On Aug. 18, the Urban Information Lab hosted the Smart Cities and Generative AI Symposium. Interdisciplinary professionals across academia and industry gathered to inform, examine, and discuss how generative artificial intelligence impacts our cities. Topics included Smart Resilience, Smart Mobility, and Large Language Model (LLM) Applications. Some highlights of the day included an opportunity to see Frontera, the world’s most powerful academic supercomputer! This event was a part of A Good System for Smart Cities, a core research project of Good Systems, a university-wide, interdisciplinary research grand challenge focused on designing ethical AI technologies for the benefit of society.
Speakers came from many different places, including Austin locals from the City of Austin and UT Austin, and people as far as the University of South Florida and Vanderbilt University!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the event!
