On June 8, IBM and the Architectural League of New York will debut ‘City of Systems‘ – a suite of short films that offer a creative look at the interconnected systems that help New York City function as one of the most vibrant and populous cities in the world. Thought leaders from urban planning, media, architecture, academia and technology will convene to open a dialogue about potential points of synergy and dissonance between smart systems and the design of the built environment.

In conjunction with the launch event, the suite of videos will premiere on Just released this week, check out the “Bridge” video with this post for a sneak peek at what’s to come.

An estimated 1 million people around the world are moving into cities each week; experts predict population in the world’s cities will double by 2050. But urbanization and the increase in data is also creating unmanageable complexity, unsustainable waste, and unnecessarily high expenses. Cities face aging infrastructure, declining budgets, changing populations, and increasing threats.

IBM continues to invest significant time and resources into this critical need to modernize and revitalize city infrastructures, and is collaborating with cultural institutions, such as the Architectural League of New York, to bring thought leaders in design and urbanism together to share knowledge and expertise on this cross-disciplinary effort. The short film series is intended to trigger discussion about urban infrastructure and various ways to optimize the systems that support – and shape – urban life.

What you published was actually very logical. However, think on this, what if you typed a catchier title?
I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you
added something that makes people desire more? I mean Sneak Peek:
“City of Systems” creative short film series debuts
June 8 to open dialogue around smarter urban environments « A Smarter Planet Blog is a little vanilla.

You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and note
how they create post titles to get viewers to open the links.
You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about everything’ve got to say.
Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.

Your thought is outstanding; the problem is something that not enough persons are speaking intelligently about. I am very completely happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.
