Liveability & Safety through Smart Connected Infrastructure

Intelligent Interconnected Infrastructure offers greater security and liveability during daily life or critical incidents like flooding, fire or intruder attacks. On-off automation, operations and monitoring systems control efficiency of water, electrical, gas, transportation and telecommunications so only limited city segments cease operations and needed resources are diverting elsewhere.

Diversifying YYC's Workforce & Digital Fluency for Students

Calgary currently lacks the ICT talent to bring itself into the future. There are existing efforts to create the infrastructure needed for tech giants to operate in Calgary, but we need to offer formal and informal computer science learning opportunities for all citizens. By 2020, we will teach coding/robotics in schools, quadruple computer science graduates (currently graduating only 1000 per year) and create a culture... more »

Democratizing nature for a smart, healthy city

Blockchain

I believe that the City of Calgary could best develop a proposal for Smart City funding if it were to commit to developing capabilities for the development and deployment (the tough part) of blockchain technologies. This is not about one particular project per se, but rather a commitment to build upon the City's current capabilities in blockchain and create highly visable, highly valuable, cost-effective projects that... more »

Become Canadian leaders in dementia care

Create dementia villages with services, amenities and environments that provide an alternative to hospitalization or institutionalization and provides full scope of support and care for all vulnerable dementia patients and their families. Nobody should suffer from dementia without the benefit of a caring community. Calgary can become a leader in giving people with dementia the dignity they deserve.

Understanding Air Quality

Imagine if every digital sign in the city was eager to share the current air quality. What if drivers could see the immediate impact there actions are having on the environment around them? I believe if we educated our citizens on how air quality fluctuates through our the day, like at drop off time at an elementary school people might change their behaviour.
