Instrumented Interconnecteds Intelligent

Buildings that know when they need to be fixed before something breaks; sensors that tell the fire department details of a fire before they receive the emergency phone call; smart water and sewage systems that filter and recycle water. . . . .

It’s that time of year here at IBM – when we look to the future and make five predictions of technological trends that will change the way we live in the next five years. Given the current attention to making our cities smarter, for this year’s we have focused on five innovations that will change our cities in the next five years.

Importantly, the list is intended to serve as a discussion point to discuss – and debate – the prospects for our cities and how progress can be made.

If there’s one common thread in all of the advances we see in the coming years, it’s the ability to monitor our environment with sensors and the application of analytics – complex algorithms baked into software – to make decisions based on all of that data. In reality, it’s what we’ve been talking about for the past year here on this blog, but we are just now beginning to see these efforts implemented at the city level to really change how cities work.

Analytics will predict the patterns of how diseases will spread, will enable buildings to evaluate the relationships between their systems and provide real-time information to management, will enable city smart grids to draw on clean energy during peak and off peak hours, find water leaks and more efficient ways to move water, and predict emergencies before they happen to limit their impact.

While these are predictions for the future, in each case the innovation is rooted in work we are just beginning to see pop up with some of our city clients or in our labs today. We’ll spend some time over the next few weeks to go deeper into each one of these topics, sharing what’s happening now and exploring opportunities for the future.

But in the meantime, and without further ado, below is this year’s “Next 5 in 5”:

  1. Cities will have healthier immune systems
    Given their population density, cities will remain hotbeds of communicable diseases. But in the future, public health officials will know precisely when, where and how diseases are spreading – even which neighborhoods will be affected next. Scientists will give city officials, hospitals, schools and workplaces the tools to better detect, track, prepare for and prevent infections, such as the H1N1 virus or seasonal influenza. We will see a “health Internet” emerge, where anonymous medical information, contained in electronic health records, will be securely shared to curtail the spread of disease and keep people healthier.
  2. City buildings will sense and respond like living organisms
    As people move into city buildings at record rates, buildings will be built smartly. Today, many of the systems that constitute a building – heat, water, sewage, electricity, etc. – are managed independently. In the future, the technology that manages facilities will operate like a living organism that can sense and respond quickly, in order to protect citizens, save resources and reduce carbon emissions. Thousands of sensors inside buildings will monitor everything from motion and temperature to humidity, occupancy and light. The building won’t just coexist with nature – it will harness it. This system will enable repairs before something breaks, emergency units to respond quickly with the necessary resources, and consumers and business owners to monitor their energy consumption and carbon emission in real-time and take action to reduce them. Some buildings are already showing signs of intelligence by reducing energy use, improving operational efficiency, and improving comfort and safety for occupants.
  3. Cars and city buses will run on empty
    For the first time, the “E” on gas gauges will mean “enough.” Increasingly, cars and city buses no longer will rely on fossil fuels. Vehicles will begin to run on new battery technology that won’t need to be recharged for days or months at a time, depending on how often you drive. IBM scientists and partners are working to design new batteries that will make it possible for electric vehicles to travel 300 to 500 miles on a single charge, up from 50 to 100 miles currently. Also, smart grids in cities could enable cars to be charged in public places and use renewable energy, such as wind power, for charging so they no longer rely on coal-powered plants. This will lower emissions as well as minimize noise pollution. (see the Battery 500 and Bornholm electric vehicle posts for hints at what is to come)
  4. Smarter systems will quench cities’ thirst for water and save energy
    Today, one in five people lack access to safe drinking water, and municipalities lose an alarming amount of precious water — up to 50 percent through leaky infrastructure. On top of that, human demand for water is expected to increase sixfold in the next 50 years. To deal with this challenge, cities will install smarter water systems to reduce water waste by up to 50 percent. Cities also will install smart sewer systems that not only prevent run-off pollution in rivers and lakes, but purify water to make it drinkable. Advanced water purification technologies will help cities recycle and reuse water locally, reducing energy used to transport water by up to 20 percent. Interactive meters and sensors will be integrated into water and energy systems, providing you with real time, accurate information about your water consumption so you will be able to make better decisions about how and when you use this valuable resource.
  5. Cities will respond to a crisis — even before receiving an emergency phone call
    Cities will be able to reduce and even prevent emergencies, such as crime and disasters. Law enforcement agencies will turn to mathematics and analytics to analyze the right information at the right time, so that public servants can take proactive measures to head off crime. Fire departments will begin using software to potentially prevent fires from happening in the first place. Even today, scientists are beginning to look at past fires, smoke patterns and climate fluctuations to developing models that predict wildfires, to prevent fires and speed public evacuations when they happen.

