The City of Long Beach (CA | Population = 466K), believes technology can improve the lives of its residents. We can drive real change can if we work together to solve problems and test out solutions while prioritizing data privacy. To test out this theory, the city launched its Smart City Initiative in 2019. The Long Beach smart city team is focused on exploring solutions to the most pressing civic challenges by engaging with the Long Beach community and technology companies.
