01: Digital futures: design as key to future digital worlds

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

The digital technologies of the future present new opportunities and challenges. We are facing critical questions of design – how do we solve problems with and for digital technologies? Engineering alone cannot answer these questions; we also need creative/scientific/artistic approaches. What will these approaches look like? What are the digital worlds of the future? What meaning can we already discern from the ongoing intensive merging of physical and digital worlds and the transgressive behaviours that appear to be connected to this?
