Gia Summary

Systems will be service oriented. Intelligent systems were designed to assist and extend people in the workplace, not replace them. People and agents working together will make it cost effective for hometown factories to make elegant, long lasting, state of the art products, for pilots to fly planes faster and more safely and for cars to navigate through traffic more quickly using less fuel. People and agents together will more frequently align with higher value Purpose and better meet responsibilities at work and at home.

There will also be a second type of intelligent system, different from R2D21 and people, both of which share a simple exoskeleton design2 in which the brain travels with the body around a center of gravity. The new type of system will support multiple agent minds in a body, and span multiple Instrument device types linked by communications to form a virtual body. This type of system will be called a metacomputer.
