FuturlCT is a FET Flagship project using collective, participatory research, integrated across the fields of ICT, the social sciences and complexity science, to design socio-‐inspired technology and develop a science of global, socially interactive systems. The project will bring together, on a global level, Big Data, new modelling techniques and new forms of interaction, leading to a new understanding of society and its co-‐ evolution with technology. It will place Europe at the forefront of a major scientific drive to understand, explore and manage our complex, connected world in a more sustainable and resilient manner.
In this open access special issue of EPJST, you’ll find a fascinating set of contributions from European scientists who set out a 10 year research agenda within their fields: what are the really tough problems? There are also visionary position papers outlining the kind of socio-technical infrastructure that FuturICT will investigate, and a foregrounding of the ethical dimensions that human Big Data and Analytics always raise. • Foreword • Introduction: The FuturICT knowledge accelerator towards a more resilient and sustainable future • FuturICT: Participatory computing to understand and manage our complex world in a more sustainable and resilient way • Accelerating scientific discovery by formulating grand scientific challenges • A planetary nervous system for social mining and collective awareness • Towards a living earth simulator • Towards a global participatory platform: Democratising open data, complexity science and collective intelligence • FuturICT – The road towards ethical ICT • Theoretical and technological building blocks for an innovation accelerator • The FuturICT education accelerator • Challenges in complex systems science • Challenges in network science: Applications to infrastructures, climate, social systems and economics • A complex systems approach to constructing better models for managing financial markets and the economy • Manifesto of computational social science • Exploratory of society • An economic and financial exploratory • Socio-inspired ICT: Towards a socially grounded society-ICT symbiosis • Complexity aided design: The FuturICT technological innovation paradigm • Causality discovery technology • Smart cities of the future • Data and models for exploring sustainability of human well-being in global environmental change • The emerging energy web • Towards integrative risk management and more resilient societies • Linking science and arts: Intimate science, shared spaces and living experiments • Big science and big administration: Confronting the governance, financial and legal challenges of FuturICT
