With exponentially accelerating scientific and technological progress, quantum technologies are gaining new impetus and promise the solution of numerous tasks that previously were not amenable to solution within the framework of “traditional” computing models. The consequences of the second quantum revolution will affect all spheres of life. Such branches as material science, nanotechnology, pharmacology, simulation of chaotic dynamic processes, etc. will gain new development. At the same time, quantum technologies carry certain risks and threats, in particular, the scrapping of all systems based on modern achievements in cryptography. The article gives a brief description of the current state of quantum technologies and the forecast of their development in terms of impact on various aspects of human civilization.

Dynamics of general transition to digital technologies in recent years is the evidence of radical restructuring in the system of world leadership factors. In order to be at the forefront of digitalization, it is necessary to make a wager for creation of domestic solutions. The problems and prospects of the Russian microelectronic industry, as well as its role in transition to the digital economy — these issues were discussed in the interview to the “ES” magazine by Director General of the Research Institute of Microelectronic Equipment “Progress” (JSC “NIIMA Progress”) Vasiliy V. Shpak.
Imagine that any part of Moscow or of any metropolis of the planet could be reached in less than 30 minutes. Miracles? But precisely this is the transport of the future, says a group of brave engineers led by Alexander Atamanov. Developers create only drones with a carrying capacity from 90 kg, which, according to designers’ plans, will compete on the market with other ultralight class aircraft, although the project was created as a non-profit. Such an idea could not but interest me, that’s why I decided to visit the Skolkovo Innovation Center, where designers work. The meeting was held on January 19 thanks to Andrey Solovyov, commercial director of Hoversurf, who introduced me to the team members. I talked to the chief designer Denis Sintgareyev and the 3D equipment engineer Alexander Avetisyan, as well as with the company founder Alexander Atamanov. I was received very cordially and, it seems to me, they frankly answered all the questions.
The article deals with the following questions: what is common for analytics and expertise, how they differ and how they are related to each other; what are the characteristics of the information society. Analysis of the purposes, sense and content of the analysis and expertise processes in the target vector of managing organizations, projects in the context of technical and social revolutions of the modern era of changes is carried out. The model, structuring the basic processes of analytics and expertise, is constructed, the criteria of their coherence and delineation are indicated. Constructive definitions of analytics and expertise are given. A taxonomic map of the basic processes of expertise and analytics in the organization is built. Proposed solutions provide the necessary basis for developing methodological and regulatory materials for practical application of analytics and expertise.
Recently research on the issues of civilizations, their history, their present, dialogue and the future has been intensified. One of the brightest scientists working in this direction is undoubtedly Academician of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, Doctor of Economics, Chairman of the Civilizational Studies Department of the International Academy of Global Studies (IAGS), Professor Yuri V. Yakovets. What is the scientific novelty of his works?
Russia’s chairmanship in the Eurasian Economic Union in 2018 allows us to formulate and bring to a wide discussion a set of initiatives aimed at strengthening the integration association and completing the lost links of the integration agenda. As the practice of EAEU functioning in conditions of external constraints and the lack of clearly articulated joint development priorities has shown, the Union needs to specify the goals and to reinforce pragmatic aspirations of the member states with serious research and practical work to update the joint cultural, historical and spiritual heritage of the peoples of Eurasia. In other words, it is necessary to give a new impetus to the Eurasian Union, which should become a competitive economic union of states that have a common picture of the world, a single system of conceptions and values. The network of scientific and educational institutions of the EAEU member states has become one of these bases cementing the common economic whole, which, if properly organized, can turn into a self-sufficient profitable industry, whose product (modern knowledge) can be successfully exported to third countries, increasing the prestige and capitalization of the union, as well as strengthening Russia’s foreign policy positions. To this end, it is necessary right now to take active steps towards growing clusters of science and education on the basis of exchanging best experience and practices between the profile institutions of the Union’s countries, to raise the bar of qualification requirements for all participants in the Eurasian scientific and educational exchange. The article proposes the approach outlines for the all-round stimulation of cooperation in this sphere with the aim of both self-sufficient provision of integration processes with modern personnel and for the outside supply.
“Cultural policy in the state” is a concept broader than the “cultural policy of the state”. All social groups without exception, large and small, privileged and discriminated, form their own cultural policy; each of us pursues his small personal cultural policy. This policy can be more or less conscious, more or less effective, but in any case it follows the rules of the so-called non-classical rationality, long ago and well studied.
