Gerry Mooney, Vice President - IBM Global Smarter Cities

Our guest this coming week is Gerry Mooney of IBM who will lead a discussion about the way we currently address our transportation problems. While we have great expectations for the application of technology in all modes of transportation, the real success is understanding how to balance the right mix of physical and digital solutions. Can this combination deliver better outcomes and better use of tax payer dollars?
