Homo Hominus©: Vitruvian and Dependable Cyber Society


Recently, Grand Challenges such as global water supply and global real time health monitoring are being addressed using state-of-the-art computer and communications technologies. These include such paradigms as: the Internet of Things (IoT), the Internet of Everything (IoE), fifth generation wireless networks (5G), robotics, artificial intelligence (AI) and alike. Following the definition of Christensen, they can individually be classified as disruptive innovation. However, this critical mass of innovations is collectively and synergistically impacting humanity and our behavior in an unprecedented fashion, and as such can be characterized as exponentially disruptive innovation. Homo Hominus© defined in this paper is a Homo Sapiens who possesses surviving and dominating intellectual skills adequate in the era of exponentially disruptive innovation. Both Homo Hominus and its abstract algebra model, defined as ReSeT©, are introduced, described, and characterized. The integration of spiritual “R”, societal “S”, and technological “T” domains which forms the ReSeT universe is compliant with the Dertouzos postulate of discarding an axiom made 300 years ago when scientists decided to separate technology and humanism. As a result, individuals coexisting with their digital avatars but equipped with the power of spirit and virtue are envisioned as modern Vitruvian humans forming dependable society against maladies, viruses and non-democratic ideologies. The dependability theory in this work is based on the extended PMC model originally defined by Preparata et al. Consequently, the presented approach can serve as an assessment metric for extensive scenarios of diverse dependable cyber societies. Furthermore, as implied by disruptive innovation, the presented approach paves unlimited opportunities for discoveries, studies, and implementation of novel ecosystems on a global scale seeking Grand Challenges solutions.

Professor Andrzej Rucinski represents a growing category of “global visionary professors” defining the role of academia in Grand Challenges, the global engineering era and developing global innovation, technology, and education solutions. He was educated both in Poland and the former Soviet Union and has conducted his academic career in both the United States (University of New Hampshire, USA), Europe (France, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, and United Kingdom), Africa (Ethiopia), and Asia (India, Kazakhstan).

His service has been with high tech industry, governments, NGOs, ranging from the state level (National Infrastructure Institute, serving as the Chief Scientist) to a global level (NATO, United Nations Organization global engineering education organizations). He has been a member of the Executive Committee (Innovation Chair) of the IEEE Computer Society’s Design Automation Technical Committee.  He chaired the leading conference in microelectronics education, the 2009 Conference on Microelectronics Systems Education (MSE’09) in San Francisco. At the University of New Hampshire, he is the founding Director of the Internet of Things Research and Development Laboratory, a former Critical Infrastructure Dependability Laboratory, the Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Space Science Center, and the IBM Professor. He was the Member of the US State Department/Fulbright National Screening Committee, a Visiting Professor at the Gdansk University of Technology, a Professor of the Indo-US Coalition of Engineering Education (IUCEE), an Ambassador of the International Society of Service Innovation Professionals (ISSIP), and he has been the Fulbright Senior Specialist. Member of ASEE, ACM, IEEE (Senior Member), IEEE-SA, IGIP, SEFI, and ACM Distinguished Speaker.

Charter Member of eCollaborative Ventures (eCV) a new business entity operating as a collaboratory. The eCV Collaboratory members work together to solve ecosystem Grand Challenges associated with eHealth/mHealth), eEducation/eLearning, eSecurity/Identity Protection, Smart City/Region/State and Information Infrastructure technologies involving a digital ecosystem using Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud-based Computing, Big Data and Analytics.
