IBM has released a series of videos examining the challenges facing UK and Irish cities.
The first five films, Introducing The Smarter City, The Living City, Powering the City, City in Motion and Developing the City look at how a city can be viewed as a system of systems, and connecting these systems together can impact healthcare, public transport, crime prevention, education, energy production and use, congestion and infrastructure development.
The final film, City of Dreams (available in 3D if you’re so inclined) provides ‘a glimpse of what promises to be a Decade of Smart in the social and economic development of the city. In 10 years’ time, our cities are likely to have changed significantly.’
