An intelligent approach offers more possibilities to users when information is processed from four dimensions instead of two (chapter 3, no 12).

During the industrial era, a title was spontaneously attributed at the time of processing information. During the post-industrial era, the title will mainly be contextualized in relation to the entire body of information processing from which it is derived.

During the industrial era, objects were rarely described. During the post-industrial era, an object must refer to (or point to) the micro-world into which it has been inserted, thus allowing a finer contextualization, research and faster translation.

During the industrial era, databases were developed around a subject; if the job was well done, there was traceability. During the post-industrial era, there will be transversability, that is to say a sideways contextualization from comparisons between several parallel databases.

During the industrial era, information was gathered and disseminated in real time: it reflects what is happening today. This creates a constraint or obstacle in that it offers us only the here and now. During the post-industrial era, we will process information over time, situating it in the past and the present to better predict the future while also taking into account Long Data.
