NY: Linking Lake George with Tech Valley, Environmental Protection with Economic Development | Performance Marine

NY: Linking Lake George with Tech Valley, Environmental Protection with Economic Development | Performance Marine | IBM - Industry and Competition | Scoop.it

 

What if the kind of advanced computational technology that monitors wave conditions, marine life and pollution levels and distributes information in real-time, which IBM is now testing in Ireland’s Galway Bay, were to come to the Adirondacks?

 

According to Dr. John Kelly, the Assembly Point resident who happens to lead IBM’s research teams and who addressed the Warren County Economic Development Corporation’s annual luncheon in Queensbury on May 17, it would mean not only smarter environmental management but economic development.

 

“We have the opportunity to do something big; we could build a model for balancing economic growth and environmental protection,” said Kelly, who, among other things, helped found the NanoTech complex in Albany.

 

In Galway Bay, IBM’s collaboration with the Marine Institute has led to the creation of new businesses by Irish technology companies and has strengthened local industries such as fishing and tourism.

 

Throughout the Hudson Valley, from IBM’s Research Center in Yorktown Heights to Albany and Saratoga County, technology has created “fantastic jobs and fantastic growth,” Kelly said, adding that the Adirondack Park could be the next place to benefit.

 

At the very least, Kelly suggested, a research project here would create jobs for scientists and technicians, who in turn would attract others to the Adirondacks.

“Techies want to live and work together, and the Adirondack environment provides them with many of the things they want,” he said.

 

“Talk about location, location, location: Warren County is a very special place.  Situated at the northern end of Tech Valley and the southern end of the Adirondacks, we are near the technology, the talent pool and the computation capability that is second to none,” said Kelly.

 

“What can we do here, with this special location and in this special place?” he asked.

 

The world is now in an era of “big data,” Kelly said. 90% of the world’s data has been created only in the last two years, generated by everything from smart phones to sensors.
