By combining Artificial Intelligence and Spatial Computing, we are fundamentally transforming the very nature of information, and the myriad ways we communicate with each other about anything, and everything.Deceptively powerful and stunningly beautiful, this monumental leap forward in conveying information effectively has always been right there in front of us, waiting to be unlocked, hiding in plain sight. All it took was the convergence of human ingenuity, artificial intelligence, and the rise of a medium capable of magic.Welcome to The Age of "Smart Information".

This publication highlights the fast-moving technological advancement and infiltration of Artificial Intelligence into society. Concepts of evolution of society through interconnectivity are explored, together with how the fusion of human and technological interaction leading to Augmented Humanity is fast becoming more than just an endemic phase, but a cultural phase shift to digital societies. It aims to balance both the positive progressive outlooks such developments bring with potential issues that may stem from innovation of this kind, such as the invasive procedures of bio hacking or ethical connotations concerning the usage of digital twins. This publication will also give the reader a good level of understanding on fundamental cyber defence principles, interactions with Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) and the Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence (C3I) decision-making framework. A detailed view of the cyber-attack landscape will be garnered; touching on the tactics, techniques and procedures used, red and blue teaming initiatives, cyber resilience and the protection of larger scale systems. The integration of AI, smart societies, the human-centric approach and Augmented Humanity is discernible in the exponential growth, collection and use of [big] data; concepts woven throughout the diversity of topics covered in this publication; which also discusses the privacy and transparency of data ownership, and the potential dangers of exploitation through social media. As humans are become ever more interconnected, with the prolificacy of smart wearable devices and wearable body area networks, the availability of and abundance of user data and metadata derived from individuals has grown exponentially. The notion of data ownership, privacy and situational awareness are now at the forefront in this new age.
While this is still true, the facts on the ground about what people need to be

even faster in the future. The world has become far more complex, perhaps

A public policy leader addresses how artificial intelligence is transforming the future of labor—and what we can do to protect the role of workers. As computer technology advances with dizzying speed, human workers face an ever-increasing threat of obsolescence. In Human Work In the Age of Smart Machines, Jamie Merisotis argues that we can—and must—rise to this challenge by preparing to work alongside smart machines doing that which only humans can: thinking critically, reasoning ethically, interacting interpersonally, and serving others with empathy. The president and CEO of Lumina Foundation, Merisotis offers a roadmap for the large-scale, radical changes we must make in order to find abundant and meaningful work for ourselves in the 21st century. His vision centers on developing our unique capabilities as humans through learning opportunities that deliver fair results and offer a broad range of credentials. By challenging long-held assumptions and expanding our concept of work, Merisotis argues that we can harness the population’s potential, encourage a deeper sense of community, and erase a centuries-long system of inequality.

The mainstream media is responsible to raise the level of consciousness of the general populace. But in reality there is a big void here. The media is so engulfed in its TRP ratings that politics, Bollywood, and cricket take the center stage. Hardly any space is spared for opinions, scholarly inputs, and the likes. The book offers an in-depth analysis of the concept of Smart City. The intention of the author is twofold: one, to propagate the concept of Smart City; two, to explain what it takes to be a smart city from the conventional city.
People moving around cities are more and more experiencing the need of and
the opportunities offered by getting information. It is frequently requested to know
about the presence of services and shops, the best way to get to a specific place,

This book offers an overview of sustainability and urban mobility in the context of urban planning – topics that are of considerable interest in the development of smart cities. Environmental sustainability is universally recognized as a fundamental condition for any urban policy or urban management activity, while mobility is essential for the survival of complex urban systems. The new opportunities offered by innovations in the mobility of people, goods and information, as well as radically changing interactions and activities are transforming cities. Including contributions by urban planning scholars, the book provides an up-to-date picture of the latest studies and innovative policies and practices in Italy, of particular interest due to its spatial, functional and social peculiarities. Sustainability and mobility must form the basis of “smart planning” – a new dimension of urban planning linked to two main innovations: procedural innovation in the management of territorial transformations and the technological innovation of the generation, processing and distribution of data (big data) for the creation of new "digital environments" such as GIS, BIM, models of augmented and mixed reality, useful for describing changes in human settlement in real time.

This pamphlet argues that the byzantine complexity of Britain's bureaucracy may confound New Labour's ambitions to reform the state. It presents the case for a government that is simple, customised, convenient and cost-effective whenever the citizen deals with it. It is the precursor to a planned White Paper, Better Government.

This companion volume to The Information Revolution and National Security (CSIS, 1996) brings together a diverse set of thinkers from the policy analysis, military, government, and academic communities to consider the implications of the information revolution for international security. The discussion includes military affairs, but also considers the global social, economic, and political changes occurring because of the information revolution and their potential effects on the international security environment - for example, the impact of global information networks on national economies and of new information technologies on diplomacy and governance. This provocative, informed exploration is written for policymakers, legislators, and others seeking an overview of key global security issues accompanying this technology revolution.
