The plan of measures on implementing the program “Digital Economy of the Russian Federation” in the direction “Formation of research competencies and technological reserves” provides in 2018 elaboration of methodological approaches to development and implementation of strategies for digital transformation of enterprises. The world practice has accumulated an interesting, diverse experience of digital transformation, but Russia’s leadership potential in the world digital competition can be formed solely by developing independent, breakthrough approaches that will allow Russian industry not only to adopt successful experience of foreign partners, but also to put forward its competitive solutions and digital transformation tools. The proposed methodology for studying adaptability of Russia’s high-tech complex to realities of the digital economy can make a worthy contribution to forming competencies in the digital transformation of high-tech enterprises. The authors hope for an active and constructive dialogue with a wide range of experts in the interests of development and further improvement of this approach.
Building digital economy (DE) is a complex task. On this path, a number of directions require qualitative study, the absence of which (in any direction) can nullify all the positive results achieved in solving other issues, such as regulatory controls, staffing, organization and management, technological groundwork, etc. The author dwells only on one of such aspects — building the DE infrastructure.
The article is devoted to understanding socio-anthropological risks associated with the technological developments of modern civilization. In the conditions of new industrial revolution Industry 4.0, the digital economy, implementation of convergent technologies, immersive networked virtual worlds of the Internet question about the prospects of development of human and society is particularly acute. The authors note the possibility of social evolution through two paths: through the implementation of a global mega-project which is able to consolidate humanity, or through the development of a network of civil society institutions and creative reserves. The article highlights the problems and dangers of the Technological Singularity, when machines, endowed with intelligence, can create a situation that threatens the very existence of mankind. The only way to overcome the Technological Singularity the authors see in the quantum-network form of human intelligence superior artificial intelligence, in finding the quantum-synergistic access to the collective mind of the noosphere.
Digital economy has become a key trend in building a modern information society, including e-governments, knowledge management, FinTech, industrialization 4.0, clusters, ecosystems, and the like. It offers new fundamental changes in all disciplines and industries. Today the chaotic creation of separate fragmentary software products of the Internet of Things is growing uncontrollably and avalanche-like. Such software products depending on the performer’s tastes or on the customer’s requirements are written in various ways, with various development tools, with various DBMS, GIS, CAD/CAM and other common software. Traditional cybernetics has outlived itself and is dying. At the conceptual level the IT leaders are exhausted. The article proposes a new paradigm and a network GGG-architecture for implementing the instrumental infrastructure of a collective balanced digital economy.
