06T - Toronto: Smart & Connected Tour - Walking Tour

24 May 2018 8:30 AM - 11:15 AM

2.5 Con Ed Learning Hours

This year, Toronto was named by Google's Sidewalk Labs as their flagship city to develop Smart City technologies. This tour will explore that partnership, on the building and neighbourhood levels, tying the concept back to the city as a whole. Starting in the heart of Toronto's new connectedness, with context given by Waterfront Toronto, the tour will visit both the east and west edges of the core neighbourhood. Visitors will have the opportunity to envision future high-tech projects while standing in Waterfront's newly-build urban spaces. Moving inside with an explanation of WaterPark Place III, Cisco's intelligent building showcase, it will wrap up with a few words from the City of Toronto, indicating how the strategies being implemented at Waterfront will inform the direction of urban development and intelligent community initiatives throughout the city as a whole.
