  4. 4. GDP distribution INSAFE 2012 - Page 4 - Afonso Ferreira –"The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
  5. 5. What was before: The Industrial Revolution• New technology (cotton mills) caused a financial markets bubble• A great deal of old-type jobs(agricultural ) were lost• Massive immigration – Italy lost almost half of its population – Ireland lost around 2/3 of its population (current population smaller than in 1870)• The start of a long-standing growth era (after several wars, including two world-wars) INSAFE 2012 - Page 5 - Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
  6. 6.

  8. 8. What’s now: The Digital Revolution (Log scale)• Late 80’s: • By the time of the first – Infant Internet Safer Internet Day: – Embryonic Web – Facebook hadn’t been launched yet – Inexistent GSM phones 8 - INSAFE 2012 - Page Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
  9. 9. And in 20 years from now• Hypothesis 1 – Microprocessors industry will deliver more of and more than Moore until 2030, as promised in their roadmap • Requirements – Energy – (Raw) Materials – Water• Corollary – Computing power will increase at least 1000-fold from today to 2030 INSAFE 2012 - Page 9 - Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"

  11. 11. DR enabling Science & TechnologyNormal Scientific Undertaking Science Actor Science Result Experiment INSAFE 2012 - Page 11 - Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
  12. 12. DR enabling Science & TechnologyIndustrial-Scale Science Science Actors Science Results INSAFE 2012 - Page 12 - Afonso Ferreira – Parallel and Accelerated Experiments "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
  13. 13. DR enabling Science & Technology• DR act on the experiments – Make them faster – Make them cheaper – Make them multiple-input/multiple-output• Hence, the Digital Revolution will transform the very process of scientific endeavour, not only by significantly speeding-up experiments, but also enabling parallel experiments, on one hand, and a multiplicity of Science Actors, on the other hand.• Some sorts of experiments are then commoditized and executed by non trained Scientists – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14986013• Eventually, the DR will enable non trained Scientists to test their own hypotheses• The scientific endeavour will then itself receive accelerated returns => Technological change becomes exponential INSAFE 2012 - Page 13 - Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"

  15. 15. DR impact• Claim: These and other technological developments will happen no matter what, bar hyper disaster. Better be prepared• Two Facts: Cyber-Physical convergence & Digital Natives• Needed: Early warning systems• Philosophical note: The day where 3D- printers will be able to print 3D-printers will be pivotal in the history of technology INSAFE 2012 - Page 15 - Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
  16. 16. Some other aspects of the Digital Revolution• Legal – The case of the runner Pistorius will have been an internship test in comparison • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAd5z-lq6pA• Economical – East-West (un)balance – Digital economy in full gear • New business models are required, adapted to a experience-based, Cyber economy, rather than to the old object-based, Industrial economy (as in the Games business) • Prosumers • Adapted regulation is required• Societal – Extensive re-engineering may be needed • Life extension, new notion of tooabled in opposition to disabled, new ethical systems, collapse of industrial models, and much more – Governance 3.0 • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2KmRb_ryhI&feature=BFa&list=PL34BCFE6 D55D881A1&lf=plpp – Increased participation but with liquid citizenship – New jobs/skills typology • Skills gap; unemployment; the disappearance of procedural white-collar jobs, but eventually also of the brain worker by lack of time due to the data deluge INSAFE 2012 - Page 16 - Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
  17. 17. Thoughts about Safety in the Cyber Realm• It’d be misleading and even counterproductive to pretend that we could regulate in anticipation of technology to come• Our exercise will be efficient if it manages to prepare the ground for the establishment of mechanisms allowing for future regulation to become quickly reactive• Use of education and of incentive mechanisms are powerful• Korea is a broadband society – We cannot seriously look at our future as a broadband society without talking to them• Games business is a path-opener• Some trends present a larger certainty to materialise in future than others (eg microprocessors industry roadmap). How to make use of this?• It is difficult to have people project themselves far into the future. Several visions expressed during Foresight 2030 in 2009 are to happen in… 2012! INSAFE 2012 - Page 17 - Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
  18. 18. Policy matters• Industrial era measures are ineffective – Digital era measures must be devised• Adapted and adaptive legal systems – Should promote forward-looking, scenario-based development of legal systems• Adapted and reactive safety frameworks• Society re-engineering – Societal fabrics should transform themselves, slowly but noticeably, to shape envisioned desired scenarios• Systemic approach• Technology watch to detect unexpected areas of large impact INSAFE 2012 - Page 18 - Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
  19. 19. Thoughts on regulation• No boundaries global market • Focus on standards and seems to imply that rules interoperability should be user-centred • Fundamental rights could be• Continuum between physical extended to the Digital Era and cyber worlds also points (eg, Children Safety, to regulation that does not Security, Data Protection) specialises in one world or • Too tight regulation stifles another, but rather on usage innovation at large • Scientists recommend• Focus should not be on bottom-up, organic, and technology. Should be intrinsic regulation as more impact-oriented robust• User-centred guidelines INSAFE 2012 - Page 19 - Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
  20. 20. Conclusion• The future – Bright or – Bwrong• What’s your perspective? Let’s talk! INSAFE 2012 - Page 20 - Afonso Ferreira – "The views expressed in this presentation are the sole responsibility of the speaker and in no way represent the view of the European Commission and its services"
