As large U.S. cities set their sights on IoT, AI and other emerging technologies as part of expansive smart city deployments, relatively small Cary, North Carolina is taking the lead by launching small pilot programs that target such real-world challenges such as water usage, waste management, and city-wide parking.  Carys smart city game plan is to find ways to use technology to make it easier and more efficient for residents to access town services and bring together industries, partners and communities to make it happen. By adopting a start-up mentality, the people driving initiatives can think more creatively and develop solutions that provide better services that improve the towns culture. Join Town of Cary CIO Nicole Raimondo as she outlines the technology roadmap for one of the fastest-growing and technologically progressive cities in the U.S.
