Busan, South Korea

2017 challenge

Located on the Southeast portion of the Korean peninsula, Busan and its 3.5 million inhabitants is Korea’s largest international trading port. Due to its geographic location, Busan is prone to extreme weather and natural hazards like typhoons and earthquakes that cause annual damage to the city. Mayor Suh has requested the help of IBM to introduce cognitive analytics capabilities to Busan’s current disaster management infrastructure to create a safer, more resilient city.
