From dull to intelligent World
Dr. Azamat Sh. Abdoullaev
Vision, Innovation and Technology shape the World to come
We are slowly realizing that many life-critical things are at critical points when radical political decisions must be
made and crucial economic actions must be performed. We are slowly recognizing that many significant things are
never will be the same. We slowly understand that there is no close end for the current global crisis without
creatively disruptive changes.
The worldwide crisis might continue concurrently with the regional wars and sweeping social unrest, ultimately
ending up with two alternatives:
I. the Ubiquitous Global Chaos and Military World State (if taking a gloomy view of the world)
II. the New Intelligent World, a Smart World of Intelligence, Innovation, Integration and Prosperity (if
taking a sunny view of the world)
THE WORLD’S STATE OF AFFAIRS
We all see that the world at large is lacking any good sense, intelligence and efficiency, being led by intolerably
stupid politics and poor commercial ideology. As such, it is abundant of global imbalances, social disorder and
exclusion, political disintegration and environmental neglect, injustice, dishonesties and corruption and many other
social evils and immoralities. As a result, the present world is abundant of dangerous situations and threats and risks,
affecting individuals and persons, families and businesses, groups and communities, cities and regions, nations and
countries, societies and international communities.
To make things ever worse, that wildly chaotic and highly volatile world is plagued by the poor global government,
corrupted national leadership and incompetent local administration.
Nowadays, that disordered, uncontrolled world is living through a crucial stage, when decisive changes are
impending, when the whole planet is looking for a radical transformation in all the key spheres, sectors, parts and
systems, which is no longer be kept and managed in the standard ways. The scope of global crisis, its threats and
risks, is becoming overwhelming running from the global and local stock markets to safety and security to the
school systems and family values, to the whole countries and international communities. Going across all aspects of
human being, it continually infects all parts of human life, all kinds of economic schemes and political systems, all
types of communities, all sectors of human activities. The signs of such a broadly unsustainable world are all around
us, their markings as sweeping and multifarious as:
1. Economic Crisis (mass unemployment, recession, depression, bubbles, boom/bust patterns, economic
globalization, world poverty)
2. Financial Crisis (the state budget crises, banking crisis, currency crisis, liquidity crises, mass insolvency,
3. Societal Crisis (social disunity, social unrest, low safety and security, social disorder)
4. Political Crisis (political disunity, political misgovernment, regional wars, political corruption)
5. Cultural Crisis (cultural disunity, commercial culture expansion and human isolation, religious wars and
6. Ecological Crisis (wholesale ecosystems destruction, environmental disasters)
7. Information Crisis (information propaganda, digital divide, mass advertising)
8. S&T Crisis (knowledge fragmentation, disunity of science, arts and technology, education, research and
innovation fragmentation, R&D neglect)
9. Ideological Crises (the crisis of basic values, the standard mindsets, mass consumerism, moral corruption)
10. Personal Crisis (personal situations, jobs, household finances, alcoholism and drugs addiction)
The key demand of any healthy crisis is the need for change, which is the only constant thing in the world. For the
planetary crisis, it is a comprehensive radical change of worldwide scale and scope.

It’s now clear that the dominant economic scheme is doomed to extinction, and should be replaced by a self-
sustaining dynamic world, which is smarter and more sustainable, that is, intelligent, innovative, healthy, secure,
liveable, efficient, moral, fair, open, ecological, and interconnected.
The current scheme of production and distribution and consumption causes poverty, inequality, speculation,
corruption, and ecological destruction, thus systematically resulting in the world crises and political collapse, social
chaos and civil revolt. Accordingly, its fiscal extension, financial capitalism, breeds market speculation and
economic corruption, thus resulting in financial crises and economic collapse, inequality and poverty.
The former world’s leading economy, the USA, generated the ever worst financial crisis, accompanied with the
international wars and extreme regional and worldwide poverty, while its Fortune corporations not legally paying
any income tax.
Again, the rising world’s largest economy, the European Union, is already on the verge of collapse and
disintegration, to be succeeded with the transnational community breakdown and political demise, so affecting all
the international and regional unions of nations. There could follow the complete collapse of the unsustainable world
of the financial capitalism, where the puny minority, 1%, rules the overwhelming majority. It’s plain that the current
world is failing to sustain the human life causing degradation of all sorts and kinds: mental, social, political, cultural,
and environmental. The existing world: "meets the needs of the present … compromising the ability of future
generations to meet their own needs."
