Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
One of the next big frontiers in the energy business is being smarter about collecting, storing and delivering energy. So let's talk about wind farms in China, where IBM has been developing legions of small weather sensors. The sensors translate tidal waves of real time data to make renewable energy plants more efficient by predicting the weather. And New York City has plenty of things we want but maybe don't need, like artisan pickles, baby yoga and now, classes for dogs to learn how to use iPads.
