Speaker Series: Rubicon’s Michael Allegretti to Speak at Smart City Expo World Congress

WHO:

Michael Allegretti, Chief Strategy Officer at Rubicon (Twitter, Blog)

WHAT:

The smartest run cities are those that anticipate the needs of citizens before they call—pushing governments from being reactive to proactive. With city budgets constantly being squeezed as tax revenues become tighter, cities today are required to do more with less. What if the garbage truck could do more than simply pick up the trash and help keep neighborhoods clean? What if these same trucks could simultaneously be transformed into roaming data collection centers? Waste and recycling vehicles are the only vehicles in the world that go down every street of a city at least once a week. They don’t discriminate by zip code, district, or any number of other factors. Imagine that garbage truck being able to identify broken streetlights, potholes, graffiti, and abandoned buildings, and push that data back to the city. Rubicon is making this happen. Join Rubicon’s Michael Allegretti for his discussion “How Technology is Transforming Waste and Recycling Operations Into a Smart City Solution.”
