Abstract

The paper analyzes the way information and communications technologies (ICT) faces the actual challenges for their development, starting from the fact that science and technology power is generally recognized as the main factor of human kind progress in the last centuries, but ICT have a huge role in refining the dynamic legacy knowledge -the support of developing information society (IS) toward knowledge based society (KBS). ICT premises to enable “the technology power to do more good than bad” in the IS/KBS, exceeding the ICT field and lending a power instrument of analysis and management for actual most complex decision processes on Earth, are also analyzed, as not few literature discussed the two edge force of science and technology. On the other hand, the paper analyzes the actual context where ICT must bring new approaches/innovations, answering to the major challenge of pushing the performance limits and then expanding them to all other scientific and technological fields, especially in this crucial phase of apogee/decline they are facing because of soon reaching physical limits of conventional semiconductor technologies and Earth resources fading. The paper main conclusion, after presenting some actual technological examples and premises, is that using the million years nature’s research in living things is perhaps the best way to identify some ideas for the long expected revolutionary optimal technologies humankind and Earth need.
