Described by many as a new Davos, the non-profit SmartNations Foundation (SNF) launches on 12 November 2019 at Digital Infra Montréal when pioneers of the global SmartCity space will gather to tackle and debate issues facing the industry. Leading experts will cover a variety of topics from advances in technology and available solutions that can mitigate risk, to ensuring legacy infrastructure can handle the impacts of climate change.
The SNF launch is spearheaded by SNF co-founder and CEO André Eidskrem (also CEO of intraHouse), co-founder and COO Bruce Taylor and Roger Strukhoff (CEO of Tau Institute for Global IT Research), who will share the SNF goals of accelerating the adoption of 21st Century technologies.
Topics to be covered by the SNF team
include sustainable energy and infrastructure; SmartCities’ programs needed to
enable the sustainable digital transformation of societies and economies in the
fast-evolving global “4.0” era; and, the expansion of SmartCities’ projects at
regional and national levels within emerging and developed economies and
SNF keynote speeches will cover the
management of KPIs to reduce the carbon emissions of IT infrastructure; the
impact low latency gaming will have on digital infrastructure; and, the
importance of fiber availability in the growth of the networks.
In addition, SNF will announce details of
the first Smart Nations Leadership Symposium on “Sustainable digital
infrastructure and platforms enabling extended Smart Cities”, in cooperation
Infra Partners, scheduled for Spring 2020.
SNF is adopting intraHouse
SmartCity platform intra.work
to build the new community, facilitate innovation, communication, collaboration
and management of SmartCity projects in one safe, single place in the cloud,
accessible via desktop and iOS and Android apps.