We need all to recognize the current world as an Unsustainable World, the Inferior World liable to social threats and
political risks, technological threats and ecological risks, economic risks and military threats, cultural risks and
This world is deeply indebted, being at the brink of sever and prolonged depression. Global debt has increased by
$57 trillion since 2007, outpacing world GDP growth, last year coming to an unprecedented figure of $ 199 trillion,
where governments and corporations make most contributions. Led by Japan (517% GDP), Spain (401% GDP), and
the USA (269% GDP), governments in advanced economies have been borrowing heavily to fund bailouts in the
crisis and offset falling domestic demand in the recession, while corporate and household debt continues to grow
rapidly. Debt remains an essential tool for the global economy, funding needed investments in infrastructure,
business expansion, and urbanization. High debt levels, whether in the public or private sector, have historically
placed a drag on growth and raised the risk of financial crises that spark deep economic recessions. (Debt and (Not
Much) Deleveraging, McKinsey Global Institute, 2015).
The rich is richer, the poor is poorer, it is a permanent destructive “rule” of the current world system: the total
population has reached seven billion, while only 15% makes ends meet. The climate is warming. Ubiquitous
pollution, of air, water, food, soil,… and our souls. Bio species are being systematically eliminated. Mass
pandemics. Civil wars. Global and local terrorism, in the most peaceful places of the world. And all is accompanied,
or caused, by the most ineffective global governance and corrupted political leadership and outdated regional and
local administration operations.
Thanks to a good human reason, crisis has two key meanings: “an unstable situation of extreme danger and
difficulty”, or “a crucial stage and turning point in the course of things”. In other words, the world is in a transitional
critical stage either to go for a resource-efficient, inclusive and smarter world prioritizing knowledge, innovation and
innovative technologies, when many former ideas, strategies, policies and practices must be revised or just rejected,
or to suffer a “permanent loss in wealth and potential for future growth” (Communication from the Commission,
Europe 2020, a Strategy for Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive Growth).
Since we rather well know how to create the unintelligent dumb world, let’s see how to shape its opposite, the
intelligent smart world.
HOW TO CREATE an INTELLIGENT WORLD
Nowadays, the global strategy, initiatives, and actions for new world are coming not from international political
structures and organizations, like G 20 or UN, but rather from smart businesses, modelling the Future World as a
Smarter Planet (IBM), Smart + Connected Communities (Cisco), or as a Smart World (SEC “X” Consortium). The
IBM’s Smarter Planet is projected as the world with digitally smarter cities, buildings, infrastructure, government,
intelligence, education, healthcare, public safety, telecom, banking, retail, stimulus, work, traffic, transport,
computing, products, food, energy, oil, water.
In turn, the Cisco's Intelligent Urbanization, a.k.a. Smart + Connected Communities, aims to convert physical
communities into connected (intelligent) communities, targeting at such significant areas of human life as: Smart
Connected Buildings, Smart Grid, Smart Connected Real Estate, Safety and Security, Connected Transportation,
Environment, Education, Healthcare, Sports and Entertainment, and Government.

The Smart World’s holistic global strategy is integrating the future world scenarios, like the Smarter World or the
World’s Intelligent Urbanization, in the single I-World Development Framework, as specified in the Smart World
The optimistic scenario, building the Smart World, as a Future World of Intelligent Communities, calls for
integrative development models, initiatives, principles, strategies, standards, solutions, and innovative converging
technologies (http://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/CIT2011/index.php?p=Keynotes). And it requires merging all the key
domains, physical, natural, digital and knowledge worlds, assets, and resources, to develop more sustainable and
liveable world with intelligent eco-communities and integrated infrastructures, such as the Internet of Things/Web of
Entities, or globally distributed RES Networks, as replacing centralized fossil fuel infrastructures.
The IBM’s Smarter Planet, Cisco’s Intelligent Urbanization, or Smart + Connected Communities, Huawei’s Smart
City, Microsoft’s 2.0 World, are successive contributions into structuring the urbanized world, its key sectors and
regions, by using intelligent development strategies and strategic computing technologies. The mentioned two big IT
companies have been promoting two big ideas, for the same global audience: the Smarter World and the Smart +
Connected Communities. The latter is focusing on five applications, transportation, energy and utilities, real estate,
safety and security, and citizen services (education, government, healthcare, sport and entertainment), to achieve the
network-based sustainable communities. The former one is now about 3i World, instrumented, interconnected and
intelligent, covering whatever we like to have as more efficient, sustainable, or intelligent, from Analytics to Work,
now including Smarter City as well.
A viable way to real sustainability is the integrated holistic approach of the Smart Sustainable World X.0, merging
the IBM’s Smarter Planet & Cisco’s Smart+Connected Communities, as well the UN’s Agenda 21, the EU’ Charter
on Sustainable Cities and Towns, and the Smart Europe Strategy 2020.
Connecting the Natural, Social and Digital Worlds (as the Virtual World of information resources on the WWW),
the World X.0 makes the largest heterogeneous natural-economic-social-technological system (see the Smart
World keynote). In such an integrated conception of the urbanized world, a hierarchy of smart communities is
emerging as socio-territorial entities, guided by full sustainability and innovation in research, knowledge and
technology, public policy, organization, business, finance, and governance.
