About the Event

Good or bad, or both? Digitalization is a good example of our world full of contradictions. Information technology has the potential to help solve a variety of crises, such as climate change. At the same time, it is also part of the problem by exacerbating or even contributing to existing crises.

And it itself has its own negative effects, changing us and the world. Or how it raises the question of the nature of humanity with developments in artificial intelligence.

Digital humanism sees itself as a response to this situation, to the many faces of digital technologies. Hannes Werthner, one of the initiators of the Digital Humanism Initiative, sees how computer science and information technology are changing the world and us, and will give a talk on digitalization, artificial intelligence, and digital humanism.

The language of the event is German. Visit the official website of the event for further information and registration.
