The initiative DIGHUM lectures started with regular online events to discuss the different aspects of Digital Humanism. The bidt and the TU Wien are cooperation partners for DIGHUM lecture series.
We are beginning to understand the consequences of geopolitics for the economy. We have a much fuzzier understanding of the consequences for political decision making. As policy makers look to understand how best to take decisions over complex problems, they are discovering that market-based solutions don’t work very well. Equally, falling back into Cold War patterns of emphasizing national security over economics is likely to have its own pitfalls. So how can we change government to allow it handle these complex problems better?
About the Series
A roughly bi-weekly seminar offers presentations and panels from worldwide thought leaders. It is typically held on Tuesday afternoons at 17:00 CET.

Digital Humanism deals with the complex relationship between man and machine. It acknowledges the potential of Informatics and IT. At the same time, it points to related apparent threats such as privacy violations, ethical concerns with AI, automation, and loss of jobs, and the ongoing monopolization on the Web.
For this reason, a new initiative — DIGHUM lectures — started with regular online events to discuss the different aspects of Digital Humanism.
We will have one or more speakers on a specific topic followed by a discussion, or panel discussions, depending on topic and speakers. The exact dates will be announced at least two weeks before.
