      Director and distinguished engineer in IBM's Enterprise Initiatives,
      Smarter Cities

      Dr. Colin Harrison was the inventor of the Smarter Cities technical

      offerings and a technology assessment on the Instrumented Planet.

      business team for Smarter Cities and for communicating the technical

      this insight to help cities get a better understanding of what is
      important to their citizens.
