How best to use a huge amount of knowledge to create a better world

A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE
The good news is that there is more 'knowledge' now than at any time in history. The bad news is that the existence of knowledge does not mean that the knowledge will be used wisely, or that it will be used at all.
Every day that passes there is more new knowledge ... and the amount of new knowledge every day is more and more every day!
What this means is that no individual can ever hope to get a complete grasp of all the knowledge, or even much of the available knowledge.
Another way of thinking about this is that every individual can find a lot of knowledge about something of interest ... but few will have the chance to understand how what they know fits into the bigger context of all the information.
This probably means that more and more expertise will reside in sector silos, and big multi-sector problems will never be solved.
