# Friday math movie - Smarter Math: Equations for a smarter planet

By Murray Bourne, 30 Jul 2010

This is an IBM commercial. I'm not sure about "math can do anything", but it's encouraging to see a positive message about math for a change.

[Unfortunately, this video no longer exists.]

According to IBM's "Smarter Planet", the 3 ways they want to contribute to a smarter planet are:

- Instrument the world's systems
- Interconnect them
- Make them intelligent

The following video explains how math can make our planet more intelligent. (I was worried he was going to push Internet fridges, but I was spared.)

One has to wonder - is urbanization such a great idea...?
