INTERVIEW
In Conversation: John Paul Farmer, CTO, NYC by Smart City Expo Atlanta
September 23, 2020

John Paul Farmer is Chief Technology Officer for the City of New York, leading the city’s efforts to use innovative technology to provide better services to all residents. Mayor Bill de Blasio appointed Farmer to the role just over a year ago in April 2019. Since then, Farmer has focused on making New York future-ready, a challenge that has become even more critical in the midst of a global pandemic, economic crisis, and fight for racial justice.

I am thrilled to welcome Fira de Barcelona to host the only U.S.-based Smart City Expo in Atlanta. The focus on cutting-edge technologies, smart city innovation, and equity and inclusion directly align with our One Atlanta vision of affordability, resiliency, and fairness. We look forward to hosting cross-sector leaders from around the globe to this internationally-recognized summit. Keisha Lance Bottoms Mayor
City of Atlanta
It’s imperative that mayors remain on the cutting-edge of advancements and Smart City Expo Atlanta allowed us to experience emerging technologies and concepts firsthand. I want to thank Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, other city leaders, and Aarti Tandon for organizing such an exciting and well-planned expo. Kirk Caldwell Mayor
City of Honolulu
Technology is empowering local leaders to reimagine what’s possible in their communities. However, smart city solutions will only reach their full potential if they’re deployed in a way that is both equitable and transparent. Smart City Expo Atlanta brings together elected officials, thought leaders and technologists to do just that. Clarence Anthony CEO
