Global Wisdom lifts human potential from 2.5% (Industrial Economy) to 23.5% (Network Society) … and ultimately 57.5%

network_society_9x_contribution

It is often asserted that humans use 1% of their brains and don't reach their potential. Sergey Brin believes that we are only using 1% of the potential of the internet. Similarly, our "Industrial economy" society structure yields only 2.5% of human potential which is a fraction of human potential. A Network Society structure lifts human potential to 23.5% (with the current 3bn people connected) or 57.5% of human potential (if all 7.1bn people were connected to the internet). A 'Network Society' structure can yield 9-21 times more human potential than an 'Industrial Economy' structure.

Global Wisdom platform creates Network Society and

Global Wisdom is the platform that delivers a global network society. Global Wisdom consists of as few as 30 networks that can be achieve a Network Society in 2-5 years and also provide the collective governance, wisdom and effort to solve some of the worlds greatest challenges.

A common standard just like the combine harvester or containerisation

In the Agricultural Age, the combine harvester represents an evolution of innovation that increases productivity 600 fold. In the Industrial Age. containerisation and standardisation of rail gauges represent cascading innovation that dramatically increased productivity. In a Network Society, Wisdom Books also represent a common method (or standard) or person to person organisation that has a dramatic effect on personal and community productivity.

Wisdom Networks to reveal knowledge and focus the wisdom and effort of crowds. Knowledge, wisdom, participation and contribution is captured through interoperable networks. A Network Society is in which Wisdom Networks empower everyone by connecting them, their devices and “Internet of Everything” (IoE) things to reveal knowledge and focus the inherent wisdom in the community on outcomes in commerce, health, and economic development and all other aspects of society. The innovation is enabling person to person wisdom (knowledge plus action) virtually across every human endeavour which replaces the physical method to accumulating Productive Knowledge for organisations, industries and countries. Interoperable wisdom networks offer real-time transparency, accountabilty, governance, accessibility, knowledge and wisdom for organisations, industries and all other aspects of society.

Industrial Economy limited to 2.5% of human potential

Our Industrial Economy can never achieve more than 2.5% of global human potential. It is limited because our model for organising in the developed economies are hierarchies and institutions within which workers are 28% productive. Contribution beyond the organisation (from the crowd) is not possible as information systems are designed for use within organisations. As a result, developed countries, organisations and industries yield only 18% of potential with potential lost to process and failing capture contribution from the broader community. A 10.4% of global human potential is lost by failing to utilise the resource pool of 2bn users in the developing world that are connected to the internet.

Wisdom Networks lift personal productivity and capture the wisdom of crowds

We created Wisdom Networks to reveal knowledge and focus the wisdom and effort of crowds. Knowledge, wisdom, participation and contribution is captured through interoperable networks. A Network Society is in which Wisdom Networks empower everyone by connecting them, their devices and “Internet of Everything” (IoE) things to reveal knowledge and focus the inherent wisdom in the community on outcomes in commerce, health, and economic development and all other aspects of society. The innovation is enabling person to person wisdom (knowledge plus action) virtually across every human endeavour which replaces the physical method to accumulating Productive Knowledge for organisations, industries and countries. Interoperable wisdom networks offer real-time transparency, accountability, governance, accessibility, knowledge and wisdom for organisations, industries and all other aspects of society.

Network Society lifts human potential to 23.5% or 57.5%

A Global Network Society would yield 23.5% (3bn users) to 57.5% (7.1bn users) of global human potential (or 9-21 times current performance). The increase represent 3 times the output from developed economies and the balance by enabling contribution from those connected in the developing world. If all 7bn people were connected to the internet, then the Global community could operate at 57.5% of potential. The global wisdom of crowds could be unleashed to crowd create productivity, prosperity and solve some of the world’s greatest challenges.

Realising potential

People work together within Global Wisdom to realise human potential. External incentives to encourage participation and contribution are likely to be significantly less than an industrial economy. The utility offered by the network may drive participation and contribution with each small individual activity creating collective wisdom for everyone, everywhere. The people just need the networks and their devices to realise human potential.
