Abstract: The paper is continuing our prior general analysis on the role of artificial intelligence (AI) and human intelligence (HI) in the context of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) exponential development as driving factor of the Information society (IS) progress toward Knowledge Based Society (KBS). Here some detailed aspects of the implementation and optimization of the emergent CI proliferation and use are approached, considering that the optimization of these processes at Earth scale has a huge importance and must aim the preservation and improvement of humankind life and evolution as main criteria. The complex processes of the AI-HI and the ICT support are not independent, but they are working in a mutual dependence, which reveals and explain their exponential evolution and proliferation in IS/KBS, so the identification of the mentioned leveraging mechanisms are very difficult but, on the other hand, any progress in this direction is desired for optimizing and then efficiently using them in all activity fields at Earth scale. The analysis shows that the efficiency of AI-HI applications is strongly depending on the human expertise/education and responsibility, when properly designing or using AI in CSOURS/CSENS and generally extracting information/knowledge from data all over the World, aiming the humankind stable progress in every activity field and ... beyond. A special attention and analysis was given to improving the quality of human contribution for CI and generally to the optimization of the complicate processes where AI and HI are implied, from design to the implementation. This way, we have to face every day, from designing to implementing or using AI/ICT, the fundamental question whose wisdom to trust? (WWTT?), recalling the prominence of HI and human wisdom (HW), because definitely behind any AI/ICT product/service is HI and HW! As a conclusion, we consider that (WWTT?) is not necessary a question to be answered, but an alarm signal to prevent the consequences of not carefully choosing our decisions or analysing our options for designing and implementing AI-HI projects, but generally any project in the ICT/IS/KBS fast changing and complex context. We consider that WWTT? could be really understood and perhaps properly followed, as an alarm signal inside and outside AI-HI, for a sustainable development of ICT/IS/KBS and humankind life on Earth.
