Enhanced Knowledge Based Human Organization and Social Change

Kathleen M. Carley, Carnegie Mellon University

Changes that bring together nanotechnology, information science, biology, and cognition have the potential to revolutionize the way we work and organize society. A large number of outcomes are possible. At the same time, existing social forms, legislation and culture will limit and direct the potential outcomes. In a very real sense, technologies and societies, tools and cultures, capabilities and legislation will co-evolve. Without attempting to predict the future, a series of possible outcomes, issues, and research challenges are discussed. Particular emphasis is placed on issues of security and potentially radical change within groups, organizations, and society.
