Exploring ways to support cities to adapt to smart technologies.

Olamide will discuss the difficulties in adapting to smart technologies and the need to develop holistic data solutions for cities to support smart technologies.

His presentation will focus on the solutions that cities can incorporate, such as aligning incentives on energy clocks, recalibrating legislative institutions, and creating viable channels to turn data into impact.

The webinar will last for approximately one hour, including a Q&A session.
