ABSTRACT

Today an active attempts of understanding the anthropological and social dimensions of modern technoscience are made. The most important way of technoscience is the NBICS convergence. In the article special attention is paid to the understanding of technoscience as anthroposocial project, including the public in a number of factors that can affect decision-making in the field of innovation management. However, this effect is recursive and requires an understanding of the possible consequences and risks of technoscience development for the society. For example, instability and deformation of modern form and content of social subjectivity cause concerns. These trends can be traced, for example, in a unified digital environment of global projects such as industry 4.0. Are formed not only areas of social activity in new "converging" habitat. Life strategies based on simplification of perception of the world to manage their own biography in a complex technosocial massively observed. The General meaning of these strategies is to form instrumental skills of social activity as a response to the rash of techno-socio-cultural environment. Natural process of the formation and maintenance of values and norms of the matrices of culture is broken. For example, the establishment of digital (not just virtual, augmented, and hybrid) reality requires skill of the "operator", "user", without which existence in this reality is simply impossible. The instrumental value becomes more relevant to the society than terminal values. So tradition and innovation clash in the sociocultural environment. Therefore awareness of the unprecedented opportunities and potential risks of the emergence of technoscience, cyber-physical reality, digital economy requires urgent measures for the development of the institute of socio-humanitarian expertise of technologies, taking into account its results in the forecast and project activities.