Maumedžio terasos lentos kaina priklauso nuo maumedžio rūšies ir jos apdirbimo. Tačiau čia ne kaina svarbiausias rodiklis. Svarbiausia, kad tai itin kokybiška mediena, kuri nebijo drėgmės ir yra ilgaamžiška.

Iš maumedžio gaminamos ypač geros trinkelės, lentos tvorai, gontai.

Plastikiniai langai vakarų Europoje naudojami nuo 5-jo dešimtmečio. Savo populiarumu nenusileidžia kitiems langams, o už labai konkurencingą kainą galima džiaugtis gera garso ir šilumos izoliacija. Klaipėdoje yra ne vienas ir ne du pardavėjai, kurie siūlo įsigyti naujus plastikinius langus. Atpažinti, kurie pardavėjai yra patikimi, nėra lengvas uždavinys.

Žinoma, jei pardavėjas atsižvelgia į kliento poreikius ir leidžia laisvai pasirinkti plastikinio lango dizainą, atidarymo būdą, profilio spalvą, reiškia, kad jis rūpinasi ne vien pardavimo kiekiais, bet ir parduodamos produkcijos kokybe.

Ar Kaunas gamina plastikinius langus?

Šalta namuose, pučia per tarpus, o gal į butą patenka per didelis kiekis drėgmės? Kalbos ir mintys apie langų keitimą prasideda nuo langų kainos ir kiek kamerų turėtų turėti užsakomi plastikiniai langai Kaunas. Suprantama, kad tam tikros klimato sąlygos verčia rinktis praktiškesnius langus, bet kainos atžvilgiu, jie yra truputėlį brangesni. Manome, kad nesvarbu kiek kamerų turės langai ir kokie stiklo paketai bus sumontuoti.

Well, unfortunately, none of your predictions are true as we are at the same spot as we were back in 2009. Now it is even worse as cities expanded and influence the environment even more drastically. There are such small countries left (Like Lithuania, Albania, Montnegro, Estonia etc.) which have a high level of welfare and little cities.

We need a system that makes every car stay moving (and productive) and has little unused internal space when it is. With GPS, we can track all vehicles, and tracking the use of spaces inside cars is not difficult, making all spaces/seats available for booking.

Great article. But I definitely think that we’re looking at much longer than just 5 years.

Sure, technology is changing and improving at a rapid rate, but even when things are fully developed, they have to be tested repeatedly, and have to pass government standards and get approval before implementation.

The ideas in your article are definitely interesting however, and I’m curious to see how many come to fruition

Another major development is the rise of collaborative consumption, i.e. products and services are not merely used by owners, but are also shared with other users and consumers. Our company is one example of this. We enable private carsharing throughout Germany. On our user platform users can rent cars and also lend their own vehicles.

With such a reliance on sensors everywhere, are they going to be high-reliability with redundancy? And what monitors the integrity of the sensors? I know with car diagnostics systems, the first thing to go are the sensors. And sometimes it is not so obvious if it is the sensor or the item being monitored by the sensor that has gone bad – the mechanic does the standard swap test (when feasible) to isolate the fault.

Innovation can never be predicted but it can be surely upgraded or make it highly developed towards the consumer goods. so it is definite that in future the innovation will rule the world as the symptoms are being seen today itself. i hope everyone is waiting to see the magnificent world full of technology and gadgets.

Predictions for the future you say? Many of the diagnostics and management systems you mention are already well implemented in the lift industry! Lifts Escalators that are able to detect call passenger information over a period, anticipate people flow and adapt accordingly.
Lift systems now can work to increase handling capacity during up peak, while during light traffic it can save energy and other times can work to make the shortest journey time to keep fewer people in the lift car for comfort.
Lift systems can self diagnose and repair the faults before they occur and engineers can now repair the lift systems without attending via simple Lan networks
The future has already arrived

It seems that the innovation is their ability to create new value by claiming to be innovative. This may be a better approach than actually being innovative. Just look at all the points given it shows that the city will definitely change.

Interesting article. But I definitely think that we’re looking at much longer than just 5 years.

Sure, technology is changing and improving at a rapid rate, but even when things are fully developed, they have to be tested repeatedly, and have to pass government standards and get approval before implementation.

The ideas in your article are definitely interesting however, and I’m curious to see how many come to fruition.

The innovations sound so interesting and I do hope if this will be implemented soon, it would also be implemented to the third world countries. This is quite expensive but it will really bring a lot of progress if the innovation will all be successful. Great article and great video!

