11: Digital life in a physical world: rethinking digitization

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Increasingly, all areas of our lives are pervaded by digital technologies, services and products. Aiming for human-machine synergies, digital technologies are blended with our physical bodies and surroundings. What are the real demands on us as a species, both from a contextual as well as a human viewpoint beyond contemporary technological hypes? What are the needs not yet known and how can they be unveiled? What radical new possibilities originate from or facilitate this new ‘digitality’? A comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach is needed to envision, design and develop futures that recognize and embrace human diversity.
