IBM Smart Cities team comes to Knoxville

KNOXVILLE (WVLT) -- A special group of computer experts will be in Knoxville over the coming weeks, hoping to help people lower their utility costs.

The IBM Smart Cities team is a 5-member squad, with people from three different countries, who go around the United States, hoping to help them solve technological problems.

Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero said Tuesday two big problems are people's inability to pay their utility bills at times, and a lack of energy-efficient homes.

Rogero said she hopes the team will be able to help teach Knoxville better ways to optimize their homes and lower their utilities bills at the same time.

The consulting sessions will be worth $400,000.
