Paul Horn, IBM Science & Engineering Business & Management Social & Cognitive Sciences Economics & Markets Business Innovation Technology Innovation Social Innovation Demand Innovation Service Science, Management, and Engineering (SSME): A Next Frontier in Education, Employment, Innovation, and Economic Growth, Jim Spohrer

5 Costa Rica Chapter How +Join existing/creating Special Interest Groups (SIGs) inside SRII: Health Care, Tourism, University / Education, IT Services Delivery, Media, Modernization +Countrys Signature Chapter SIG: Environment- based Services –Country Brandy opportunity around Biodiversity & Services

6 Why Environment-based Services Leader in several Environmental Services Several established leading services/research groups Highly recognized country brand Some bio-informatics services will be needed Neutral terrain for IT Costa Rican industry Coalescing several currently separated spaces: IT value-added services, environmental services, tourism

7 Environment-based Services (examples) Environmental Services –Water quantity, quality –Protection of sources –Carbon fixation –Species inventory –Biodiversity Preservation Services Design and Development of Sustainability Strategies –Green Intelligence Bioinformatics-based Services –Green Business Intelligence –Systems Biology, Executable Biology related services Natural Capitalism – Valuing the ecosystem services –Natural resources productivity: Complete-System –Closed-cycle production models –Comprehensive solution/services business models ©

8 Example: Complementing Biomimicry existing research BioServices Mimicry Hypothesis: mutualism/symbiosis of different species, as opposed as individuals or collectives of a single species, for inspiring innovative Services concepts facilitated by the new technologies

9 BioServices Mimicry Services from the biological stand point : Understanding complex ecosystems, looking for holistic approaches to solve major problems, specially involving different species / verticals Services as the emergent behavior of sophisticated complex systems Cecropias (Guarumo) Service Partners: Exclusive: Azteca ants No exclusive: bees, birds, howler monkeys, …

10 Gartners Jul 2009 Tech Maturity Information Services

11 Example: Information and Services Structure, Describe, Find, Integrate, Share, Store, and Govern Information By 2015, the increased maturity and adoption of semantic information modeling techniques (such as ontologies) will enable two-thirds of the information management-related tasks currently performed by IT to be automated and executed by business roles Gartner (Oct 09) The [Services Science Semantics] approach could be used along three points in this spectrum: –semantic descriptions of standard Web services with the help of WSDL-S, semantic policies, and agreements; –semantic descriptions of lightweight Web services using Web 2.0 technologies (…); –and ontology-based profiling of people and organizational aspects of the assets associated with the knowledge services Systems Biology Markup Language SBML Systems Biology Graph Notation SBGN Business Architecture Semantics A.
