On this week’s Talking with Mayor Peduto we discuss two major innovations in technology that occurred in Pittsburgh. The first was the establishment of Pittsburgh’s first Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute (known as ARM), with support from the Department of Defense.

The second innovation was the announcement a new global partnership between CMU and Tata (a large, India-based company). CMU and Pittsburgh beat out 2 other major competitive cities and universities including, San Francisco/Stanford and Boston/MIT.

Finally, we talk briefly with Mayor Peduto about a new police pilot program that has officers going “back on the beat” in local communities throughout Pittsburgh.
