Instrumented Interconnecteds Intelligent

“Hidden beneath the highways and streets of Washington DC is a sprawling infrastructure of hundreds of thousands of assets — water distribution pipes, valves, collection pipes, man holes, water meters and fire hydrants . . .

Here’s another true story from IBM’s First-of-a-Kind (FOAK) program, which pairs IBM researchers with clients to bring incredible discoveries and possibilities into view.

As DC Water discovered, bringing greater intelligence and connectedness into its operations would go a long way toward creating a truly integrated and smarter water system; and, most importantly, satisfying its thousands of customers.

And as all the FOAK projects are proving, it is the dynamic nature of this close interaction with IBM clients and the changing forces of the real world that drives innovation and brings it to market at an ever-quickening pace.

he steps, post solution, is not realistic. DC is a multi-cultural, multi-racial, multi-ethnicity city. That multi-ness must be visually included in any image.
I would have liked to hear multiple voices, esp

Great video! Very interesting to see how IBM and DC Water were able to work together to bring the DC water system back to life. What an intricate project to tackle!

I love the pictorial representation of a project. I have two comments about this FOAK Tale (I am an IBMer and also a close-to-DC resident):
The image of all white DC residents sitting on the steps, post solution, is not realistic. DC is a multi-cultural, multi-racial, multi-ethnicity city. That multi-ness must be visually included in any image.
I would have liked to hear multiple voices, especially Chinese.

Thank you for this wonderfully innovative project and for the creative way you described it.