The X.0 World is defined by intelligent digital infrastructures, emerging as a smart global community of full
sustainability (Environmental or Ecological, Political, Social, Cultural, Economic, Technological Informational,
Regulatory or Legal), at all levels, local, urban, national, international, continental, and global.
THE SMART WORLD DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP
The Smart World strategy is becoming a roadmap and guidelines for global ICT industry, like it has been recently
highlighted by the Europe’s Electrical Engineering and Electronics Industry, see the Electra II Report, the Smart
World: http://www.orgalime.org/positions/electrical.asp. It re-examines the challenges that Europe faces in 2012 and
ahead, presenting proposals to support European policies in its Smart Growth Strategy EU 2020, outlining the steps
that need to be taken to make Europe a “smart world”. As the key measures there considered Smart Society, Smart
Infrastructures for Smart Living, Smart Cities, Smart Mobility, Smart Financing, Smart Industry, Smart
Skills and Education, Smart Life, Smart People, Smart Grids, Smart Buildings, Smart Lighting, Smart Safety
and Security, Smart Health, and Smart SMEs.
Schematically, the X.0 World as the Future World as the Sustainable World of Smart Communities could be
organized as a complex hierarchy of intelligent communities, innovative technologies, knowledge industries and
smart infrastructures, as below:
WORLD 0.0 (Ancient World/Natural/Agricultural) :: Global Community 0.1 > Local Community 0.1 >
Nation 0.1 > City 0.1 > Science 0.1 > Technology 0.1 > Industry 0.1 > Infrastructure 0.1 > Network 0.0 >
Telecom 0.0 > Internet 0.0 > Web 0.0 > Service 0.1 > Government 0.1 > Medicine 0.1 >…Human 0.1
WORLD 1.0 (Industrial World/Unintelligent/Dumb) :: Global Community 0.0 > Society 1.0> Nation 1.0 >
City 1.0 > Science 1.0 > Technology 1.0 > Industry 1.0 > Infrastructure 1.0 > Network 1.0 > Telecom 1.0 >
Internet 1.0 > Web 1.0 > Service 1.0 > Government 1.0 > Medicine 1.0 >…Human 1.0
WORLD 2.0 (Information World) :: Global Community 2.0 > Society 2.0 > Nation 2.0> City 2.0 > Science

WORLD 3.0: EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES WORLD AND WHO IS TO RULE IT
Technology is said the greatest factor of change in the modern world. Its breakthroughs and disruptive innovations
promise solutions to most global challenges of our age, while improving lives, transforming industries and
protecting our planet.
The World Economic Forum’s Meta-Council on Emerging Technologies relying on the collective wisdom of the
Forum’s communities identifies the most important technological trends as consisting of:
1. Zero-emission “fuel cell” vehicles running on hydrogen
2. Next-generation robotics benefiting from the cloud-computing revolution
3. Recyclable thermoset plastics cutting landfill waste to advance a circular economy and cleaner world
4. Precise genetic engineering techniques to advance agricultural sustainability and greener world
5. Additive manufacturing making things, from printable organs and circuit boards to intelligent clothes using a
digital template to advance a digitally smart world
6. Emergent artificial intelligence learning automatically while interacting with the changing environment to become
super-intelligent machines to advance an intelligent world
7. Distributed manufacturing replacing the material supply chain with digital information to advance a smart world
8. ‘Sense and avoid’ drones, unmanned aerial vehicles, able to sense and respond to their local environment to
advance a smart world
9. Neuromorphic technology simulating the brain’s architecture, its many neuronal connections, to deliver a critical
increase in a computer’s thinking and responding power to advance a smart digital world of intelligent small-scale
machines, intelligent cameras and smartphones, or smart data-crunching machines for financial markets or climate
10. Digital genome delivering your genetic code on a USB stick for more personalized and effective healthcare to
advance an intelligent and healthy world.
Regardless regional wars and social conflicts, we all witness an emerging digital world of supercomputing as
combining natural language processing with Big Data systems in the cloud accessible from anywhere; massively
online services, games, courses, politics, etc.; consumer-driven native original content; no-touch interfaces; and the
web of things or internet of everything, where anything becoming a computable entity.
The power of innovation and emerging technologies is so enormous that the tech giants have pursuing their plan for
global domination by building the “next big thing”, “smart killer application”, IBM, Watson, the super-intelligent
computer system, Google, autonomous cars at its secret Google X lab, Microsoft, the cloud operating system with
Azure, Apple, smarter personal communicating devices, or Cisco, Smart + Connected Communities.
And most prospects stay with the IBM, “Corporate America’s Secret Weapon”, promoting a technological ideology
of the Smarter Planet, a precursor of the Intelligent World.
The Smart World Evolution Roadmap is life critical for the future world scenarios, for it holistically combines
technological breakthroughs with political, economic, social and organizational innovations.
It shows how to avoid the negative scenario of the Ubiquitous Global Chaos and Military World State for the Smart
Sustainable World of Intelligence, Innovation, Integration and Prosperity.
