Nick Bowden (@njbowden) believes that Smart Cities should and can be more than just a network of sensors transmitting data that may or may not be useful. If anyone knows what is possible on the Smart City front, it’s Bowden.
Nick has spent his entire career at the intersection of cities and technology. From public servant to tech company founder, he has seen the impact of technology on and in cities from all perspectives. Along the way, his work and products have touched more than 10,000 public agencies and four million citizens. Most recently, Nick joined Sidewalk Labs, an Alphabet company, to help build Replica, a product designed to change the way cities monitor and plan for transportation and land use.
