The urbanization age is upon us. While the estimates vary of what percentage of population will live in cities by 2020, 2050, or even 2015 for that matter, what remains constant is the undeniable pace of change cities are already facing – change that will only accelerate.

Cities around the world, whether big, mid-size or small, are reaching their limits from growing and aging populations, strained infrastructures and a constant need to do more with less.

To reinvent themselves for the 21st century – “the New Era of Smart” – cities are turning to data. Using and analyzing information in new ways is enabling them to anticipate problems in real time, or better yet, before they happen. In addition, the knowledge and insight is crucial for city officials to make better decisions and swiftly resolve the issues that are most pressing for citizens.

But no single department in a city can do it alone. To achieve success even with the right technology in hand, you need collaboration. Cities must cross organizational boundaries by aligning departments, convening the right leaders and experts, and innovating in partnerships between the public and private sectors.

It is in this spirit of collaboration that IBM is launching the Smarter Cities Master Class, a video lecture series that provides viewers insights from IBM Researchers. These speakers work directly with cities and academia around the globe to help them overcome some of their toughest issues, like resource management, transportation, healthcare, and education.

By sharing the expertise of our researchers and the successes of our customers we hope to foster new ideas, new thinking and the kind of collaboration that’s needed to solve the challenges facing our cities, our citizens and the world.

I had the honor of being the presenter of our inaugural master class video, The New Era of Smart: Innovations that will Change Cities and the Way We Live, which was held in the IBM Research Labs in Dublin, a global hub for our Smarter Cities research.

The video series is available now and will be continuously updated with new content. I invite you to tune-in often for great insights on how to help your city succeed in the New Era of Smart.

I needed to write you that little bit of remark to help give many thanks once again with your striking solutions you’ve featured on this website. It was certainly extremely open-handed of you to grant publicly what exactly most people would have made available as an e-book to generate some profit for themselves, specifically seeing that you could have done it if you considered necessary. Those solutions in addition acted like a fantastic way to realize that some people have similar interest similar to mine to know good deal more related to this condition. I am certain there are some more enjoyable moments ahead for individuals who scan through your site.

The distinctive designs are typical of Diesels tactic of making
very ‘noticeable’ products that are hard to ignore. Inside of the bra are pads
that soak up excess milk drips and surprise leakage that can cause embarrassing
accidents. There were briefs and there were boxers, and neither came in styles that were in any way flattering.
As we move into a new millennium we have seen men’s underwear
become a lot more varied. Dark colors are great to be worn under dark-colored clothes.

Your marketing calendar is as good of a place as any
to delegate work. SEO companies in Orange County understand the relevance of social media in the current business scenario.
You enter in some words to start with, then the tool will return a list of keywords with information such as the number of
searches, the competition rate, and other information that
is important for you to consider when using a keyword.
It takes now seconds to get familiarized with the new products
due to social media. If you plan and post intentionally, instead
of merely posting just because you have to, your blog will have a much higher
success with SEO.

Solar panels work best when they are in a spot, which has constant exposure to
the sun throughout the year. Don’t try to do more than you are physically able
to do.

I�m impressed, I need to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that�s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very pleased that I stumbled across this in my search for something referring to this.
