Since the dawn of aviation, people have dreamed of the day when flying machines were part of everyday life and routine business. Early science fiction silent movies like Metropolis, The Jetsons cartoon, and even Back to the Future tapped into our fascination with flying cars. While the dream remains alive, the practical application is still in the future.
It wasn’t too long ago that people were fixated by the Jetson cartoon, watching in awe at the possibility of a futuristic lifestyle filled with flying vehicles and automated machines. Little did we know that innovators were already in motion towards making autonomous vehicles a reality. The earliest concepts for self-driving vehicles began taking root in the 1980s. Ever since then, it’s been nothing but progress for this fascinating development.
Ever hear the term, “smart cities,” and think what exactly does that mean? This innovative way of living is being fueled by the evolution of AI, having us exist in the “Jetson” era sooner than we thought. Danielle Loffreda, Market Development and Consultant for Ciena introduces us to where smart cities have been and where they are going. Listening in now!
