in: 10 the future of the Knowledge Society

In this paper Unisys shares some important insights regarding what technology can, and perhaps should, achieve in a knowledge society. While the current focus on the eEurope 2005 Action Plan has brought information technology policy to the forefront of everyone's minds, we hope that our perspective at Unisys will contribute some new ideas to the ongoing debate over the role of IT in modern society.more....

in: 21 the future of Robotics

In this paper we present our work on developing a shared repertoire of action categories through imitation. A population of robotic agents invents and shares a repertoire of action categories by engaging in imitative interactions. We present an experimental set-up which enables us to investigate what properties agents should have in order to achieve this. Among these properties are: being able to determine the other’s actions from visual observation and doing incremental unsupervised categorisation of actions.more....

in: 02 the future of Global Economy

How come the so-called 'international community' so often, in spite of their lead agent's (IMF) failings in the handling of two major economic crises of the 1990s, still make the mistake to believe that the Washington Consensus has universal following? Could the answer not be that this Washington Consensus is in itself a culture, with its own culturally derived "unstated assumptions"? more....

in: 08 the future of Food & Biotech

Research breakthroughs and technological developments in life sciences raise important ethical and social considerations, in particular in connection with agriculture and food related issues. Ethical and social considerations have influenced legislative/decision making processes and the public understanding of new scientific and technological developments, e.g. in the case of genetic engineering applied to the agro-food sector.more....

The European Common Indicators is a monitoring initiative focused on sustainability at the local level. A partnership of different organisations and levels are working together, in a joint effort to find comparable data and a better understanding of sustainability in local communities across Europe. Ten common local sustainability indicators were identified through a bottom-up process - these are now being tested. Used in combination with other indicators and other evaluation methods, the European Common Indicators can contribute to a comprehensive local or regional monitoring strategy.

As Europe heads decisively towards a competitive knowledge-based economy, scientific research is growing as one of the ultimate pillars of our viability as a sustainable society. Modern life sciences have brought about immense expectations for improving health, agriculture and the environment, and have opened new avenues for key industrial sectors such as energy production, chemical engineering and the development of new materials. Yet these advances need to develop in parallel with an adequate level of social acceptance which should make scientific and technical progress compatible with the diversity of cultural expectations and value systems that we enjoy on our continent.more....
