EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Security technology convergence, which refers to the incorporation of computing, networking, and communications technologies into electronic physical security systems, was first introduced in the 1970s with the advent of computer-based access control and alarm systems. As the pace of information technology (IT) advances continued to accelerate, the physical security industry continued to lag behind IT advances by at least two to three years. Security Technology Convergence Insights explores this sometimes problematic convergence of physical security technology and information technology and its impact on security departments, IT departments, vendors, and management. Includes material culled directly from author's column in Security Technology Executive Easy-to-read question and answer format Includes real-world examples to enhance key lessons learned

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

|Foreword| The annual International Agriculture Innovation Conference (IAIC) series started in October 2016 as an assembly platform for leading researchers, educators, and developers to present, discuss, and examine various challenging issues relating to agricultural production and innovation. In January 2018, the International Association for Agricultural Sustainability (IAAS) took IAIC under its wing with expectations that IAIC expands its influence by inviting more agriculture-related professionals to participate in conferences. I sincerely welcome you to join our conference and to share your ideas on agriculture sustainability with us. First, I would like to thank the 2017 conference participants who successfully helped us create the IAIC. The IAIC 2017 would not have been successful without their support and cooperation. Next, I especially appreciate the assistance and support from the IAIC 2017 conference sponsors — Hug Nimman Hotel, Chiang Mei. Last but not least, the keynote speakers of IAIC 2017. This book would not have been published without their efforts and contributions. In order to improve current agricultural circumstances and attain environmental sustainability, agriculture innovation has become the primary strategy nowadays toward achieving these goals. The concept of adapting agricultural innovation to every phase of agricultural production and management is the foundation for this book. This is the sequel of book Case Studies: Insights On Agriculture Innovation 2016 which collects information on various agricultural innovation ideas and technologies that have been applied or are being developed for agricultural operations and management in different countries. I believe this book will provide you with new and inspiring ideas about the future of agriculture development, and illustrate how innovations in methods and techniques influence agriculture production, environmental sustainability, and the quality of people’s lives around the world.(Dr. Cheng-I Wei, Chairman of IAAS) |Contents| Foreword Preface Introduction of Authors About IAAS Chapter 01.Agricultural Innovation for Profitability and Environmental Sustainability.Cheng-I Wei / Alfreda Wei Chapter 02.Time-Orientation in Sustainable Development of Agriculture versus the UN Sustainable Development Goals.Göran Svensson / Carmen Padin Fabeiro Chapter 03.Sustainable and Nutritional Benefits of Edible Insect Production and Distribution as a Meat or Protein Substitute.Miranda Mirosa / John Birch / Claudia Clarkson Chapter 04.The Challenges of Agricultural Innovation and Climate Change Adaptation in Developing Country.Nirote Sinnarong / Olalekan Israel Aiikulola Chapter 05.Technological Convergence and Entrepreneurial Opportunities.Tan Wee Liang Chapter 06.The Conceptual of Decision Support System for Halal Supply Chain Innovation.Rika Ampuh Hadiguna Chapter 07.Innovative Practices for Sustainable Agriculture in a Global Environment.Pamela Rae Becker Chapter 08.Risk Management - Applying Systematic Risk Management Methodology into Wild Berry Based Business.Pekka Kess Chapter 09.Key Trends in Indian Agriculture.Kothandapani Ganesh Chapter 10.New Internet Marketing Strategy: the Application of the CCB Model.Tzong-Ru Lee / Chun-Yu Chien

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The book aims to provide a broad overview of various topics of the Internet of Things (IoT) from the research and development priorities to enabling technologies, architecture, security, privacy, interoperability and industrial applications. It is intended to be a standalone book in a series that covers the Internet of Things activities of the IERC ? Internet of Things European Research Cluster from technology to international cooperation and the global "state of play". The book builds on the ideas put forward by the European research Cluster on the Internet of Things Strategic Research Agenda and presents global views and state of the art results on the challenges facing the research, development and deployment of IoT at the global level. Today we see the integration of Industrial, Business and Consumer Internet which is bringing together the Internet of People, Internet of Things, Internet of Energy, Internet of Vehicles, Internet of Media, Services and Enterprises in forming the backbone of the digital economy, the digital society and the foundation for the future knowledge and innovation based economy in supporting solutions for the emerging challenges of public health, aging population, environmental protection and climate change, the conservation of energy and scarce materials, enhancements to safety and security and the continuation and growth of economic prosperity. Penetration of smartphones and advances in machine to machine and wireless communication technology will be the main drivers for IoT development. The IoT contribution is in the increased value of information created by the number of interconnections among things and the transformation of the processed information into knowledge shared into the Internet of Everything. The connected devices are part of ecosystems connecting people, processes, data, and things which are communicating in the cloud using the increased storage and computing power and pushing for standardization of communication and metadata. In this context the next generation of the Cloud technologies will need to be flexible enough to scale autonomously, adaptive enough to handle constantly changing connections and resilient enough to stand up to the huge flows in data that will occur. For 2025 analysts forecast that there will be six devices per human on the planet, which means 50 billion more connected devices over the next 12 years. The Internet of Things market is connected to this devices growth from industrial machine to machine (M2M) systems, smart meters and wireless sensors. Enabling technologies such as nanoelectronics, MEMS, embedded systems, intelligent device management, smart phones, telematics, smart network infrastructure, cloud computing and software technologies will create new products, new services, new interfaces by creating smart environments and smart spaces with applications ranging from Smart Cities, smart transport, buildings, energy, grid, to smart health and life. Technical topics discussed in the book include: Introduction Internet of Things in a wider context: Time for convergence. Internet of Things Strategic Research Agenda Interconnection and Integration of the Physical World into the Digital World Scalable Architectures for IoT Applications IoT standardisation requirements and initiatives.

Our Biometric Future

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Since the 1960s, a significant effort has been underway to program computers to “see” the human face—to develop automated systems for identifying faces and distinguishing them from one another—commonly known as Facial Recognition Technology. While computer scientists are developing FRT in order to design more intelligent and interactive machines, businesses and states agencies view the technology as uniquely suited for “smart” surveillance—systems that automate the labor of monitoring in order to increase their efficacy and spread their reach. Tracking this technological pursuit, Our Biometric Future identifies FRT as a prime example of the failed technocratic approach to governance, where new technologies are pursued as shortsighted solutions to complex social problems. Culling news stories, press releases, policy statements, PR kits and other materials, Kelly Gates provides evidence that, instead of providing more security for more people, the pursuit of FRT is being driven by the priorities of corporations, law enforcement and state security agencies, all convinced of the technology’s necessity and unhindered by its complicated and potentially destructive social consequences. By focusing on the politics of developing and deploying these technologies, Our Biometric Future argues not for the inevitability of a particular technological future, but for its profound contingency and contestability.
