PEDRO PERACIO

My name is Pedro Peracio.  I work in the City Hall of Rio de Janeiro, as the city's Chief Digital Officer.

TITLE CARD: True Stories of the Connected.

PEDRO PERACIO

The position was inspired to handle the social networks connecting City Hall and the citizens.  You can communicate a lot of information to people and help them in their daily lives.

PEDRO PERACIO

For a long time the city was really abandoned, with little investment and large companies leaving the city. With the upcoming Olympics we had a chance to reinvent the city.

TITLE CARD: The Center of Operations, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

PEDRO PERACIO

Previously, when you had a major disruption, a flood, an accident, // we didn't have much agility to respond rapidly. The Center of Operations // unites more than 30 entities in the same location paying attention 24 hours a day.

ALEXANDRE CARDEMAN

We began using social networks to locate accidents. Today, citizens themselves inform us using an app called WAZE. We're developing plans to send text messages to citizens near an affected area to guide them away from problems.

PEDRO PERACIO

If you have a streetlight that's out you take a photo of it.  You send the photo, and GPS automatically finds your location. You receive a text back saying how long it will take to get the repair done.

PEDRO PERACIO

When it comes to the Internet of Everything, The Center of Operations is a good example.

TITLE CARD: By 2020, the Internet of Everything has the potential to connect 50 BILLION people, processes, data and things. 

ALEXANDRE CARDEMAN

We try to communicate with people in real time.  This is where society is heading. I think 10 years from now we'll need vastly greater communication that's much faster.

PEDRO PERACIO

A big advance in the future is the devices that you wear will be integrated into your daily life, knowing when you get into your car, how long it will take to get to work, if it will rain, or if there's an accident. Then you take another route. No matter where you are, it will seamlessly provide information, to help you in your daily life.

TITLE CARD: People. Process. Data. Things. CONNECTED. The Internet of Everything.
