7 C 4 There is an important connection between this theme and "The Augmented Age" theme, namely with regards to multi-language unification.

8 C 4 The foundation should consult more on the community before doing some of the developments. i.e. ideas should come from community (IRC) community
9 C 4 machine learning: statistical method does not solve everything. what you get is a false positive rate and a false negative rate, although by a lot of training they could be reduced to a tiny rate (IRC) machine learning
