Abstract :

In a number of research studies, we have dealt with a number of attributes which are of paramount importance to improve the quality of life for any well-organized society. The main target in this set of studies is to both focus and underline the importance of the knowledge in the state of the art. It is crucial to realize that nowadays broad topics such as Robotic, Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, Nano science, Nanotechnology and Biotechnology are the basis for any development to be achieved in the short, medium and long term. We do recognize the importance of these broad and essential areas of knowledge and development, but it must be admitted that as a country, we have not done the work properly and in due time. The offset with reference to developed countries is most significant. It is rather straightforward to conclude that our efforts in these areas are not enough to overcome these difficulties. Chile is sad example of a country, where highly qualify professionals are, in number, either scarce or non-existing. We believe that we must develop and increase economical resources on a regular basis, so as attributes such proactivity, novel ideas, entrepreneurship and social business among others are indeed to be considered seriously. Chile has considerable resources, such as Cupper, Lithium and Rare Earths and a dessert with clean skies and sun light (so this is without any doubt a rather unlimited supply of solar energy). Only scarce efforts have been dedicated to obtaining benefit of these free sources. There are also, a number of other traditional resources such as a significant and large forest, wine and other commodities. A better analysis of both our strength and weak points should be taken into account and people should be seduced to work for the country welfare. It is obvious the role to be played by a high-level training in subjects such as Chemistry and Biology in addition to Mathematics, Physics, Computing, will be essential to have available a reasonable number of competent professional working for the productive sector.
