The Secure Information Society: Ethical, Legal and Political Challenges

The Secure Information Society: Ethical, Legal and Political Challenges by Jörg Krüger
English | PDF | 2013 | 215 Pages | ISBN : 1447147626 | 3.3 MB

In our modern information societies, we not only use and welcome computers; we are highly dependent upon them. There is a downside of this kind of progress, however. Computers are not 100% reliable. They are insecure. They are vulnerable to attackers. They can either be attacked directly, to disrupt their services, or they can be abused in clever ways to do the bidding of an attacker as a dysfunctional user.

Sharing and Collaborative Economy: Future Scenarios, Technology, Creativity and Social Innovation

Sharing and Collaborative Economy: Future Scenarios, Technology, Creativity and Social Innovation by Enric Bas
English | EPUB | 2022 | 92 Pages | ISBN : 3030938816 | 0.2 MB

This book presents a foresight-based exploratory analysis on the coming post-capitalist society and the transforming role of technology, creativity, and social innovation in the new economy. Topics analyzed include innovation culture, the role of politics, legal protection, the digitalization of social life, as well as vulnerabilities and opportunities of the Sharing & Collaborative Economy (ShE). ShE is here essentially understood just as a proof of the current Zeitgeist; a sign of its time. A time, where the formal social structures and institutions which traditionally have shaped and framed human societies are - slowly but progressively- getting dissolved into a new emerging social system, complex and mutant by nature.

Diffusion Erneuerbarer Energietechnologien: Eine empirische Analyse unter besonderer Berücksichtigung von Rohstoffpreisen by Nathalie Sick
Deutsch | PDF | 2014 | 324 Pages | ISBN : 365805302X | 2.1 MB

Die Energiewende, der industrieübergreifende Rohstoffwandel von fossilen zu nachwachsenden Rohstoffen und die aktuellen Entwicklungen an den Rohstoffmärkten geben Anlass, Rohstoffpreise als marktbasierte Einflussfaktoren auf die Diffusion Erneuerbarer Energietechnologien zu untersuchen. Im Rahmen einer multivariaten Regressionsanalyse analysiert Nathalie Sick den Effekt von Rohstoffpreisen im Zusammenspiel mit weiteren Faktoren auf die Diffusion von Biomasse und Geothermie sowie Biokraftstoffen, Solarenergie und Windkraft. Über theoretische Implikationen für die Forschung im Bereich der Technologiediffusion hinaus, leitet die Autorin Handlungsempfehlungen für politische Institutionen sowie Energieunternehmen und Investoren ab.
