The world, albeit crookedly and obliquely, in roundabout ways, but still follows the path of development, progress, including in the sphere of productive forces. What will the advancement of science and technology bring forward, what opportunities will industrialization provide on a new technological foundation with the use of advanced digital technologies? It is obvious that there will be a transition to a higher level of automation, a radical change in the control system of all technological processes.

This will be nothing more than a new, higher technological order. As is known, as human civilization develops, successive periods can be distinguished that differ qualitatively from each other in such basic features as, for example, the method of generating, transmitting and directly using energy in the course of social production. And also the role of a person in this process, first of all, by what proportion of efforts a person personally invests in the total volume of what is produced, and what proportion — means that are not related to a person, whether natural or artificially created.

Features of the production process

Any production process can be decomposed into two beginnings. For direct, mechanical execution — this component is present when it comes to material production. And on the control, information, intellectual component. This division applies both to the inanimate means of production and to the human worker. There are, relatively speaking, "hands", and there is a "brain". And also, of course, sensory organs and movers that allow you to change your location if necessary.

And all this is constantly being updated, refined, improved — both based on real experience, from scientific and industrial practice, and through a theoretical combination of the contents of existing "cells" using the apparatus of logic and mathematics.

Of course, various norms, restrictions, and standards should also be uploaded there. The needs and needs of customers — both current and prospective, on various planning horizons - will be constantly brought to the intelligent cloud in a directive format. And the cloud will calculate and implement all this, eventually bringing specific commands in real time to each individual producing machine, to each electromechanical robot.

It should be emphasized that when creating such a system, it is necessary to implement thinking processes, and not to emulate (imitate) the human brain as such. Unfortunately, the capabilities of this biological organ are severely limited. After all, it is necessary to select not only qualitative research, but also to analyze billions of relationships in different studies – in the field of the same regenerative biomedical technologies. We humans will definitely not be able to do this, we have already come close to the limit of knowledge, to the limit of our capabilities. And an intelligent cloud can!
