Published on

The symposium, Livable Cities of the Future, brought together
an interdisciplinary group of engineers, civic leaders, educators
and futurists in a unique forum that offered an open discussion
of how George Bugliarello’s vision manifests itself in innovative
urban planning for the cities of tomorrow. Discussions examined
the critical role engineers play in the social and economic
development of cities and their ever-increasing importance in the
area of policymaking.

  1. 1. Breakthrough inInformation Technologyfor Smarter CitiesRuthie D. Lyle, PhDrlyle@us.ibm.comrlylecannon@gmail.comLivable Cities of the Future SymposiumPolytechnic Institute of New York UniversityIBM CorporationOctober 26, 20121 Smarter Planet – The Story so far | © 2012 IBM Corporation © 2012 IBM Corporation
  2. 2. Smarter Planet – The Core Idea In the last twenty years, the world has – Deployed a global, high- bandwidth network – Created a population of over 1 billion Internet users – Added roughly 4 billion mobile telephones – Embedded billions of sensors in our environment and infrastructure – Invented globally-integrated business processes2 Smarter Cities | © 2012 IBM Corporation
  3. 3. The Principle of “Smart”The Digital and Physical Worlds are converging, enabling usto leverage information to develop Insight and Wisdom Digital World Virtually all things, processes and applications, workflows, models, ways of working are becoming analysis, optimization… INTELLIGENT data integration Our world is becoming networks INTERCONNECTED sensors & actuators Our world is becoming Physical World INSTRUMENTED buildings, roads, pipelines, grids, airports… 3 Smarter Cities | © 2012 IBM Corporation

  14. 14. Summary – Across many domains it is no longer necessary to make a guess about what is happening today or might happen tomorrow – It is possible to extract insight about today and make good predictions about tomorrow – At the core Smarter Cities is about using information have more intelligently – The principle of “Smart” is about recognizing the interconnectivities of systems and their impact on peopleImage source: http://www.ascentstage.com/archives/2012/01/open-data-in-chicago/14 Smarter Cities | © 2012 IBM Corporation
