System Dynamics and Smarter Cities

Hi folks,

At a BetaNYC meetup a few weeks ago, I did a lightning round on the BigIdea IBM is sponsoring in this year's BigApps 2014 contest.  We'll be teaming with BetaNYC to create a Smarter Cities Simulation combining Open Data with System Dynamics and new mapping interfaces you are all so great at building.  We think our submission has a great chance at winning and IBM is looking forward to working with you.

If you want to learn some more about System Dynamics and Simulations, tune in to this webinar next week.  The speaker is form a cloud based developer of online simulations.  I know Michael Bean and he's a great speaker and I'm sure you will enjoy this webinar.

Many Thanks and Best Regards,

Steve Adler,
IBM Information Strategist

Online Analytics: Bringing the power of System Dynamics within reach
Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Learn how visualization and presentation make simulations accessible to everyone

Election results can be hard to predict, but the implications of demographic changes can be visualized to help understand the dynamics of the electorate. Business decisions can have unexpected consequences, but those possibilities can be safely explored and taught using a thoughtfully constructed learning environment.

In this webinar, Michael Bean will present LatinoVoteMap, a tool used in the 2012 presidential election, along with a number of online simulators developed for business education and published by Harvard Business Review. These interactive tools quickly and effectively provide the insights and understanding that come from long hours of modeling and analysis to people without the requisite technical expertise. Michael will outline the design principles necessary to make world class simulators that many people can use.

Widespread acceptance requires that simulations be easily understandable, convenient to access, and enjoyable to use. The assumptions that people can change need to matter and the results shown have to be important. With this in place, stakeholders can go beyond listening to experts and filtering prebuilt scenarios to making policy interventions and exploring the results of their actions.

This webinar is the eighth in the Big Data, System Dynamics, and XMILE webinar series jointly sponsored by IBM, isee systems, and the OASIS XMILE Technical Committee. The series showcases exemplar applications of System Dynamics in the areas of environment, business, health care, and public policy and discuss new opportunities that will be available as the XMILE standard is adopted.

Space is limited for this FREE event, so register today.
