The Planet seems to have a lot of problems …
Food supply chain: recipe for
76 million cases of food-born illnesses
occur annually in the U.S. alone. 60% of
produce and 75% of seafood in the U.S. is
imported; 1% is inspected before it arrives
on your table.
Counterfeit drugs: endangering health
10% of the drugs on the WW market are
counterfeit – from everyday headache
remedies to specialty prescriptions; are you
and your family safe?
Inefficient healthcare: link to poverty
Personal expenditures on healthcare push 100
million people below the poverty line each year.
Congested roadways: wasting fuel,
time and causing pollution
The U.S. alone spends $78 billion in the form
of 4.2 billion lost hours and 2.9 billion
gallons of wasted gas…not to mention the
impact on air quality.
Conventional buildings: no friend
to the environment
By 2025, buildings will use more energy than
any other category of "consumer." Today, in
the U.S. they represent 70% of energy use and
38% of greenhouse gas emissions.
Worldwide water demand increasing:
supply is inadequate and unsafe
Today 1 in 5 people lacks safe drinking water
and 50% of the world’s population does not
have adequate sanitation
Can we fix these problems
by building a Smarter Planet?
What is a Smarter Planet…
Our world is becoming
Our world is becoming
All things becoming
By 2010, there will be a billion transistors per human,
each one costing one ten-millionth of a cent.
With a trillion networked things—cars, roadways, pipelines,
appliances, pharmaceuticals and even livestock—the amount of
information and
by those
can analyze
turn those mountains of
data into actual decisions and actions that make the world work better.
BUT a Smarter Planet….

This week we will visit some Smarter companies
in St. Louis..
How can we use these Smarter companies to
build a Smarter St. Louis?
Last night you saw the WeCar…..
How is that Smart?
Last night you saw the WeCar…..
How is it collecting information?
Last night you saw the WeCar…..
How is it networking information?
Last night you saw the WeCar…..
What kind of decisions is it making?
What else can we do with this Smart idea?
On your visits this week.. What to look for…
INSTRUMENTED - Sensors collecting data ..
like --- your phone,
INTERCONNECTED – Data becoming information
like – your Phone to GPS satellite, email, text messaging
INTELLIGENT – Coming up with answers to problems …
like -- your Phone knows where you are..
On your visits.. What to ask….
What kind of instruments are used to collect
How is it networked together?
What intelligence is gained and how is it
On your visits.. What to think about….
How is this making the Planet
Better ....?
How can we use this to make St. Louis a Smarter City?
Let’s make St. Louis a Smarter City
Smarter transportation
An opportunity to cut traffic by as much as 20%:
Cities can infuse intelligence into their entire transportation
system, improving drivers’ commutes, giving better
information to city planners, increasing the productivity
of businesses and raising citizens’ quality of life.
Smarter energy and utilities
An opportunity to reduce energy use by up to 15%:
By providing real-time information about the flow of
energy, an intelligent utility system helps citizens and
utilities make smarter, more responsible choices
about the way they buy, sell and manage electricity.
Smarter healthcare
An opportunity to lower the cost of therapy by
as much as 90%: A smarter healthcare system
forges partnerships and makes better use of
data in order to deliver excellent care, predict
and prevent disease and empower people to
make smarter choices.
Smarter public safety
Because up to 45% of a city’s budget goes
to public safety: A smarter city uses
advanced technologies and communitybased approaches to anticipate and
prevent—not just respond to—crimes and
Smarter education
An opportunity to nurture our most valuable
Smarter cities take a systemic view of their
education systems, evaluating students in multiple
dimensions and equipping them to perform better
both inside and outside traditional classroom
Smarter government services
An opportunity to deliver needed services to all
citizens: Increased information sharing and
collaboration drives smarter decision-making
across government agencies, service providers
and other constituents.
Your Smarter St Louis project
is due Friday Morning
During the week Your Team will come up with one idea on how to make
St. Louis a Smarter City.
It should be based on the Smarter companies you visit.
On Tuesday you will attend the Start Up Connection event. You will learn
how to create a Start-Up
Your team can use Power Point or a video to create your Smart Idea
Our Smarter St Louis Competition will take place on Friday Morning
Each team will have exactly 3.5 minutes in which to pitch their idea for a
Smarter St. Louis
Present your team’s idea for a Smarter St. Louis on
Friday for prizes….
Well Maybe not this prize!!
But we will have prizes…
That’s a Smarter Planet…..

Maria Sharapova Models Cell
Phone-Enabled 'Light Up' Dress
by Kendra Cunningham
— Jun 18th 2009 at 1:45PM
Maria Sharapova, a tennis star known
for her beauty as well as her overhand,
donned a dress that really lit up the room –
whenever her cell phone rang, that is.
Posed in the display window of London's
upscale department store Liberty, the former Wimbledon champion and current ambassador to
Sony Ericsson modeled the high-tech prototype, which connects to the wearer's cell phone via
Bluetooth technology and lights up when the phone rings.
Georgie Davies, a student at London College of Fashion, designed the knee-length, shortsleeve dress as part of a school project exploring the fusion of technology and fashion,
according to PR-Inside. On her inspiration for the dress, Davies told Reuters, "When you're in
a pub or a bar, you can never, ever hear your phone."
The Bluetooth-enabled lights exist in a group of small, white translucent scale embellishments
that run down one side of the dress from the shoulder to the hip. When the wearer's cell phone
rings, the scales light up.

Building a Smarter – Greener Store
When we build a new store on a previously-developed site (i.e., an
existing shopping center), we establish the new building pad using
materials recycled from the demolition of the existing buildings.
Building a Smarter Store
Night sky light pollution is reduced by our use of specific light fixtures in
our parking lots.
Building a Smarter Store
We have introduced lighting efficiencies in our stores,
to include:
•More efficient fluorescent lighting
•LED lighting in our refrigerated display cases
(significant reduction in energy use)
•Display case lighting that dims when there is no
traffic down an aisle, and brightens when a
customer does walk through the aisle (we chose to
dim the lights versus going totally dark, so as to
not give the impression that the aisle was closed
and also to not “shock” our customers with a
sudden flash of light when they do walk down the
Building a Smarter Store
Skylights are now standard in our new store designs, allowing us to
many times be able to turn off the florescent lighting in our stores during
the daytime hours.
Tomorrow’s Store
Building a Smarter Store
We recycle heavily (cardboard, paper, plastics, glass), and urge our customers
to do the same through our plastic bag recycling program, and by offering
reusable shopping bags.
The Start-Up Pitch
