With a focus on the nexus of public policy, urban design, and innovative technology, AIANY’s Anticipating the Driverless City is designed to help shape New York City’s discussion on urban transportation, support the growing network of thought leaders around urban mobility issues, and examine actionable strategies for government officials and urban designers. The symposium will bring together thought leaders from across New York City representing industry, government, design and advocacy to discuss recommendations, strategies, and ideas that lead to the best outcomes for our citizens.
The full day symposium begins the morning session at the NYU Skirball Center for Performing Arts for a keynote presentation and in-depth panel discussions. The afternoon session, hosted at the neighboring Center for Architecture includes interactive design charrettes, breakout sessions, exhibits and presentations bringing together thinkers from across the city to develop actionable strategies to prepare for these emerging trends in urban mobility.
