The City of San Jose and Intel are working together to help stimulate the local economy and embrace their "Green Vision" efforts by collaborating for Smart Cities USA. City officials hope to embrace the Internet of Things and utilize the Intel Smart City Demonstration Platform so residents have real-time, local data that can help guide their energy consumption and daily activities.




"To help improve quality of life in San Jose, we're exploring new ways of capturing and sharing localized information to our residents," said Kerrie Romanow, San Jose Environmental Services Department director. "With better information, we tend to make better decisions. We're optimistic that the real-time air quality data will help our staff understand how we can positively influence the environment right here in San José as well as regionally and globally."


When people think of Silicon Valley, they tend to think more of San Francisco - but over the next 30 years, the population of San Jose is expected to increase to 1.4 million. Moving forward, the city hopes to continue attracting tech and biotech companies, and launching "smart city" initiatives will continue to draw attention.
