.... Rob van Kranenburg presented his reflections on political systems as pragmatic cybernetics. He argued that if data lakes are not owned by systems, where people contribute, using all possible opportunities, and by taxes, these systems will end within the next five years. Whoever exploits these opportunities will have the upper hand in the digitally connected world. Opportunities are tuned to the ability to spot emerging new entities early. The ability to do this is determined by three factors: having data lakes at your disposal; balancing the ratio of power, determining its scale; and merging opponents in an ecosystem.
