Dr. Meyerson will introduce IBM Smarter Planet solutions, where natural and engineered systems can be made “smarter” with the use of information and systems technology. Systems such as Water, Transportation, Energy and Healthcare can be instrumented, analyzed and optimized to make cleaner water, less congested traffic, cost-efficient energy, and safer food and healthcare.
Now, we need to know what to do next. How do you infuse intelligence into a system for which no one enterprise or agency is responsible? How do you bring all the necessary constituents together? Our companies, our cities and our world are complex systems—indeed, systems of systems—that requirenew things of us as leaders, as workers and as citizens. A smarter planet will require a profound shift in management and governance toward far more collaborative approaches.
