First of a series of interviews with this visionary author and strategic advisor on Intelligent Buildings and mission-critical infrastructure, James Carlini. Carlini was the Keynote Speaker on Intelligent Infrastructure & Cybersecurity at a recent Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) Intelligent Buildings and Digital Homes Forum in San Diego, California a couple of years ago, Keynote speaker at the Bronzeville International Summit in Chicago, Illinois and has since appeared on several television interviews discussing the new trends in Intelligent Infrastructure. He is author of many whitepapers on this area and others in cybersecurity. He developed and taught courses on strategic technology management at Northwestern University for two decades in both the undergrad and Executive Masters programs in Communication Systems.
His book, LOCATION LOCATION CONNECTIVITY, is a book focused on the convergence of real estate, infrastructure, technology, and their combined impact on regional economic development. He discusses cutting-edge projects he was involved in including the planning and design of the Chicago 911 Center. He also has solid concepts, like the Platform for Commerce (his definition of Infrastructure which was adopted and referred to by both the US Department of Homeland Security and the US Army Corps of Engineers). The book also includes his witty Carlini-isms, valuable pragmatic insights he has learned throughout his career. He has been referred to as the DaVinci of Intelligent Building Concepts and Intelligent Infrastructure (mission-critical networks) by many in his industry.
In the name of Scuola Filosofica Team, our readers, and myself, Mr James Carlini: thank you!
