Resilience First Briefing in London
Emily participates in Resilience First Briefing in London “Keeping London’s Traffic Moving”
As a previous Board member of London First Security and Resiliency and current Board member of the CSSC – both designed to make London a safer city- Emily attended a session held by Resilience First www.resiliencefirst.org with a profoundly interesting keynote address by Gareth Powell, Managing Director, Surface Transport, Transport for London (TFL). The key take-aways show that TFL has been significantly innovative in technology and AI which manage the transport system that keeps this city moving providing open source data and sharing with and learning from other cities. The sophistication of the monitoring systems, while not noticeable to the average traveler, is significantly valuable to avert accidents and to keep the transport moving with all the events, weather conditions, and normal disruptions.
