  2. 2. © 2010 IBM Corporation2 Smarter cities – Facilitating the global discussion Berlin New York Shanghai June 2009 250 leaders October 2009 500 leaders June 2010 800 leaders … plus 100+ local leader events … and 3,000+ city engagements
  3. 3. © 2010 IBM Corporation3 What is a system? “A group of interacting, interrelated, or interdependent elements forming a complex whole”
  4. 4. © 2010 IBM Corporation4 Systems of our world and the $4 trillion opportunity
  5. 5. © 2010 IBM Corporation5 Cities are a complex collection of systems PEOPLE ENERGY WATER ICT COMMERCE TRAFFIC FACILITIES … and silos
  6. 6. © 2010 IBM Corporation6 Cities have systemic challenges In a small business district in Los Angeles, driving around for parking in one year generated the equivalent of 38 trips around the world, burned 47,000 gallons of gas, emitted 730 tons of carbon dioxide. Congested roadways cost $78 billion annually in the form of 4.2 billion lost hours and 2.9 billion gallons of wasted gas.
  7. 7. © 2010 IBM Corporation7 And not just cities… In the U.S., a typical carrot has traveled 1,600 miles, a potato 1,200 miles, a chuck roast 600 miles… …grocers and consumers throw away $48 billion worth of food every year.
  8. 8. © 2010 IBM Corporation8 Urbanization makes all the challenges even harder In 2007, for the first time in history, the majority of the world’s population - 3.3 billion people - lived in cities. By 2050, city dwellers are expected to make up 70% of Earth’s total population, or 6.4 billion people.
  9. 9. © 2010 IBM Corporation9 Aging infrastructure in existing cities Water In the U.S., a significant water line bursts on average every 2 minutes Projections show energy consumption increasing by 50% in the next 25 years. Transport Energy 33% of U.S. Roads in poor, mediocre or fair condition & 27% of bridges deficient

  11. 11. © 2010 IBM Corporation11 All this complexity is typically dealt by applying reductionism* Intelligence cameras Automatic ticketing Access control Identification systems Intrusion alarms Video surveillance Fire detection and alarms ….. Alternative energy sources Energy management Building management Energy distribution Street lighting Water distribution Water treatment Sewers …… Traffic management Radar cameras Traffic signaling Tolling Pedestrian crossings Subways Trains Buses Roads Parking …… Fire engines Ambulances Emergency room Healthcare Public Health K-12 Universities Continuing education Economic development Social care …… *a philosophical position that a complex system is nothing but the sum of its parts, and that an account of it can be reduced to accounts of individual constituents
  12. 12. © 2010 IBM Corporation12 We argue that we will not understand cities through reductionism Source: Sterman, John, “Business Dynamics: Systems Thinking and Modeling for a Complex World,” 2000, p. 187
  13. 13. © 2010 IBM Corporation13 Not an easy task… “When the burdens of the presidency seem unusually heavy, I always remind myself it could be worse. I could be a mayor.”
  14. 14. © 2010 IBM Corporation14 Smarter cities are finding solutions today Social Services: In California, Smarter Services Agencies are improving case management for over 158,000 clients while saving nearly $70M Water: In Texas, Smarter Water Management agencies have eliminated 1/3 of their service calls by predicting maintenance needs Public Safety: In New York, Smarter Fire Departments are improving responsiveness and saving lives by integrating city information
  15. 15. © 2010 IBM Corporation15 Technology can make these solutions possible Turning Information into Insight Optimizing systems to deliver outcomes
  16. 16. © 2010 IBM Corporation16 We can measure, sense and monitor almost everything Camera phones in existence able to document accidents, damage, and crimes 1 billion RFID tags embedded into our world and across entire ecosystems 30 billion Of new automobiles will contain event data recorders collecting travel information 85% Instrumented Interconnected Intelligent
  17. 17. © 2010 IBM Corporation17 People and systems can communicate freely Instrumented Interconnected Intelligent Mobile phone subscribers globally 4 billion People on the internet by 2011 2 billion Connected devices in the “internet of things” 1 trillion
  18. 18. © 2010 IBM Corporation18 We can predict and respond to changes quickly Instrumented Interconnected Intelligent Or one quadrillion operations per second can be calculated 1 petaflop Of new information generated every day and can now be managed 15 petabytes Of granularity for weather prediction can be modeled and measured 1 kilometer²

  20. 20. © 2010 IBM Corporation20 “Smarter Cities” is a way to approach the complexity of the real world in terms of the flows of information by integration across multiple government agencies Atlantic Council Awards Dinner, Washington, D.C., April 29, 2009 “And a city is a system—indeed, a city is a complex system of systems. All the ways in which the world works—from transportation, to energy, to healthcare, to commerce, to education, to security, to food and water and beyond—come together in our cities.” Sources • Meters • Traffic loops • Toll sensors • Surveillance cameras • Environmental sensors • Water flow, depth,….sensors • Energy flow sensors • Vehicle telematics (bus, taxi…) • Mobile telephone (anonymous) • People as sensors (environmental…) • People as data collectors (text, image, video…) • ….and many more Uses • “Understanding the city” • Multi-agency alarms and emergency response • Multi-factor predictive models (congestion prediction…) • Multi-factor risk analysis (impact of storms…) • Input to government processes (“Fix that hole”) • Polling (planning preferences…) • Billing (resource consumption, transit, parking…) • Visualizations (many kinds) • ….and many more
  21. 21. © 2010 IBM Corporation21 A Smarter City is considered to be a single system with many interconnecting and interdependent sub systems. The ability to instrument, interconnect and gain intelligence is a fundamental requirement for a Smarter City.
