Pittsburgh has rapidly emerged as one of several world leaders in robotics, automation and artificial intelligence, becoming potentially one of the world’s “future cities” while drawing international attention as a proving ground for technologies such as automated vehicles and advanced manufacturing. While we welcome these advances for the investments they are bringing, we are also clear-eyed about what the rapid deployment of these technologies could mean for inequality, employment, gentrification and perhaps the very nature of work in our society. Other cities in the U.S. and the world are experiencing similar changes creating an opportunity to learn. As one of the epicenters of these emerging technologies, we also feel a responsibility to be an epicenter for new thinking about how cities adapt to rapid technological change while addressing social and economic inequality, environmental threats, and the built environment. Cities such as Pittsburgh that are at the center of the innovation economy have the opportunity to become not just economically successful, but also inclusive and just. That belief lies at the heart of our p4 framework and the four essential values of “People, Planet, Place, & Performance.” This third p4 conference explores these issues and seek solutions with experts from around the world and those working right here in Pittsburgh.
