A need for new technology is not the bottleneck at this point, leadership is the sine qua non of smarter cities. We need public and private leaders willing to take chances. They must be able to explain effectively why taking a portfolio approach to new investments in infrastructure - including information-based infrastructure to improve the ability of cities to serve their residents - makes sense. Only with an educated population will we realize the full potential of smarter cities.
