#YEG #IBM Smarter Cities Challenge Public Presentation #yam #yegit

What are the results of the Edmonton Smarter Cities Challenge?

For the past three weeks, a team of IBM experts from around the world have worked with the City of Edmonton to explore the innovative use of technology to create safer and richer communities. In March, Edmonton became the only Canadian city to receive a 2011 IBM Smarter City Challenge grant recipient <http://www.edmonton.ca/city_government/news/edmonton-wins-in-ibm-smarter-cities-challenge.aspx> .

As a result, the cities selected receive the consulting services from a talented and diverse group of IBM employees. For Edmonton, the IBM Smarter Cities team met with stakeholders on making our roads safer through the smarter utilization of transportation data.

You are invited to meet the IBM Smarter Cities team and hear about the outcome of their work and the potential long term positive implications for our residents, partners and local businesses.
