Most of the popular conversation around AVs touches on either technical capabilities or safety. But what are the second and third-order complications when autonomous vehicles become commonplace? How will inexpensive and continuous delivery change retail business models? How will autonomy change real estate patterns in urban cores and exurban peripheries? And how will investors choose to bet on these new possibilities?
We dived into these thorny questions on Wednesday, August 19th, on an important episode of CoMotion LIVE: Follow the Money: How AVs Will Reshape Cities & Society.
Join AV experts and provocative thinkers like Henry Greenidge, Fellow-In-Residence at the NYU McSilver Institute of Poverty Policy & Research, where he focuses on the intersection between race, poverty, transportation, and urban technology (and former head of regional public affairs for Cruise); Karina Ricks, Director of Mobility & Infrastructure for the City of Pittsburgh; Anthony Townsend, author of Ghost Road, a new and acclaimed book analyzing the profound impacts of the autonomous revolution; and Kevin Webb, Co-Director of SharedStreets, an organization that builds software, digital infrastructure, and governance frameworks to support new ways of managing and sharing the data that keeps cities moving.
