Building Smarter Cities

From smokestacks to smart grids and from gridlock to smarter transportation, IBM is covering their bases when it comes to trying to streamline global systems.

And while we'd be happy with a subway line that runs on time, what IBM is working towards is much bigger and better, so check out their Smarter Cities initiative and hear from the everyday people on their smarter city fixes and from Chief Execs at IBM on their real plans to make our cities work better. And if that doesn't do it for you, there are cute kids with British accents chiming in on their ideas.

What's a smarter city to you? Smart grids? Smarter hospitals and health systems? More technology behind public safety? More higher education opportunities? All of these factor into Smarter Cities, so tell us, what does a smarter city mean to you? Let us know in the comments!
