3 ideas to build one smarter planet
1. Instrument the world’s system (INSTRUMENTED):-
i) By making the world’s system instrumented I.B.M. means that now they have the ability to measure, sense and see the exact condition of everything ii) They believe that everything will get instrumented ranging from supply chains, health care networks, cities to natural systems like rivers 2. Interconnect them (INTERCONNECTED)

i) Interconnected means connecting people, systems and objects so that they can they can interact and communicate within themselves freely and in entirely new way 3. Make them intelligent (INTELLIGENT)

i) Intelligent means being dynamic i.e. responding to changes quickly and accurately and get better results by predicting and optimizing for future events

INSTRUMENTED + INTERCONNECTED + INTELLIGENT= SMARTER PLANET, this gives an opportunity to think and act in new ways socially, economically and technically & make system more efficient, responsive and productive. By smarter, we mean that intelligence is being infused into the systems and processes that make the world work—into things no one would recognize as computers: cars, appliances, roadways, power grids, clothes, even natural systems such as agriculture and waterways. At I.B.M. they describe the statement “our planet is becoming ‘smarter’” as:- * With billions of inexpensive sensors being embedded inside everything from train and planes to livestock and medicines, our world is being instrumented, allowing systems and objects to ‘speak’ with each other * Linked to powerful backend(support) systems these instruments can analyse data an turn information into insights in real time, turning mere assets into intelligent assets * Basically using the assets in best possible way (optimum utilization) and conserving them for future use, i.e. “SUSTAINIBLITY DEVELOPMENT” Main highlights of the campaign “Build a Smarter Planet”:- 1.
