The International Wireless Communications Expo was recently held in Las Vegas, attracting more than 8,000 government, public safety, transportation, and utility professionals to learn about emerging technologies that depend on or support wireless communications. Everything from 911 to commercial aviation has communications at their core, and the work carried out by people (and increasingly by machines) is being improved and made faster with Artificial Intelligence (AI), sensors (Internet of Things) and cloud computing. City employees, Joanna Wadsworth, and Don Jacobson made a presentation at the expo introducing the City's Innovation District and the multiple projects focused on making the city "smart" which rely on cutting edge wireless communications technology. Another hot topic was the increasing use of drones and relaying information gathered by them back to decision makers such as first responders. Again, the City is at the forefront of exploring how drones can improve operations and services provided to the public.
