Strategies for a Humanistic Digital Future
Third Workshop on Digital Humanism
Date and time: 19 and 20 Nov. 2020 at 4:00 p.m. CET.
The Digital Humanism initiative has been launched more than a year ago with the Vienna Workshop on Digital Humanism in April 2019. What started as a first gathering of academics from different disciplines, such as political science, law, sociology, history, anthropology, philosophy, economics, and informatics, has developed into an established international community spanning academia, civil society, public organizations and industry. Milestones in the process were the publication of the Vienna Manifesto on Digital Humanism, an online workshop in light of the COVID crisis and an ongoing lecture series with renowned international speakers.
We understand Digital Humanism as an approach that analyzes and influences the complex interplay of technology and humankind, for a better society and life, fully respecting universal human rights. We do not only want to analyze and discuss, but also act and participate in the future development to encourage human-centered innovation. Thus, this third workshop elaborates on possible strategies for selected fields such as AI in Europe, education, and resilient sustainable systems.
