Today is a big day in the life of two talented movie directors Eran May-Raz and Daniel Lazo. Their first short sci-fi film, “Sight,” acclaimed by viewers and critics, premiered in 2012. It features gamified augmented reality smart contact lenses and a strangely familiar-looking world set in our near future. Now, after almost ten years later, the pair is back with the full feature, upgraded and very different and yet so consistently captivating version, Sight: Extended. I am an executive producer of the movie, and I cannot be any more proud.
In previous issues, we discussed in-depth self-driving cars and technologies, and we also dealt with artificial intelligence. If these topics have any common denominator, it is definitely data and data processing. As it was already mentioned earlier in a conversation, “data is the oil of today”. However, the above-mentioned topics are only the tip of the iceberg, the statement is not an exaggeration; it is enough to think of most GDPR regulations, which affect everyone. About how this slightly elusive concept becomes more and more part of our everyday life, how seriously we take it, and how much we can look after it, we interviewed Arthur Keleti, a cybersecurity expert and futurist.
The expression smart city, as it is often used in English speaking countries, could be translated to Hungarian as liveable city, where the primary goal is to make the lives of residents easier by improving both the physical and digital infrastructure. Yet the concept comes with various, previously hidden risks. Hackers today are no longer pimpled teens hiding away in basements, but hacktivists who could easily paralyze the smart city’s complete public transport system in protest against, let’s say, free passes for seniors. However, there is no security without analysis, says T-Systems Security Strategist Arthur Keleti in an interview following his presentation at ISACA about cities of the future, cybercrime and the reasons why we don’t fear the internet enough.
