Data Democracy-How do we work together for today & tomorrow? (Part I)
Deep Learning & Deep Thinking & Actions with Perseverance
--unlearning all thoughts inspired by FUKUSHIMA 2011.3.11 to go beyond for the future!,
--overcoming difficulties during big disasters and afterwards,
--being brave enough before difficulties,
--making decisions based on available data and proper insights
--facilitating and empowering individuals/teams/organizations.

Articulation of FUKUSHIMA Issues for the future of our society :

-What happened? 

     Joint Fact Finding / Descriptive Analytics

        # Recording/Archiving

-Why did it happen?

    Diagnostic Analytics

      # Classification/Differentiation 

-What is happening?

    # In situ Observation and On-line Monitoring

     # Adaptive Reasoning and Crisis Management

-What will happen?

    # Assuming Holistic View on Systems of Innovation

     # Predictive Analytics, Prescriptive Analytics towards Better Decisions 

Being navigated by reliable data

(1) scientific rationality  based on "data",

(2) engineering rationality as derived by interactions of people based on "data" ,

(3) co-design of a community by coordinating  facts, values, functions, performances, conflicts and trade-offs,

(4) story toward global well-being based on individual care.

(5)Collective knowledge is the key before unforeseen,  uncertain, contingent, complex, unknown and complicated dynamic issues with conflicts, contradictions and other difficulties.

<Story on Positioning>

General discussions on design are categorized taking into accounts of big changes in these centuries as

 - From Technology to Science-from steam engine to thermodynamics after "Industry 1.0 ( Industrial Revolution) " 
 - From Science to Technology-from physics to nuclear reactors after " Industry 2.0 ( mass production paradigm as symbolized by T-Ford) "  inspired by E=mc
 - From Technology to Society-from Shinkansen to public transportation system  after "Industry 3.0 ( total quality control & process control by predefined logics  so called automation )"  
 - From Society to Technology-from social issues and conflicts into holistic well-balanced design solutions ---to be re-defined as "Industry 4.0, Industry 5.0, ... " evolving now in cyber-space as well as real space with full of human dimensions.  Marketing 4.0, big data, data-centric, humanity-centric... are cross-sectional articulations and /or expressions on what are emerging in this decade. 


Let's share a set of data on facts and talk freely to produce a culture as used to do so.  We have not yet reached the in situ dynamics of a theater although more and more players and audiences are joining In the digitally networked context "cloud".
-----from  Edo Ukiyoe Collection. 


Welcome to join the open discussions any time.  The questions is how do we architect the mechanism for collecting data, information, knowledge, and wisdom of people for coming up with the best collective understanding, and into actions, prohibit actions and inactions .   In order to get perspectives on data democracy, three subjects are selected tentatively .   They are materials design as my life work, nuclear issues and landscape design as extensions of data-driven design developed in materials research, having been prepared as one of bottom-up actions to realize "Data Democracy" in this century .  

What governance processes and enabling conditions are needed to ensure that policymaking is scientifically credible? Commitments by all referring scientific data are more democratic than technocratic?
Is there a societal preference for policy processes?
