“All roads lead to Rome! All silicon roads lead to San Diego!

San Diego is strategically positioned to become the world’s first fully autonomous city. By developing a Silicon Road connected to a Smart Border with Mexico, we will attract the most talent engineers and technology companies to Southern California.

The Silicon Road A fully autonomous global vehicle network is an inevitability, however San Diego’s leadership in this sector is not! By forming a consortium of business leaders, engineers and local governments, we have an opportunity coordinate a Smart City effort that will transform our economy and position San Diego as a global engine for innovation in Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity and embedded systems. .

Pioneering a Smart Border

San Diego’s the most dynamic border in the United States. With millions of products going to and from Mexico, it is also becoming the most congested. With traffic increasingly becoming San Diego’s most acute problem, we need a revolutionary re-imagination of our transportation network. A smart border + silicon road will not only solve congestion, but will allow for local entrepreneurs and companies to pioneer and sell this infrastructure to 1000’s of sister cities around the world.
