And many of the conversations heard at this week’s Pulse event in Las Vegas are around how real-world infrastructure — from buildings, to water mains, to manholes, to streets — can become information systems with the help of sensors, analytics, cloud and mobile computing and other clever technologies that are at work in everything from the Louvre museum in Paris, to school campuses in Los Angeles, to cities like Rio de Janeiro.

Along with these innovative technologies, we sometimes forget the importance of our natural resources. Hope that we can use these technologies in proper purposes.

This is an important topic — we can do so much to make our buildings, cities and infrastructure smarter. And this is a simple and lovely way to present the topic.
