As an architect and urbanist, I am deeply passionate about creating sustainable and livable cities that can meet the needs of current and future generations. That’s why I am excited to introduce “One Smart World” by Emin Hasic, a comprehensive guide to building smarter and more resilient cities that truly serve the public good.

“One Smart World” is not just a celebration of technological progress – it is also a call to action. The book challenges us to think beyond the traditional boundaries of urban planning and design, and to explore new approaches that are more responsive to the needs of our communities. The author encourages us to engage in collaborative decision-making, embrace diversity, work towards social equity and inclusion.

 

As an architect and urbanist, I find this book to be an invaluable resource. It provides practical guidance on how to design and plan for Smart Cities, while also offering a compelling vision for the future of urbanization. I appreciate the author’s commitment to sustainability, resilience, and social responsibility, and their ability to inspire us to dream bigger and work towards a better future.

Acknowledgements

With great humility, Emin wishes to express his deepest gratitude to the numerous pioneers, philosophers, and visionaries who have paved the way for the exploration and advancement of Smart Cities. Their unrelenting passion and devotion to creating more intelligent, sustainable, and livable urban spaces have served as a constant source of inspiration and enlightenment throughout his journey.

 

With a deep sense of reverence and gratitude, Emin acknowledges the invaluable contributions and inspirations of the great minds who have paved the way for the development of Smart Cities. Without their vision and wisdom, the task of writing this book would have been daunting and insurmountable. In particular, Emin would like to give special mention to William J. Mitchell, a professor of architecture and media arts and sciences at MIT, who played a pivotal role in nurturing Emin’s interest in Smart Cities during their private mentorship from 2004 to 2010. Unfortunately, Mitchell passed away on the 11th of June 2010 due to cancer. His influential writings on the intersection of technology and the built environment are widely renowned, and his impact on Emin’s passion for this field is immeasurable. Emin humbly recognizes that he stands on the shoulders of giants who have laid the foundation for a new era of urban development that promises to transform the way we live, work, and interact with one another.

 

Emin expresses sincere appreciation to Mr. Antonis Bezas, the former Greek Deputy Minister of Economy and Finance, for his dedicated volunteerism and invaluable contributions in providing extensive insights on the Municipality of Igoumenitsa and its neighbouring towns. It was through the personal vision of Mr. Bezas that Emin was inspired to undertake a project focused on the unique hypothetical case of Igoumenitsa (Chapter XX, Pages 559 to 596), which serves as a compelling exemplar of how a small urban region can be transformed into a smart city and re-ignite its rebirth in placing a stop to the brain-drain and exodus of its youth.

 

Emin expresses gratitude to Athanasios Venetis for providing him with a solid understanding of the architecture and urbanization landscape of the region and his personal vision, and to Thomas Liolios for offering him an in-depth understanding of the history, arts, and cultural landscape of the region. To Ilias Lambrousis for showing him the entire landscape of the region and its potential, and Thomas Dimas for introducing him to countless locals, enabling him to gather their views, visions and thoughts.

 

Emin owes a debt of gratitude that can never be fully repaid to his family, friends, and soulmate Billie Rose. Their unwavering support and encouragement have been the driving force behind his pursuit of knowledge and the realization of his dreams. Their love and unwavering belief in Emin have been his anchor and his fuel, providing him with the courage and determination to face the challenges that lie ahead.

 

Lastly, Emin expresses his sincerest appreciation to his readers for their interest in Smart Cities and their willingness to explore new ideas and solutions for the future of our urban world. Emin hopes that this book will serve as a catalyst for change, inspiring readers to become part of the Smart City movement and contribute to building a better world for all.

 

Let us embrace the challenges and opportunities that lie before us with open hearts and open minds. Together, let us create a brighter, smarter, and more sustainable future for generations to come.

 

May we be blessed in our endeavors.

Welcome

Welcome to ONE SMART WORLD, a journey into the future of Smart Cities. As the author of this book, I am thrilled to share with you the possibilities and opportunities that a smarter world offers.

 

The world is rapidly evolving, and technology is at the forefront of this evolution. Smart Cities are the next big thing in this evolution, and the potential benefits they offer are vast. The vision of a Smart City is not only about technology, but it’s also about creating a better life for its citizens.

 

This book is written with a vision to provide insights into Smart Cities – their design, development, and how they can benefit everyone. It is an inclusive guide, written for everyone from the everyday citizen to students, educators, decision makers, investors, influencers and stakeholders.

 

One of the most exciting aspects of Smart Cities is the opportunities they offer for innovation and entrepreneurship. By fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration, Smart Cities can be a hub for start-ups and businesses to thrive. As a result, cities can create new jobs, new products, and services that benefit everyone.

 

I believe that Smart Cities are the way forward, and they offer a new world of opportunities. By embracing technology and innovation, we can create cities that are smarter, more sustainable, and more equitable. I hope that this book inspires you to learn more about Smart Cities and how they can benefit our world.

Acknowledgements

This book is the culmination of a dream, to bring a pragmatic and contemporary approach of the GDPR to every corner of society. The realization of this dream would not have been possible without the unwavering support and guidance from a number of individuals.

 

First and foremost, Emin would like to express his deepest gratitude to his partners Jim Fakos and George Stamatakos, co-founders of the Global Data Protection Agency (GDPA), and Stephanie Fakos, instrumental in convincing Emin to come out of retirement in 2018, which led to the creation of GDPA and the MAIT Academy.

