Aims, contents and method of the course

After successful completion of the course, students are able to analyse and reflect on the current developments in Informatics, and, hopefully, have both committment and ideas to influence the future development.

Thus, students will work on and get a better understanding of digital humanism, which we define as a concept that describes, analyzes, and, most importantly, influences the complex interplay of technology and humankind, for a better society and life, fully respecting universal human rights (see also the Vienna Manifesto on Digital Humanism and info about the related workshop in April 2019: www.informatics.tuwien.ac.at/dighum).

The course consists of two parts:
(a) Internationally renowned experts will give presentation on the topic (3-4 colleagues)

(b) Students in groups (size 3 – 5) will work on specific subconcepts and / or dimensions of digital humanism. In interactive session they will present their intermediate and final results.

The LV starts with two “classical” lectures, then students work on their projects. There will be two intermediate presentations of the group works, and a final one day seminar.
