The article, The Smart City needs full integration, talks about the use of technology to make cities smart and thereby improve people’s lives. However, to succeed it is necessary to develop integrated information systems. The collaboration between Brazilian and European partners in the IMPReSS project is mentioned as an example of how cities and the government can benefit from new projects.

Eduardo Souto from UFAM was interviewed for the article and he explains how the smart energy management system implemented at Teatro Amazonas in Manaus will reduce energy consumption of both lights and air conditioning. Eduardo Souto is cited: “We will create algorithms to predict where the energy expenditure will be the biggest, and then explain to the state government how and where it is possible to save energy.”
