, security, and national defense.  Consequently, there will be new "rules of the road" for commerce and infrastructure controlled by digital systems. However, there are competing system proposals in different regions (e.g., China, EU, and the US).  How does this change a companies' global strategy?  What do you need to do to prepare for this, and what new opportunities are opening up?

Webcast: AI and Autonomy

The impact of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems is real and tangible. Across all industries, businesses are designing and developing intelligent and autonomous systems to help create innovative products and to increase operational efficiency. Nevertheless, there still remain many questions along our collective journey of exploration, for instance: Will our new understanding of natural intelligence change the paradigm of future AI? What are the promises and perils of autonomous systems and how should we prepare ourselves to address them? What are some of the emerging technologies that may help create better AI and Autonomous Systems? What are the areas of research and development that we haven’t yet paid enough attention to?

Webcast: Challenges and Opportunities for Sustainability

Here at MIT, sustainability can mean many things. New materials for everything from electronics to infrastructure which are both functional and kind to the environment. “Green” government and corporate policies which regulate energy and greenhouse gas production. Innovative urban planning for a city of the future which is efficient, but also accessible and abundant. Whether stated in economic, environmental, social, or technological terms, sustainability is the capacity to endure – to consume, grow, and thrive – but not to be consumed and perish in the process. Join us for this two-part webinar series which explores how MIT and its community of researchers and corporate members are leading the way in sustainability research. This webcast will be followed by an Interactive Discussion for LP Members-only webinar on March 11.
