Designing the next digital revolution. At the crossroads of science, technology and art

-
Elisabeth-Herz-Kremenak-Saal
Plenary / Panel
english language

While the internet of things is in the midst of deploying an algorithmic approach to organizing industry, work and society 4.0, avant-gardists from a variety of disciplines have started to design a sustainable and meaningful human vision of digital modernity. The panel will discuss how values and the principles of the commons serve as a basis for renewing both the eco-social market economy and European integration and why digitisation will be the driving force for this change.
