    Technology giant IBM is to create 200 new jobs in Dublin at its first ever IBM Smarter Cities Technology Centre, which aims to revolutionise how cities provide services like water and transport.

    The Centre will be located in Dublin where IBM will build a highly skilled and cross-disciplinary team to help cities around the world better understand, interconnect and manage their core operational systems such as transport, communication, water and energy

    The new Smarter Cities Technology Centre will create as many as 200 new roles in an IDA-supported investment of up to EUR 66 million over the next three years.

    The team of subject matter experts will work with city authorities, universities, small and large businesses as well as experts from IBM Research and the company's Software Development Lab in Ireland to research, develop and commercialise new ways of making city systems more connected, sustainable and intelligent.

    Hopefully the jobs actually materialise this time. I haven't seen any evidence of the 300 biomedical jobs they promised.
