The buzz: “I’m late, I’m late for a very important date” (White Rabbit). Don’t like sitting in traffic? No one does. More drivers around the world are enduring traffic delays due to soaring economic growth, residential housing closer to the urban core, and infrastructure that can't keep up with demand. Cities are looking at the costs: commuter stress, impacts on family and business, housing prices, demand for city services. Can smart citizens engage with governments and technology to get anywhere on time? The experts speak. Donovan Guin, IBM: “We shape our tools and thereafter our tools shape us” (John M. Culkin). Jesse Samberg, IBM: “You can't always get what you want, but if you try some times, you just might find, you get what you need.” (Rolling Stones)
Mike Eberhardt, SAP: “If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools” (Plato). Join us for Smart Citizen Engagement and Transportation: Get Me There On Time!
