This is the coolest project I have ever seen in my life. IBM‘s project: The Smarter City is a way to use data to improve the efficiency of Cities, their focus is on cities because for the 1st time in history, more than 50% of people on the earth live in cities…which, also for the 1st time in history includes me.
This video explains how they’ll make transportation more efficient, with real-time capabilities. But, the project includes more than just transportation. It covers improving Education, Healthcare, Energy & Utilities, Public Safety, Development. They all require collaboration and connection between all integral functions of each city.
IBM is definitely onto something big. I am so excited that this is happening. Efficiency and Collaboration, my two favorite things all working for a greater society. You can find more information about the project here. I hope Chicago’s on board with all of this!
