Electric Power Grid

Large scale autonomic systems can understand their own state and, if there are failures, recognize the situation then take actions to reconfigure. These systems can be applied to concerns in business and government about what is happening and what works best or what leads to failure. The application of machine learning systems can produce a significant return on investment in a wide range of projects, from live video scene tracking for security monitoring to prediction of effective financial investment patterns, using data on social networks of investors and analysts.

Innovative Building Operating System Provides the Brain for Smarter Cities

Software Project Pricing models

With the current focus on demonstrating the value of the projects we do for Con-Edison, I have been reading up on the different methodologies that can be used for evaluating projects. In addition, as part of the Technology in Business Management course that I am taking, we had gone through 2 of them - the Net Present Value and the Options Pricing Model. The book - Strategic Decision Making for IT Managers by Lucas (1999), briefly explains these two methods as well.
