Decision Support Framework 2050

When contemplating the kinds of high-impact DECISION SUPPORT tools for national or international organization we consider

(1) the need for a sophisticated data discovery and decision support tool; and

(2) agencies/stakeholders can create positive change in the world. 

 

The concepts below explore and IDEAL DECISION SUPPORT FRAMEWORK for the most ambitious problems.  In 30 years (by 2050) what might such a system comprise? And for what global challenges?

 

Framing the Solution Space:

  • YELLOW = STAKEHOLDERS
  • ORANGE = AVATARS & AGENTS -
  • BLUE = DATA MODELS
  • HOT PINK = BUILDING BLOCKS
  • PURPLE = HUMAN INTERFACE & UX
  • LIGHT PINK = CHALLENGES, SOLUTION TARGETS
  • RED = PROGRAM APPROACH

 

 

STAKEHOLDERS

For our mental models, we consider stakeholders like the IMF; United Nations; Law Enforcement Agencies (e.g. human trafficking, money laundering); World Economic Forum (e.g. Fourth Industrial Revolution); Fortune 500 Companies, Lawmakers and Regulators etc..

The list above is not comprehensive - but an example of stakeholders leading organizations with a primary or secondary mandate (e.g. triple bottom line) to contribute to society; the ability to affect substantial change; and resources to invest in, or explore adoption of an ambitious solution.

 

 

 

 

 AVATARS, AGENTS, ASSISTANTS & PROXIES 

WIth Avatars, Assistants, Agents and Proxies - the common theme of these ‘others’ is Augmenting the humans. 

  • In some cases these "others" help humans summon and engage data to help with decisions.  In business, it imay be executives with data-on-demand, verbal command & control of business intelligence integrations and reduction of cognitive load - and extension of cognitive range. 
  • Avatars can enable better reasoning, recall, decision support, and connection making. Context aware information augmentation.  Instant context-aware data recall and visualization for decision support.  Collaboration catalyst.
  • In some case the sophisticated may even NETWORK, EXECUTE AGREEMENTS or EXCHANGE KNOWLEDGE at a dsitance.

  8. Spatial placement of ideas
  9. Personalized Optimized
