The more we slap sensors on things and network devices, the more excited we get about all that data. The information that we can leverage to make our entire existence so efficient we’ll all have oodles of money, time, and energy to spend however we want. Of course, this will require major software, and IBM has just released new cloud-based software that hopes to help do just that for city governments. Bernie Meyerson, head of innovation at IBM, tells Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson all about it.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.  

The clock is ticking 

Time is running out to make a gift to Marketplace and help us meet our $100,000 fall fundraiser goal by midnight tonight.
