ICT Mutation: Towards More Sustainable Future
It might need paradigm shift in the idea of an intelligent society emerging in digital transition. However, transitions are always gruelling uphill battle against the status quo, pushing people beyond their comfort zone. Therefore, it might be conceived as a quest for joint visions on paths towards sustainability to cope with transitions are in touch with reactions for transforming life, business and society.
As a definition of sustainability, Wikipedia says “In more general terms, sustainability is the endurance of systems and processes”. However, if we would take as a reference to nature in terms of sustainability, we could figure out that there are both beginnings and endings which are in a constant cycle of change that always finds a way to adapt. As Pablo Picasso said, “Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.”
Ways of living more sustainably using science to develop new technologies, we need to shape the ICT towards a more human brain-like autonomous systems consist of the abilities to learn from experience, adapt to new situations, and use knowledge to handle human environment. You can count for having a clue scrolling as software-defined things, like CD10K highlights the main perspectives are unlimited scalability, immortal system, and zero downtime by the agency of self-healing which all sounds more like sustainability!
Autonomous (cognitive) technologies will surely become more prevalent in the future. On the axis in question of digital transformation to expand the impact of cognitive technologies, we should embrace boldly the transformation that would find compelling uses for these technologies by evaluating opportunities to pilot them. With these initiatives, you figure out the intelligence would act as a glue of integration at every possible point is discovering the degrees of interoperability.
Since our minds have altered dramatically year after year, ICT is mutating, which means of the process of being altered or metamorphosis, into the human thinking centric cognitive functions by self-reinforcing mechanisms that we know as life. César Hidalgo, writer of “Why Information Grows: The Evolution of Order, from Atoms to Economies” book, indicates that our society is also a collective computer, which is augmented by the products we produce to compute new forms of information.
I’d like to emphasize that if we would have to rapidly update and develop ourselves, the systems we create would also align us and increasingly transforming to the human-like thinking system. It is obvious that we are evolving much more into intelligence beings as well as connecting each other simultaneously with intelligence advancement.
As Stephen Hawking says “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change”, we have to discover the sustainability is that way enabling algorithms to improve the quality of automated transition here by default, deeper insight into the fields of strategic planning and social innovation.
