Global societal knowledge infrastructures and communication platforms have made life and business more efficient and effective. However, many serious side effects have emerged alongside these ICT platforms, imperiling the foundation of future not only in a particular country, but also across borders.
So far, there has been no dedicated academic discipline or any society that aims to solve these problems through systematic research on a global scale. Therefore AIS (Association for Information Systems) Council agreed to adopt the vision of ICT-enabled Bright Society as an AIS Grand Vision Project (in short Bright ICT Initiative) in December 2014, and established a task force. The Initiative will encompass the development of relevant technologies, business models, public policies, social norms, international agreements, metrics of measuring national progress, and so forth. It is expected that this endeavor will create many research opportunities to make AIS research outcomes more available to and significant for society.
