Open Data for Smart Cities

A session at PICNIC '11

  • Harry van Dorenmalen

Thursday 15th September, 2011

10:20am to 10:30am (AMT)

The majority of us live in cities now, and the global percentage is growing fast. In fact, it is estimated that one million people move into the world’s cities each week. With this enormous influx of population, we’ll need to find new ways to manage complexity, to increase efficiency, to reduce expenses and to improve quality of life. As our planet gets more urban, our cities need to get smarter.

Harry van Dorenmalen, Chairman of IBM Europe will elaborate on how smart cities harness the power of open data and mass collaboration to engage citizens and solve city issues. By making the data openly available – as so-called “open data” – new business applications will evolve, providing services that are derived from this public sector information.
