The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas has long been a mecca for techies. Every year, crowds descend on practically every convention space in Sin City to see the latest and greatest products, from helicopters to smartphones. But global conglomerates and small start-ups alike are eager to attach the “smart” label to something new: cities and buildings. Autonomous vehicles (AVs) have been leading the charge vis-a-vis smart cities, with companies like Ford fully embracing how AVs can reshape how we live, work, and play.

While public sector employees were present at CES smart city panel discussions, with one even delivering a dire warning on smart city cybersecurity, architects were largely absent. The true advent of many of these technologies is still many years away, though the challenges and benefits are already clear for all to see.
