Abstract:

According to some estimates, the equivalent of seven New York Cities are added to our planet's population every year-an apt term of measurement, since the growth is mostly in urban areas. Can an already crowded metropolis survive under the strain? This CNBC program explores the intelligent city's answer: we will not only survive, we will flourish. From transportation to public safety to self-aware buildings and smart grids, viewers discover the systems that can make cities of the future both successful and sustainable. Guest experts include Dr. Mitchell Joachim, co-founder of Planetary ONE and Terreform ONE; Michael Chertoff, former Secretary of U.S. Homeland Security; and Dr. Paul Romer, former senior fellow at Stanford University's Center for International Development and Institute for Economic Policy Research.
