Yesterday team San Isidro kicked off their project with Dr. Gustavo Posse, Mayor of San Isidro and his team from the office of Modernization led by Eduardo Garcia Beaumont. The team met many of the stakeholders they will interview over the coming weeks.
As we ended the official kick off presentation, I presented the Mayor with a Smarter Cities Challenge cap, telling him he is now part of our team.
After the kick off we began our interviews and ended the day with a tour of the Central Hospital. Our focus at the hospital was to look at their cooling systems and determine where we can monitor the health of the units. Team member Nancy Greco will share more about these IoT devices in her blog later today.
Our team is made up of a diverse group of leaders in IBM. Each bringing expertise to the problem we will help solve.
