Thinking Ahead - Essays on Big Data, Digital Revolution, and by Dirk Helbing

By Dirk Helbing

The quickly progressing electronic revolution is now touching the principles of the governance of societal constructions. people are at the verge of evolving from shoppers to prosumers, and previous, entrenched theories – specifically sociological and monetary ones – are falling prey to those speedy advancements. the unique assumptions on which they're dependent are being wondered. every year we produce as a lot facts as within the whole human background - will we almost certainly create a world crystal ball to foretell our destiny and to optimally govern our international? will we desire wide-scale surveillance to appreciate and deal with the more and more complicated platforms we're developing, or might bottom-up techniques comparable to self-regulating structures be a greater technique to making a extra cutting edge, extra profitable, extra resilient, and eventually happier society? operating on the interface of complexity concept, quantitative sociology and massive Data-driven probability and information administration, the writer advocates the institution of recent participatory platforms in our electronic society to augment coordination, decrease clash and, exceptionally, lessen the “tragedies of the commons,” due to the tools now utilized in political, fiscal and administration decision-making.

The author

Physicist Dirk Helbing is Professor of Computational Social technological know-how on the division of Humanities, Social and Political Sciences and an associate of the pc technology division at ETH Zurich, in addition to co-founder of ETH’s threat middle. he's across the world identified for the clinical coordination of the FuturICT Initiative which makes a speciality of utilizing shrewdpermanent facts to appreciate techno-socio-economic platforms.

“Prof. Helbing has produced an insightful and critical set of essays at the ways that huge facts and complexity technology are altering our figuring out of ourselves and our society, and most likely permitting us to regulate our societies far better than we're presently in a position to do. Of exact observe are the essays that contact at the can provide of massive info besides the dangers...this is fabric that we should always all familiarize yourself with!” Alex Pentland, MIT, writer of Social Physics: How solid principles unfold - the teachings From a brand new Science

"Dirk Helbing has verified his acceptance as one of many top medical thinkers at the dramatic affects of the electronic revolution on our society and economic climate. considering forward is a so much stimulating and provocative set of essays which merits a large audience.” Paul Ormerod, economist, and writer of Butterfly Economics and Why so much issues Fail.

"It is changing into more and more transparent that a lot of our associations and social constructions are in a foul method and urgently want solving. monetary crises, overseas conflicts, civil wars and terrorism, state of no activity on weather swap, difficulties of poverty, widening monetary inequality, healthiness epidemics, pollutants and threats to electronic privateness and identification are only many of the significant demanding situations that we confront within the twenty-first century. those matters call for new and ambitious pondering, and that's what Dirk Helbing bargains during this selection of essays. If even a fragment of those rules repay, the implications for worldwide governance might be major. So it is a must-read booklet for someone considering the future." Philip Ball, technological know-how author and writer of serious Mass
