Like many other fast-growing urban centers, my hometown of Austin, TX has reached a historic tipping point triggered by Austin’s rapid urbanization. Austin City Leadership recognizes it must engage in vastly new approaches to adjust and calibrate to social and economic challenges amplified by the lightning speed of technical and industrial advances. To address these challenges, Austin is taking a big leap into the Smart City pond.
Austin’s goal is to transform into a more responsive and efficient Smart City with a focus on building a Digital Society. Austin City Leadership believes this Smart City transformation will create new pathways for improving the quality of life for Austin residents and visitors.
