Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
mpouraryan, in my mind that is true knowledge!  The ability to make the complex simple.  When we reach that point, we are truly educating.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
The challenge is to make sure we don't overwhelm--by educating and in turn empowering while making sure that it is simple, to the point and effective.    Our deliberations here play, in my view, a crucial role.

Re: cars of the future
It is part and parcel of the evolution we're witness to--no doubt.

The most important force has to be security--and it is ever so critical.

As I was "in community", I saw this cross my desk (and although a bit beyond our discourse here) it underscores how security has to be critical in any evolution as we look to 2016:

Re: cars of the future
@clrmoney, you raise interesting thoughts. With the technology capabilities now enabling self-driving autonomous cars, the ability to "lift" them off the road is not that much of a stretch of the imagination. It would certainly help with the issue of transportation and the limits of our existing transportation systems.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
mpouraryan, Happy February to you as well! Yes, these are exciting times. That's why staying connected (i.e., Telco Transformation) and up-to-date with the latest developments are key! (Note: Virtualization will further disrupt the status quo, in my opinion.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
Happy February to you @DHagar and my fellow community members here in Telco Transformation!!!

"Smart Cities" is one of those initiatives that is exciting to read about and be witness to.  Beyond the immediate that you've underscored, the long-term is to sustain it especially as we're witness to changes that we're yet to truly understand--including Virtualization.   I  was reflecting upon it today sa I spent almost an hour reconstituting my own office Telecom Service.

Exciting times, though--no question...

cars of the future
I think that be be differnt infrastructure of building cars thamn they are today. I think going into the future that there will be flying cars maybe and no longer need for the use for cars that require gas and oil. I heard that green algae can be replacecable for gas. I had seen that on television so there will be new invention.ideas for cars etc.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
mpouraryan, you are correct.  We cannot sustain cities unless we pay attention to the quality of life, as well as the economics.

I believe that is where "Smart Cities" comes in.  We have to align the goals so that cities are prosperous places to do business, necessary for tax revenues, and then collaborate with public/private partnerships to address the environmental issues - and then go a step further in transforming the systems to build both economic and environmental sustainability - which does require both successful enterpirse and effective local government.  Stopping short of that goal will not move us forward.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
Thank you @DHagar for your gracious thoughts over the ensuing days.   As a follow up to the thoughts on the fight we're faced with, another one that is not as prevalent as I see it is the Environment.   The images from Mumbai over the past 24 hours were horrific in my view--this is as other cities throughout India and the World have to contend with it all as well.   Maybe I'm stretching it a bit too much--but the possibilities can be limitless if we have the courage to embrace it.

Re: Smart City Forum (Thank You !!)
ms.akkineni, good points.  That's where I think the real opportunity lies in using how to translate that data into "smart" information that enables us to better manage, make decisions, predict and prepare for events.  We truly need to develop the skills and cultures to support the technology to enable this to evolve.
