Tech Talks will take place during the second press day and will condense a series of complex issues into two individual ‘byte’-sized 20-minute talks moderated by Girsky and professors from NYU. The NYU Tandon School of Engineering is considered a leader in the study of smart cities and the developing technologies that will make them smarter. Academic and industry presenters will focus on autonomous, smart cities, data, congestion, parking, connectivity, infrastructure, and subscription services.