 

Davor.P and Stephanie.H, who were not only his foundational mentors and teachers in the field of knowledge and information management but also his guiding lights. The years spent together and the lessons learned will remain with Emin for a lifetime. He would also like to thank Ian Morrison, who shared a journey into the world of technology with him, his never-say-die attitude and loyalty towards people is what makes Ian an asset to whoever is fortunate in getting to know him.

 

To his sister Zenet (Jenet) Hasic, who has always been there for him, her unwavering support is greatly treasured, and Ilias Boutsiavaris, a childhood friend and mentor now for over 15 years, his achievements and the respect shown to Ilias by his peers are exemplary and has been a role model to many in both his personal and professional life. Ioannis Papagiannis (Attorney at Law Greece), for all you do and represent, and an honorable and trustworthy professional. Milton Levin, his business acumen and philanthropic contributions to society command full respect.

 

Emin would like to extend his heartfelt thanks to Thomas Dimas and his wife Effie Dimas for the warmth and kindness they extended to him and his wife Billie from the moment they set foot in Greece. Their unwavering support has made their journey in Greece an enjoyable and memorable experience. He is also deeply grateful to Stephanos Papadopoulos, a young man from Greece whom he continues to have the privilege of mentoring, teaching and guiding in the field of privacy via GDPA.

 

In addition to those acknowledged, the following individuals have also played an important role either in a personal and/or professional level: Faisal Rashid (Apiron AI), Ilias Lambrousis, Lito Sfakiotaki, Dimitris Vlahos, Manolis Bezas (a brilliant young interviewer), Hamza Wajid, George Lioukas, Ilias Konstantinou and certain members of various global intelligence communities, whose names cannot be disclosed due to the nature of their current active services.

 

This book is a reflection of the unwavering support, love, inspiration, and guidance of Emin’s wife, partner, and soulmate, Billie Rose. From the moment she entered his life, she has been a constant source of encouragement, always by his side to listen, to support, and to believe in him. Her steadfast belief has been a source of constant inspiration and motivation. Her guidance has been invaluable in helping him navigate the challenges of life and work. This book would not have been possible without her, and Emin is forever grateful for her presence in his life.

 

Finally, to the most important two people since day one, Emin’s father Djevad (Jack) Hasic who is still going strong and to his mother Konstantina Tsalikis Hasic, who passed away after a 6-year battle with cancer. Words are not enough to express what his heart and soul truly feel about the sacrifices they made throughout their lives for the family.

 

Emin is grateful for the opportunity to share his experience with you, and extends his best wishes for a fulfilling and rewarding journey as you engage with this publication.

 

May God bless you all in your endeavours.

Welcome

Humanity has arrived at a point in time where trust has become a scarce commodity for a number of reasons. The rapid advancement of technology has led to an unprecedented level of interconnectedness, and with it, a sense of unease and uncertainty. The easy spread of misinformation, the erosion of personal privacy, and the growing power of large corporations and governments have all contributed to a climate of cynicism and mistrust.

 

At the same time, however, we as individuals find ourselves on both ends of the compliance spectrum. We want our own privacy protected, and yet we use other people’s personal data every day in some commercial manner to make a living. We want to trust that our personal information is being handled responsibly, and yet we know that our data is being collected, shared, and analyzed in ways that we may not fully understand or approve of. This creates a paradox, as we want to protect our own privacy and trust in institutions, but we also want to use the benefits of technology to our advantage.

 

This is where regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) come in. The GDPR is an attempt to reconcile these conflicting desires by giving individuals greater control over their personal data and holding companies accountable for how they collect, use, and protect that data. By giving people more control over their own information, the GDPR helps to restore a sense of trust in this digital age.

 

In addition, by holding companies accountable for their data practices, the GDPR and other similar and evolving regulations such as the APP and the CCPA, helps to create a level of transparency and trust in the way that businesses operate. This, in turn, helps to build trust in institutions more broadly, as people come to see that there are rules in place to protect their rights and interests.

 

The GDPR is a step towards creating a more just and equitable digital environment, one in which individuals’ rights and autonomy are respected, and in which trust can be rebuilt. However, it is important to remember that the regulations alone cannot solve the problem of mistrust. It is up to us, as individuals and as a society, to continue to demand accountability and transparency from the institutions that shape our world. And it is also up to us to be aware of the role we play in this dynamic, as we are both data subjects and data users.

 

Once upon a time, society was divided into three sectors, with the middle class holding and controlling the balance of trust. However, over the past two decades, the erosion of the middle class has led to the disappearance of trust, leaving two sectors: one fighting for survival and the other for control. This is where the problem lies, and regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are the seeds for the birth of a new middle class where trust will once again bring harmony to our lives.

 

As the author of this publication, I have spent over three decades gaining experience in providing a transparent end-to-end overview and detailed understanding of data privacy without the complexity often associated with these topics. With the birth of the GDPR, my goal was to create a resource that can be understood by individuals across the spectrum of society and to help them take the necessary steps towards rebuilding a world of trust.

 

I hope that this publication delivers the information you are seeking and that you find it enjoyable. At the end of this book you will find a page with a gift from me to you.

 

Thank you for your purchase and support.

Emin Hasic (Data Privacy Executive).
