Montgomery, Alabama, is a 2019 Smart Cities Readiness Challenge winner and Smart Cities Council partners have the opportunity to participate in the city’s Readiness Workshop on July 25, 2019. Partners may attend the workshop on a space available basis. Also, based on their expertise, partners may have opportunities to present relevant case studies or serve as subject matter experts during breakout sessions.
For the past several years, Montgomery has been working to advance its smart cities vision through strategic partnerships, building relationships with the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce, Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base, Alabama Power Company and others. It’s using A.I. technology to proactively assess road conditions, replacing a time-consuming, labor-intensive process, and partnering with schools, community centers and others to extend Wi-Fi access to all students.
The city’s priority areas are Digital City Services, Economic Development and Education and Workforce Development. These will serve as the focus areas during the Readiness Workshop with the goal being consensus building and the development of action steps.
