According to the TASS news agency at the Technoprom forum, 2018, the President of the Russian Federation, V.V. Putin said: “Russia intends to create a network for internal communication between the scientific and business community.” This suggests that the government of the Russian Federation has realized the need to create a communicative environment between scientific, IT and business communities, for the effective development of scientific progress in the framework of international competition. But the creation of a local community will not be as optimal as those required for solving scientific problems here and now. …

We all know such a term as a brain drain, or intellectual emigration. Very often this term defines the resettlement of a large number of highly qualified specialists from less developed countries to countries with a more developed economy.

-What makes people leave their homeland?

There are a lot of reasons, we will highlight the most popular and widespread ones.
In the first place, as many could guess, there is a financial issue. …

Recently, we have seen such a picture as a large outflow of investment from the crypto industry. The market is falling, investors are afraid to invest in new projects. What is it?

The analysis of the market the ICO and the new blockchain startups, you notice that 70% of projects are either financial concepts associated with the transaction, or gaming platform, and therefore the blockchain-the market is full of financiers and geeks. Such a “dream team” (speculators and geeks) do not cause much interest from ordinary investors. Only 30% of projects implement really interesting things that can help attract new investments in the crypto industry, moreover — to benefit society. …

What can be more important than the human health? Modern technologies in every way strive to increase the life expectancy and preserve the health of each of us: probing with the help of nanotechnology, the development of medicines against diseases considered incurable (HIV, oncological diseases), laser surgery and much more. Modern medicine has a significant arsenal in the fight against the numerous ailments that are surrounding us.
However, the modern healthcare system is not only an arena of confrontation between medical personnel and death, but also an outdated bureaucratic mechanism. Potentially as a consumer of medical services, each of us has faced with the problems of obtaining various medical documents — educational institutions, government bodies, specific permits, etc. In the conditions of the information society and overcoming the digital divide, the existing system of document circulation in healthcare bodies can be qualitatively improved.
How? International Science Hub believes that the most vivid example can be “blockchaining” the patient’s medical history — at the moment when changing the medical institution each of us gets a new medical history stored in the archives of this institution. Given the mobility of the population (providing for a change of place of residence and place of providing medical services), each of us owns 5–6 documents of this kind. Optimization of “parallel” case histories leads to a significant reduction in costs, faster information retrieval not only between elements of the health care system (polyclinic-hospital-scientific-medical institute), but also simplification of obtaining various kinds of certificates, permits and licenses.
Because of the features of the distributed registry system, one user can not make adjustments to his own medical history, which implies absolute transparency of the patient before the treating medical institution. In turn, granting access to your own digital medical history for the hospitals is the citizen’s right. Interaction between the medical institution and the citizen begins from the moment of verification of the patient’s identity by a digital key.
However, the introduction of such into everyday life is a complex process from both an economic and legal point of view. …

One day, Michael Faraday was asked: “What is the practical use of electricity?”. The researcher replied: “I do not know, sir, but one day you will tax it.” This story has become a classic example of technology that is overtaking time. But, in the conditions of modern society, this is unlikely to become possible. The time for which the product goes from the “idea” stage to the stage of mass production has declined over the past few decades. Technological innovations are being introduced into our life at an unimaginable pace:
robotics, cloud computing, artificial intelligence technologies, and other technologies that are now driving the consumer electronics market; unmanned vehicles are being introduced, smart houses are being sold, robot assistants are being developed, etc. Science and business in developed countries are a symbiosis that manage multibillion-dollar investment which is flowed and estimated by hundreds thousands of research workers.
However, the interaction between science and business is sometimes hampered by several factors: institutional, geographic, socio-economic or even historical-cultural. Many bureaucratic procedures in the form of registrations of patents, grants, tenders can be seriously simplified with the help of a blockchain — International Science Hub suggests creating a social network with an economic platform for settlements between customers (businessmen) and executors (researchers). On this resource, we increase the effectiveness of interaction by speeding up the process of finding the right specialists for one side, and attracting sponsors for the other. In the role of the accounting unit, a thematic token that is called “Science Token” (ticker ST) is supposed.
The issue of interaction between businessmen and scientists depends on the scientific and technological progress of modern society. The more effective this symbiosis works, the stronger we can transform our world. …

The second half of the twentieth century was held under the banner of two important processes — the scientific and technological revolution and globalization. On the one hand, scientists from all over the world received a powerful impetus to the development of the world science, cooperating among themselves in the field of fundamental and applied research, as well as in conducting developmental research.

At the same time, considering the unequal opportunities of scientific communities of different countries, serious gaps in public and private financing, as well as geopolitical crises have led to the intellectual rupture on a global scale. This manifests itself in the form of a tangible problem — regardless of the location of the invention, intellectual property rights to it are either from researchers with solid funding, or from groups of researchers with serious political support, or from those who have money and connections. There are a lot of examples — industrial espionage at the state level in China, illegal use of foreign patents in techno-parks of the USA and Western Europe and more. The product of scientific activity (intellectual property) and not only is appropriated by people who have more resources than their competitors. …

At the dawn of the formation in the 1970s, the Internet was a small network that united several major scientific centers in the US, and later in Europe. This network was created to accelerate the exchange of scientific information and to facilitate access to knowledge.

Later, in the 1990s, with the advent of hundreds, then millions and billions of new computers, the original purpose of the Internet blurred. Knowledge sharing was lost in social networking tapes. Assessment and fair payment of achievements are mired in the wilds of the Internet marketing and all new government regulations.

In 2009, Bitcoin appeared in the world — the first cryptocurrency, which gave a push to popularization and ubiquitous implementation of the technology blockchain. This new invention is already transforming the world of currency and changing the traditional financial system. Without dependencies on government structures, cryptocurrencies can become the payment for our world. …
