Minneapolis is turning to a new multi-million dollar tool to help improve the city.

It's called "Smarter Cities Technology" from IBM. It analyzes and predicts trends.

The system tracks in real time things like repairing potholes, improving transit, and hot spots for criminal activity.

Police and city employees will have access to the new data before figuring out what to do.

The new technology will cost Minneapolis about $3,000,000 over the next three years.
