innovation as new ideas that are actually applied in ... a
peaceful, harmonious future"
"In an age where harmonious innovation is becoming more
celebrated, sustainable designs to preserve the Earth and
contribute to well-being are being implemented at a rapid rate."

"Today, we live in a dynamic and turbulent global community. The
wave of mega-trends, including rapid change in globalization and
technological advances, is creating new market forces. For any
organization to survive and prosper in such an environment,
innovation is imperative. However, innovation is no longer just
for creating value to benefit individuals, organizations, or
societies. The ultimate purpose of innovation should be much
more far reaching, helping create a smart future where people
can enjoy the best quality of life possible. Thus, innovation
must search for intelligent solutions to tackle major social
ills, seek more proactive approaches to predict the uncertain
future, and pursue strategies to remove barriers to the smart
future. This study explores the detailed requirements of a smart
future, including both hardware types and soft social/cultural
"To survive and improve the quality of life, continuous
innovation efforts have been imperative. All major revolutionary
waves of human history – agricultural, industrial, information,
and now convergence – are all about innovation for creating new
and better value."
"The purpose of innovation is much more profound than just
creating greater customer value, better competitive advantage of
firms, and an environment for better quality of life. The
ultimate goal of innovation should be the creation of a better
future. The “small i” for innovation is for an individual,
organization, society, or country. However, the “Large I” should
be innovation for creating a smart future.
The benefits of innovation may accrue to individuals, groups of
people, communities, industries, societies, nations, regions,
and the world. What is common to all these entities is that they
all pursue innovation for better preparation of the future
(Canton, 2015, Drucker, 1985). However, innovation should not be
for passively being future smart by preparing to meet the
uncertain future by being predictive, adaptive, and agile.
Instead, innovation should be for more aggressively active in
creating a smart future that provides more opportunities for a
better quality of life.
The term “smart” has been used widely nowadays, for example,
smartphones, smart cars, smart homes, smart infrastructure,
smart cities, smart countries, and the like. The term “smart”
represents the concept of hope and aspiration that depends on a
person's perspective. The smart state depends on the given
condition, environment, culture, and the person's value system.
Nevertheless, the general concept of a smart future should mean
a living environment which is much better than the current state
The smart future should be where innovation would help develop
intelligent solutions to complex problems to secure a humane
environment (Streitz, 2015). In such a smart future, people can
more freely pursue opportunities to learn and grow, be engaged
in good relationships, be happy with the community and work
place, and also have a comfortable and healthy life style with
adequate financial resources (Gallup-Healthways, 2015). Creating
such a smart future requires much more than just smart gadgets,
advanced technologies, convergence strategies, and government
support. It requires a fabric of soft innovations that can
nurture an aspirational future such as social justice, rule of
law, transparency, accountability, cohesive collective wisdom of
people, and shared visions and goals (Kramer and Pfitzer, 2016,
Porter and Kramer, 2011).
In this paper, we will explore the definition of a smart future,
requirements for creating an environment for the well-being of
people, application of fast advancing science and technologies,
and creative convergence strategies that support aspirational
innovation efforts, ideas that can disrupt the barriers to a
smart future, and the soft social requirements that are
fundamental for developing shared visions for a smart future.
This paper is organized as follows. In “Innovation for value
creation” section, we discuss the purpose, classification, and
organizational purpose of innovation. “Innovation life cycle”
section presents innovation life cycle from idea generation to
harvesting on the S-curve. The concept of a smart future is
articulated in “What is smart future?” section, while the
requirements for creating a smart future is presented in
“Requirements of a smart future” section. “Innovations that
disrupt barriers to the smart future” section discusses
innovations that can disrupt barriers to a smart future.
“Conclusion” section concludes the paper by proposing the soft
social requirements for s smart future."