The idea of a “health Internet” is an excellent one (not that the other ideas aren’t as well), however as with any ‘big idea,’ it will no doubt meet with resistance. This seems to be the way with major advances, there is always someone (and more often than not lots of people) who will have some misguided ‘moral objection.’

I think that technology will be available or is already available to do this, but implementing it in the next five years is not realistic.

At our car rental agency we have a lot of demand to rent electric cars. But we or our competitors don’t have any electric cars. Main reason is luck of the infrastructure. It takes government sponsored or subsidized program to implement a citywide chain of electric charging stations.

Yes Nissan is coming up with a great electric car called Leaf http://www.nissanusa.com/leaf-electric-car/index#/leaf-electric-car/index which has decent range on single charge and Better Place http://www.betterplace.com/ has great initiatives that will bring us closer to the prediction in the video, but not in five years.

Some good ideas! I’m just concerned about the personal privacy.
Crime and epedemic preventions are fine things but when all those informations needed for the prevention gets to the wrong hands, it can be catastrophal.
If we’ll not be carefull the state will turn into a Surveillance state before we even realize.
There has to be more than one, maybe 3 instances, that are controlling what the police (for example) is doing with that data.

And preventing crimes before they are commited is a very fine thing, but i hope you considered that one can’t punish oder judge the potential criminal. It’s great against amok runs and terrorism!

I agree with you on the others and support them. With those inventions our world will be one step closer to a good world. Then we’ll just have to help the other worlds, like the third world countries to reach at least some of this comfort we have!

The future city is a city with reduced car traffic. The way of doing this without charging high toll fees for entering into the city is by Trafikklogistikk. see my blog: http://trafikklogistikk.com, if you would like to develop this concept togeteher with me, please contact me on: knut@trafikklogistikk.com

Disappointed in transportation vision for cities. Electric power makes some sense, but only in cities where pollution and noise are problems. There is much more to consider.

Where is the hard analysis of efficiency, and where are the instruments and sensors you tout in other areas? Cars take up valuable space in cities, resulting in not only congestion, but sprawl — both for wide roads and up to a third of the private land for parking. What about the empty seats in cars, while half the population don’t have their own cars? What about the health downsides of auto-dependency?

We need a system that makes every car stay moving (and productive) and has little unused internal space when it is. With GPS, we can track all vehicles, and tracking the use of spaces inside cars is not difficult, making all spaces/seats available for booking.

Carsharing now fills a niche for those who drive little; but second-gen version could allow one-way use and tracking of where each car will be parked, so that the reservation system knows its location(s) for the near future. Private ownership would be replaced as a result.

Carsharing should be merged with ridesharing, taxi, and car-rental, with transit-linking (via seat reservations) possible (“trans-seat”?)

Yes, private car ownership is wasteful, unnecessary, and ignores the stress and responsibilities of driving in an age where people want to be on-line/in-touch or able to read stuff constantly. The rich know that riding is better than driving, but the auto industry has exalted driving into something it isn’t.

You specialize in systems. Let’s see more systems thinking about how people and goods move, not just in cities, but between them.

Nice but too naive and not forward thinking enough. All that in 5 years?? And not one scrap of evil applications? “Filling stations” for recharging cars is a very in-the-box idea. If there are windmills on buildings, that’ll mean electricity being made everywhere, not merely available everywhere (not that there’s much difference). So instead of filling stations, we’ll recharge cars constantly as they drive over recharge zones or hotspots, like those pads that can recharge a cell phone by simply resting it on the pad. And the mathematics for tracking outbreaks… seems a little naive to think corporations won’t also try very hard (and win battles) to use the information to track individuals.

@Ramachandran K The telecommuting point is a good one. When we were at the Transportation Breakout session of the NYC Smarter City Summit (see posts from October 1st-2nd), one of the participants made the point that most of what everyone was talking about involved the “supply side” of the transportation debate, but no one seemed to be talking about the “demand side.” In other words, how we could reduce the demand and strain on our transpotation infrastructure through things like telecommuting, flexible work hours, etc. I hadn’t thought about the effects of that on things like health care too, but as you point out, it IS, indeed a significant opportunity. IBM has something like 40% of it’s US workforce working outside of a traditional office (the majority of which are telecommuters). I wonder if there are any data points I could find that are relevant… stay tuned.

