THE PEOPLES’ FInES TOOLKIT: CSG/M Hello, everyone: I am delighted to be here today! My name: John Sutcliffe-Braithwaite, My agenda:• Introduction to CSG/M (fuller exposition in the White Paper) – It can be seen as a ubiquitous FI Societal experimental methodology• THE BIG QUESTION: What is Future Internet in the Real World? – It is the socio-technology layer for complex society: we are key players• A NEW RESEARCH PARADIGM: – The need for a new federation of research to effect strategic change – A new theory & science of societal complexity – A programme of Action Research/NPD to deliver CSG/M to the world• My Aim: TO SHARE OUR WORK WIDELY. White Paper available: “EU Complexity Research-an integrated approach-THE PEOPLES TOOLKIT”
a proposal for federation between Future Internet Science/FInES & CAPS to design, deliver, and deploy an affordance called THE PEOPLES’ TOOLKIT whose rationale is:Science of complex systems + SocioTechnology + Emergence + ecologies + People: IS ‘SMART SOCIETY’ DYNAMICS VALUES ARE THE NEW GAME IN TOWN The science: Computational Socio-Geonomics ENGINEER METALOGER Meta-model processor Introduce WWW Computed social systems Apply S-GAIA Toolset for Mankind Outcome MODEL-WORLD Joined up society & systems Exploitation Institutions Handle global dynamics Vision SMART SOCIETY Sustainable world ecologyThe dynamics of society are the result of Abstract values perturbing the CAS called Society.‘SMART SOCIETY is the continuous Living Lab of life, an in-vivo expression of the complexgame of life using the entire range of tools that we can devise to generate a better world

THE PEOPLES’ TOOLKIT: CSG/M - the societal layer for FI We all ‘do complexity’, a kind-of Darwinian model But what is it fundamentally? - The evolving CAS of society We all ‘do systems’, multi-level, Meta-models CSG/M takes systems thinking to new limits – computable society We all do ‘SOCIETY’ - the greatest ERM System Computing in-vivo human purpose, will & wilfulness We will all be part of COMPUTABLE SOCIETY’ FI-CSG/M Engineers are socio-technical Meta-modellers Society’s complex systems available to all are the new social media Metaloger tapestries retain in perpetuity the aetiology of all ‘life’ SOCIONOME enactments index its dynamic DB We each weave our own tapestry: life uniquely computed together.
THE METALOGER PARADIGM SHIFT To the great sweep of change that is simplistically categorised as a technology-push and market-pull, can be added people-power somewhat contentiously. There is a wide concern at blind technology leading the world towards the brink , and one of the answers is to give people the means to voice concerns in a way that makes them effective; there is an even wider issue, one of purpose and involvement generally in the march of progress. The interest in more effective democratic processes is widely pursued - from the western model, to that of China, from the model of involvement on the factory floor in Volvo or Japan, to the delivery of low technology to the Third World. We envisage a different way of re-capturing the organic wholeness of earlier societies: JSB Thesis 2000, metamorphosed into S-GAIA People Power Schumpeter basic research paradigm change exploitation Schmookler (CAS2;s) IDEAS information & cognition management models practical applications PEOPLE behaviour/social sciences management practice ventures/sponsors/stakeholders TECHNOLOGY systems theory Metaloger/virtual reality specific productsgm-shift vers 1
CSG/M: FI: GPS: the federation for Computable Society• The argument: ‘FI’ is a fundamental phenomenon that requires a fundamental solution –as yet undefined: – it comprises intertwined Society/Complexity/ICT: we have not defined what this means. Society & complexity is obvious at the everyday level – but its scientific basis & how it is computed is a new quest• FI choreographs solutions in this complex world: – CSG/M is a toolkit to support this; it’s hypothesis is that Meta- Modelling is how we work as humans; it is the basis of human complexity & involves all of Society: us, everyone, everywhere• The toolkit is a generic ICT overlay on all existing systems; over the FI; it is: an evolutionary set of complex ecologies; in-vivo: processing ‘life’; it’s basis is novel systems-science – It will introduce & build a new computational paradigm of human purpose i.e. Intertwined ‘Society/complexity/Meta-modelling’. Governance, Policy, Standards the core of Democracy: People do CSG/M from the bottom-up, Computable Society

Rich Picture THE SOCIAL-GROUP (CAS)2 PARADIGM virtual networks need virtual leadership for modern flexible organisations in which anyone can take the lead according to the priority of activities and the nature of each member (or specialists) contribution, cf. Belbins roles. Shakleton exhibited the activity is purposeful, to build group inspirational leadership described by Goleman/Boyatzis/McKee, ref E20 "Primal meaning and identity. Professor Leadership", and enabled each person to exert their maximum contribution to success - Winston suggests language is the survival - of the group equivalence of grooming for human groups to establish cohesion. Groups which lose this cohesion fall apart, belonging however rationalised as due to chaos participation external circumstances; the way tothe group is about change communication destroy individuals and groups is toexistence, surviving, intention patterns motivation isolate them.managing its world leadership ambiguities concern(and moving on).

Engineering the Socio-technology of complex Society The paradigm of Computable Society will involve huge ubiquitous societal involvementMultiple Societal ecologies is a global scale effort; global GPS has a pivotal role in this major societal change programme CSG/M will counter fragmented, fraudulent & criminal approaches to complexity in the real worldThe EU is likely to lead CSG/M – eventually and it represents a major opportunity to support world sustainability There are >1000 societal EU initiatives; FuturICT is a leader. There is a globalcrisis; BAU is not an option. CSG/M is the right toolkit to support an integrated approach to FUTURE INTERNET & Complexity in the Real World.
