Register now for the Disruptive Technology and Road Transport event, taking place at New London Architecture on Wednesday February 10. 

With London’s population on course to grow to more than 10 million by 2031, it’s never been more important for organisations to understand how to plan for the future. But with so many developments and kickstarters already being worked on, how do businesses work out whether ipads, autonomous vehicles or hoverboards are the future when thinking what the world will look like in 20 years time?

On 10 February, renowned future thinker Greg Lindsay will be holding a presentation and discussion session with London’s Deputy Mayor, Isabel Dedring and TfL’s Ben Plowden, as the centrepiece of the ‘Disruptive Technology and Road Transport’ event being hosted by the New London Architecture.

London’s population is set to grow to more than 10 million by 2031. How will technology shape our lives as we face this challenge?

Greg Lindsay is a journalist, urbanist, futurist, and speaker. He is a contributing writer for Fast Company, author of the forthcoming book ‘Engineering Serendipity’ and a visiting scholar at New York University’s Rudin Center for Transportation Policy & Management.

Other speakers will include Alan Bristow, TfL’s Director of Road Space Management, who will describe how TfL is developing and expanding its real-time network management and open data offering. (You can read about our roads open data in this post on our Unified API as well as in this post, describing recent improvements we’ve made to this data).

With more people increasingly using mobile devices in every aspect of their day-to-day life, Alan will explain how TfL is working to make its information as easy for customers to access as possible, both through our own services and those of third parties and partners.

This is a closed event, by invitation only and will be an opportunity to hear about imminent developments, debate the direction of travel and help shape the GLA and TfL’s thinking on how to support and respond to the tech sector. Space is strictly limited, so if you’re interested in finding out about how future technology could be used to shape our lives, please email us to request tickets.
