    • The cellular information system ensures changes that result in normal development
    • The first system to develop is the nervous system
    • The nervous system detects changes in the internal and external environment and triggers mechanisms to respond
    • The sympathetic nervous system ensures life by maintaining homeostasis
    • Emergent behavior from cellular, tissue, organ and organism’s information systems together ensure life by maintaining homeostasis
    organism organs tissues cells
    • Cities grow without a cellular information system and lack a developed nervous system
    • Cities are not able to have a coordinated response to changes to their internal and external environment sometimes they cannot even detect changes
    • Behavior of cities without a designed nervous system
    • fragmented : multiple independent interaction points; no unity of direction; no shared practices
    • schizophrenic : different response at different times; no integral principle or purpose; no clarity of purpose
    • non-collaborative : attention deficient, indifferent, exclusive
    • Experiences in cities without a designed nervous system
    • information disarray : inability to identify citizens or business; inability to track missions and projects; self destruction through environmental decay and unsustainable practices
    • lack of trust : failure to trust citizens and businesses; failure to be trusted by citizens and businesses long delays : projects off schedule and cost; planning out of phase with reality inability to commit : government and ngos can give little guarantee on outcomes, performances and results
    • City with good-governance has information systems that are: integrated, simplified, mission focused, open, inclusive, persistent
    • IT plays the key role in designing the nervous system and managing a city
    • Individual, social, economic and administrative information systems together bring life to cities
    • Hyderabad, Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune 2011- 2021?
    city admin social and economic communities families residents
  • Design issues building trust in ability to deliver results : meaningful consistent responses; citizens and businesses trust and trusted; few functions with clarity; mission focused services domains of governance (the areas where decisions must be made): energy, mobility, water, security, governance itself styles of governance : feudal, monarchist, federalist, anarchist, participative, collaborative mechanisms of governance : committee, teams, managers, councils, groups, communities, charters, budgets layers of governance : local, state, federal departments, functions, programs, schemes, windows success of governance : indicators, measurement, benchmarks, trust, scenarios, integrated, simplified, mission focused, open, inclusive, persistent
  • Steps to building a nervous system develop a vision for : individual, community and administrative information systems detail a roadmap from 2011 to 2020 for : integrated, simplified, mission focused, open, inclusive, persistent IS catalyze roll out of the roadmap : organize vehicles that will result in a self organizing nervous system
    • The nervous system shapes the character of the city and decides its happiness index
    • Anupam Saraph works with today's most imaginative, entrepreneurial leaders to mentor organizations in leadership, innovation and strategy in order to accomplish missions and achieve business goals.

  • A ward-wise information system becomes a simple nervous system for a city
  • A shared information system further develops the nervous system for a city
  • The nervous system can detect the the spread of epidemics
    • The nervous system can respond to movement of people and materials
    • The nervous system can respond to issues, service requests and disasters
    • The nervous system can respond to resource needs and infrastructure development
    • The nervous system can respond to health needs of the city or the region
