E-Sports: The World’s New Favorite Pastime?
Dr. Dirk Baldwin
Data analytics, e-tickets, and fantasy sports are examples of how digitalization has already changed sports and the fan experience. What is next? 232 million online viewers and 174,000 arena viewers recently watched competitors play electronic sports (Esports). Are Esports the next step in sports evolution?
The Smart Cities vernacular has become a prolific phrase in our community over the last year. Join us to consider the various issues raised by the development of wired and integrated cities. We offer a general education course, CPS 103 - Introduction to Smart Cities, which includes and encourages community participation at weekly brown bag lunches. These events are free and open to the public. You do not need to register or sign-up ahead of time--feel free to just show up!
