Junior Alpbach – Science and Technology for Young People
Wisdom of the crowd – collective intelligence in cyberspace
How can we guarantee that data can still be opened in 200 years time? How do we decide what is valuable enough to be stored for such long periods of time? The goal is to make them aware of future challenges (information overload, limited storage capacity, preservation of knowledge as cultural heritage, etc.).
Participants: Junior Alpbach is primarily intended for children of participants of the Technology Forum aged 13 to 17 years. For the special program “Junior Alpbach” only children of participants of the Technology Forum may be registered or children that have special invitations from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education and Women’s Affairs.
Please note: limited number of participants, registration necessary!