A smarter solution will be to enabling more people to telecommute for work, education and trade. When people do not move around or crowd around on place, naturally vehicle usage and possibility of disease spread would decrease. How can science & technology help individual people do all that they want sitting at one place and doing stuff online in secure manner is the biggest innovatiion for a smarter planet or smarter city….hmmm

Matti – yes, I can see how the police bit sounds like minority report! But I think it’s much more about understanding trends and situations, and quickly taking control of situations – as they are unfolding. And in understanding trends, law enforcement can understand what previously unforeseen factors lead to spikes in criminal activity and move resources to potential areas or situations to calm them before anything occurs. That’s probably as clear as mud. For a current-day example of this, see this video of stuff we’ve done in NYC. I think what we are talking about here is becoming more predictive and bringing this technology to many cities: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74wB9pctFv8

[...] IBM lancia le nuove cinque proposte Per rendere “Smarter” le città Filed Under: Tecnologie by admin gen.27, 2010 IBM ha svelato le nuove cinque innovazioni che probabilmente nei prossimi cinque anni rivoluzioneranno le città. E’ Next Five in Five, la classifica che ormai da quattro anni la società newyorkese conduce attraverso lo studio delle tendenze di mercato e sociali che trasformeranno il nostro modo di vivere. La società americana in base a queste previsioni, da tempo, infatti si impegna nella ricerca tecnologica per rendere le città più intelligenti. Nella proposta, forse un po’ utopica dell’IBM, il bisogno quindi di migliorare attraverso l’uso della tecnologia il benessere cittadino senza mai sottovalutare quello ambientale. Come risolvere allora il deteroriamento delle infrastrutture se da un lato aumenta in maniera esponenziale l’urbanizzazione cittadina? Quest’anno la società informatica risponde così. Il livello dei “sistemi immunitari” delle città sarà ulteriormente migliorato grazie a una migliore conoscenza ed esperienza del personale sanitario che sarà in grado di prevedere esattamente quando, dove e come si svilupperanno i virus. IBM sta infatti collaborando con organizzazioni mondiali, quali il Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) , Global Health and Security Initiative e il “Middle East Consortium of Infectious Disease Surveillance (MECIDS), per poter standardizzare i metodi di condivisione delle informazioni relative alla salute e all’analisi delle epidemie di malattie infettive. Le costruzioni in città saranno in grado di percepire e reagire come esseri umani. La costruzione degli edifici cittadini prevederà soluzioni intelligenti: la rete elettrica, la rete idrica, il trattamento delle acque reflue e il riscaldamento verranno gestiti grazie a migliaia di sensori che monitoreranno costantemente i livelli di consumi, riducendo allo stesso tempo i livelli di emissioni di carbonio. Un esempio recente di “sistemi intelligenti” è già attivo presso il “China Hangzhou Dragon Hotel: scegliendo le tecnologie “smart” di IBM ha costruito una rete di sistemi di gestione intelligente integrando i propri sistemi. Automobili e autobus correranno col serbatoio vuoto. Per la prima volta, la lettera “E” sull’indicatore della benzina indicherà “efficace”. Gli scienziati IBM stanno lavorando su nuove tecnologie per migliorare sempre più la durata delle batterie: attualmente la riserva consente di percorrere soltanto 30- 70 chilometri ad ogni ricarica. IBM e la multinazionale danese EDISON stanno collaborando allo sviluppo di una infrastruttura intelligente che permetta l’adozione su larga scala di veicoli funzionanti con energia sostenibile. Sistemi intelligenti saranno in grado di dissetare gli abitanti delle città e risparmieranno energia. Ancora oggi, una persona su cinque non dispone di acqua potabile: le amministrazioni locali perdono un’altissima quantità di acqua preziosa – fino al 50% – a causa di infrastrutture mancanti o mal funzionanti. Tecnologie avanzate per la purificazione dell’acqua aiuteranno le città nel riciclo e utilizzo locale dell’acqua, riducendo i costi di trasporto necessari fino al 20%. Contatori intelligenti e sensori verranno integrati all’interno dei sistemi idrici ed elettrici, fornendo in tempo reale informazioni precise ed accurate relative al consumo, permettendo così una migliore gestione dei tempi e delle modalità nell’utilizzo di questa preziosa risorsa. Le città potranno prevenire e affrontare le crisi prima che vengano denunciate alle autorità. Saranno infatti in grado di ridurre e persino prevenire le emergenze, inclusi i crimini e i disastri. IBM sta già aiutando le forze dell’ordine nell’analizzare in maniera corretta l’informazione corretta al momento giusto, e prendere velocemente le adeguate misure contro i crimini. I pompieri della città di New York hanno scelto IBM per la creazione di un sistema avanzato di raccolta e condivisione dei dati in tempo reale che faciliti la prevenzione di incendi e, allo stesso tempo, protegga gli stessi pompieri.
