CWIC: Track 5

Intelligent Cities

Register your interest for CWIC 2020

More than half the world’s population live in cities and urbanisation is advancing rapidly. Smart technology and digital abundance have the potential to revolutionise the way cities operate. Successful cities provide opportunity and amenity – from which stem innovation and entrepreneurship, jobs and economic vitality, learning, recreation, social care, artistic creativity and cultural richness. These benefits are enabled by social and physical infrastructure systems that are closely integrated and mutually reinforcing – a joined-up system of systems. At CWIC we explore the key drivers behind establishing this industry and the methods we can adopt to optimise for success.

Technology Integration for a Sharing World

By 2050, the world population will by 10 billion and 70% will be Urbanites. Technological innovations for sharing assets and resources will be vital for ever-increasing population densities. Implementation of new technologies will be accelerated by IP agreements between multiple parties, each specialist in physical infrastructure, sensors, telecomms or data processing technologies such as AI. Innovators will therefore need to understand what IP can be protected, pitfalls of multi-party agreements, and that any patent-protected technology may later be declared ‘standard essential’. Marks & Clerk will discuss the benefits and licensing obligations arising from IP for Smart Cities
