May 9, 2019 from 2:00 PM–3:00 PM

As AI, machine learning, IoT, and other emerging technologies proliferate into every area of our lives, they will make staggering demands on infrastructure, including transportation, electricity and broadband. Public and private entities need to act now to create an equitable and electric eMobility plan—an e2Mobility plan—to prepare for the tsunami of change that will occur over the next decade. Failure to do so could result in fallout ranging from economic damage to further social and geographic inequality.

In this webinar, participants will learn:

  • How emerging technologies will affect various aspects of critical infrastructure
  • Key policies and initiatives that need to be prioritized to ensure scalable mobility growth as new technologies demand more resources
  • Opportunities and risks that lie ahead in creating an e2Mobility plan
