i5 Talks is a quarterly technology talk show organized by Tech Mahindra that showcases innovative ideas that incite, ignite and inspire people to create better society by using technologies. We have covered interesting topics like New Age Learning, Social Networking, Impact of cable digitization, M2M, etc. in our previous editions. The current (Fifteen) edition of i5 Talks is being organized by Tech Mahindra Innovation team and Vishakhapatnam Council. The theme of this edition is “Smart Solutions(Smart City offerings/Digital/IOT/Cyber Security)”.
Global urbanization, increasing levels of affluence and resource constraints mean that systems (such as energy and transport) which underpin everyday life in city regions are under increasing pressure to satisfy demand. In response, so-called smart solutions have been developed in various locales to help resolve such strategic challenges.
However, the contribution of smart solutions to the development of sustainable cities is unclear. On the one hand, smart solutions can increase the efficiency of electricity production and consumption, as well as facilitate small-scale low carbon generation. On the other, smart solutions can create a number of opportunities for new products which induce energy demand. In this contribution we therefore begin to explore and unpack the relationships between smart solutions and sustainable cities from this edition.
We have invited eminent speakers consisting of senior leaders from the industries, Academia, Government officers and Startups based on Smart Solutions, to speak and be part of session.
