Embrace the flux

Over the last few years, change has been ever-present. April Rinne has created her own journey learning how to thrive amid flux, personally and professionally. The trend spotter, advisor, and advocate will be delivering the closing keynote at NPC22. She has researched, experimented, prototyped, and learned from others how to embrace flux, and will share her practical perspective and global worldview.
Implications of artificial intelligence

For planners, AI represents an emerging toolbox that enables a range of new capabilities — from the scalable digitization of physical infrastructure to tools that can help planners synthesize and summarize public feedback. Learn more about the implications of using different artificial intelligence technologies, and how you can ensure they are used responsibly in this PAS Memo.
Future of advanced air mobility

Rapid advancements in technology means advanced air mobility — think flying taxis — is not just for thrilling science fiction stories anymore. See where the technology is going, how close we are to having advanced air mobility land near you, and what this transportation and delivery option means for planners today.
