The technology of the future, such as register-free grocery stores, may be coming soon to an area near you, but local business leaders are not sure it is a good idea for the average Houstonian.

During a December 6 luncheon hosted by the Urban Land Institute, retail executives from across Houston gathered to discuss the effect that coming modern technologies, such as driverless cars and high density, mixed-use developments will have on Houston – and whether they are in fact desired by Houstonians.

The panel discussed how local preferences will ultimately influence how best to integrate new services with the desires and wants of the average Houstonian in a way that can move the city forward.

A comprehensive article on the forum is available online via the Houston Business Journal.
