Public Safety

The Smarter City, Public Safety

By 2050, nearly three-quarters of our planet will live in cities. Public safety will be a key factor in determining which city they choose.

Public officials are turning to the same technology advances that businesses have been using -- autonomic sense-and-respond capabilities, analytics, visualization and computational modeling--to make our public safety systems smarter, and drive a fundamental shift from responding to events to anticipating and preventing them, when possible.
