Join KC Living Lab at the first Smart City Tech Summit

Smart City Public Safety Technology SummitOn March 29 – 31, 2016, Kansas City will host the first Smart City Tech Summit focused on public safety. This 2.5-day event will bring together public safety experts from around the world to share real-life insights, best practices and lessons to help protect our citizens from domestic terrorism and active shooter threat scenarios. This summit will showcase a purview of pioneering technologies in Smart City public safety from industry-leading tech companies to early-stage startups that community leaders, schools, companies and law enforcement officials need to be aware of to make their communities safer.

Smart City Tech Summit’s primary goal is to educate municipal leaders, critical infrastructure executives, law enforcement, school administrators, large technology providers, emerging technology innovators and others, to improve responses to domestic terrorism threats that often involve an active shooter situation. The event will include a keynote address from John Penn II, Senior Computer Scientist on Photoshop and the Senior Solutions Architect for Law Enforcement for Adobe in Silicon Valley.

Mr. Penn has spent more than three decades writing software and exploring the role software plays in the prevention and investigation of internet crimes against children, and crimes involving digital media. He has been instrumental in the development of advanced victim identification tools and techniques, and as a digital forensics expert who provides the necessary implementation and training for police officers and federal agents.

On the last day, attendees can experience a full-scale technology demonstration of an active shooter response by the Kansas City Police Department, along with recently declassified technologies for public safety, including satellites, drones, sensors, predictive analytics and more.  Space is limited for this session.

The KC Living Lab is extending a special invitation to join us at this pioneering Smart City event. You can purchase your Summit Passes now.  Early-bird pricing ends on March 1st.
