ОтУС представляет открытую лекцию одного из ведущих мировых экспертов в области инновационного развития городов Билла Хатчисона. Тема лекции: «Creating Tomorrow’s Smart Cities: Toronto’s Waterfront Revitalization». The Impact of the Internet, the Web, Social Networks and new forms of social communication like Twitter is having the same kind of impact on the world as Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press with moveable type. Except the changes are being compressed into 15 years instead of 400 years. When we add the opportunities from ultra-broadband at 1 Gigabit per second into our homes and high performance computing we are truly entering revolutionary times. A number of cities and communities around the world are taking advantage of these opportunities including Toronto Canada’s revitalization of 2000 acres of its waterfront. This lecture will describe the social, economic and environmental strategies, plans and progress of Toronto’s waterfront revitalization. William G.

Waterfront Toronto has a mandate to revitalize 800 hectares of derelict waterfront land immediately adjacent to downtown Toronto. When the project is completed more than $35 billion will have been invested to create homes, offices and parklands for 120,000 residents with 20,000 employees working in the knowledge economy industries. Bill was previously Global Chair, Telecommunications Industry and National Director, Telecoms, Media and Technology for Ernst & Young and during his career he has been the founding CEO of four successful business start-ups and CEO of three corporate turnarounds.

Bill has been recognized for his work in the Smart City/Intelligent Community field by receipt of the first Lifetime Achievement Award granted by the New York based Intelligent Community Forum. He was named as “One of the Top 35 people in the World to watch in Real Estate Technology in 2009 and again in 2010” and in 2004 he was named “One of Canada’s Top 30 Movers and Shakers in Information, Communications and Technology over the past 30 years”.
