WEBINAR: PLAY IN OUR SMART CITY FUTURE

As technology continues to advance across the globe, there is a growing trend for cities to become smarter. This includes having wifi hotspots and technology integration in public spaces including parks.

These technologies, and the data they gather, provide the platform for new forms of urban analysis as well as the production of more efficient spaces. While there may be questions and reservations about integrating technology into public spaces, there is no doubt this trend will continue to grow.

In this online event, we will delve into not only the basics but also the more technical aspects of interactive play and explore and answer a range of commonly asked questions.
