loomberg Philanthropies and the Aspen Institute will marshal cutting edge data and facilitate an innovation process that helps city leaders consider the many ways this technology could solve chronic urban challenges, and improve the lives of citizens. To create a cross-sector public dialogue, the initiative will also convene leading experts across a wide range of practice areas to help cities explore the intersections of autonomous vehicles with various policies and issues – from the opportunities that can be created in the areas of inequality and mobility, to the potential challenges autonomous vehicles pose to commuting and public transport.
The Bloomberg Aspen Initiative launched in October 2016 with five inaugural cities: Austin, USA; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Los Angeles, USA; Paris, France; and Nashville, USA. This initiative will support the ten named cities and respond to the tremendous interest and needs of cities around the world. Insights developed during the year-long process will help a broad network of cities proactively and strategically prepare for the integration of autonomous vehicles.
The Bloomberg Aspen Initiative on Cities and Autonomous Vehicles is Bloomberg Philanthropies’ latest Government Innovation offering. Government Innovation equips mayors and other city leaders with the tools and techniques they need to solve urban challenges and improve citizens’ lives.
