The buzz: “Cities are never random.” (Neal Shusterman)
Cities around the world are on a mission: maintain a safe, clean, well-oiled, inclusive urban environment for residents, businesses, and visitors. The key is to perform mundane tasks more efficiently than ever. But how to automatically clear storm drains in a downpour, repair street light outages, keep traffic flowing efficiently 24/7? The solution: real-time IoT sensors. The experts speak. Meghan Cook, Center for Technology in Government, SUNY: “The power of storytelling is exactly this: to bridge the gaps where everything else has crumbled” (Paulo Coelho). Dina Dayal, SAP: “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there” (Will Rogers). Saj Kumar, SAP: “I don't think of myself predicting things. I'm expressing possibilities. Things that could happen. To a large extent it's a question of how badly people want them to” (Freeman Dyson).
