The world as we know it is changing and the pace will be rapid. Powered by the advances in sensor technology, the internet of things is expanding. The impact will be felt across our northern cities, by our businesses and into our homes. Liverpool is no exception, with initiatives underway across the city that have the potential to forever change the way we work and live together.
