ICT Unbounded Social Impact of Bright ICT Adoption Book Excerpt:

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the IFIP WG 8.6 International Working Conference "ICT Unbounded, Social Impact of Bright ICT Adoption" on Transfer and Diffusion of IT, TDIT 2019, held in Accra, Ghana, in June 2019. The 30 revised full papers and 4 short papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 72 submissions. The papers focus on Bright Information and Communication Technology, a concept that entails the development of relevant technologies, business models, public policies, social norms, international agreements, metrics of measuring national progress and preventing undesirable activities on the Internet.

Global Trends of Smart Cities Book Excerpt:

Global Trends of Smart Cities provides integrated analysis of 135 cities that participated in the IBM’s Smarter Cities Challenge in 2010–2017. It establishes evidence-based benchmarking of city geographies, city sizes, governance structures, and local planning contexts in smart cities. This book uses a combination of descriptive statistical analysis and real-world case study narratives to evaluate the ways in which each individual urban variable or their combination matter in the diversity of smart city approaches around the globe. It is acknowledged that the Smarter Cities Challenge offers a particular set of smart initiatives and is not representative of all smart cities around the world. Nevertheless, the global presence of the Challenge across five continents and its involvement with 135 cities of all size and socioeconomic status provides a solid foundation to conduct comparative research on smart cities. Considering limited comparative research available in the smart city debate, this book makes significant contribution in understanding the state of smart city development in urban governments worldwide. Offers an integrated assessment of smart cities using a combination of statistical analysis and real-world case study narrations Compares smart city interventions from the 135 cities that participated in the Smarter Cities Challenge with detailed case study narrations included for 17 cities Demonstrates the ways in which geography, size, governance, and local planning context—each individually and in combination with each other—influence smart city development around the globe Develops an urban research perspective to the smart city discourse otherwise dominated by digital and IT specialists, engineers, and business experts Identifies the North–South divide as the most influential factor explaining how smart urbanism is framed worldwide and argues that the future of smart city development depends on how "smart" approaches the ongoing and increasing level of inequity and inequality not only within our cities but also at the transregional and transnational levels

Connected Environments for the Internet of Things Book Excerpt:

This comprehensive text/reference presents a broad-ranging overview of device connectivity in distributed computing environments, supporting the vision of an Internet of Things (IoT). Expert perspectives are provided by an international selection of researchers from both industry and academia, covering issues of communication, security, privacy, interoperability, networking, access control, and authentication. In addition to discussing state-of-the-art research and practice, the book includes corporate analyses offering a balanced view of benefits and limitations, and numerous case studies illustrating the challenges and practical solutions. Topics and features: discusses issues of security and privacy in connected environments, with a specific focus on the impact of the IoT paradigm on enterprise information systems; examines the challenges of managing big data in IoT environments, and proposes cloud computing-based solutions to the limitations inherent in the IoT paradigm; suggests approaches to overcome service-level interoperability problems in the IoT environment; introduces a mobile IoT simulator designed to evaluate the behavior of IoT systems, in addition to a novel approach to manage hyper-connectivity in the IoT; describes the use of the Essence framework to model software development methods, and highlights the benefits of integrating data from smart buildings and IoT devices; presents an asymmetric schema matching mechanism for IoT interoperability, and explores the topic of automatic provenance capture at the middleware level; reviews emerging network topologies and communication technologies, and advises on the adoption of a data distribution service as a middleware platform for IoT systems. This practically-oriented volume serves as a complete reference for students, researchers and practitioners of distributed computing, providing insights into the latest approaches, technologies, and frameworks relevant to the IoT environment.

Internet Service Provider Liability for Copyright and Trade Mark Infringement Book Excerpt:

This book critically evaluates the EU regulatory framework for the liability of host Internet Service Providers (ISPs) for copyright and trade mark infringements and provides a cluster of novel recommendations for its improvement. The book recommends the imposition of a duty of care to host ISPs to curb the dissemination of unauthorised works and counterfeit goods, the ascription of a transparency obligation to host ISPs towards their users, and the establishment of a supervisory authority for host ISPs. Host ISPs have facilitated the dissemination of content amongst users and the purchase of goods online, enabling copyright holders and brand owners to attract a greater audience for their works and goods. However, their services have attracted a high number of copyright and trade mark violations, too. Neither Article 14 of the e-Commerce Directive nor Article 17 of the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive provide a solid response to the issue of host ISPs' liability. This book is a valuable resource for researchers in IT and IP law and offers a new perspective for resolving online IP disputes.
