As the world becomes more and more global, integrated and “flat”, it is also facing an array of problems: a financial crisis, climate disruption, energy geopolitics, food supply hazards etc.? This is coinciding with technological innovations such as the following developments that can assist in resolving these problems:
â?¢? ? ? The world is becoming instrumented.? By 2010, there will be a billion transistors per human, each one costing one ten-millionth of a cent.
â?¢? ? ? The world is becoming interconnected.? With a trillion networked things â?? cars, roadways, pipelines, appliances, pharmaceuticals and even livestock â?? the amount of information created by those interactions grows exponentially.
â?¢? ? ? All things are becoming intelligent.? Algorithms and powerful systems can analyze and turn those mountains of data into actual decisions and actions that make the world work better. Smarter.
IBM is attempting to use modern IT-technology to tackle many of the world’s problems.? In this presentation, Lennart Frantzell will talk about IBM’s global Smarter Planet initiative and some of the exciting technologies that IBM is leveraging in its quest to make the world a smarter place.
