New Web Forum Series explores ‘Digital Transformation’

The new MWS Web Forum Series ‘The Digital Transformation’ (DT) will kick off on September 23 with three lectures on Knowledge Production in a Data Driven Society. The speakers Yoshiaki Fukami (Gakushuin University/Keio University), Itty Abraham (National University of Singapore), and Nadin Heé (Osaka University) will address the limits of big data and AI, knowledge as a commons in the digital age, and the boundaries between the public and private spheres. The event will be moderated by DIJ director Franz Waldenberger. The event series explores opportunities and risks resulting from the digitalization, connectivity, and virtualization of our social, political, economic, and cultural life. The speakers will discuss the implications of DT from an international and multi-disciplinary perspective. They will also analyze the likely consequences for knowledge production and governance, and compare different national strategies. The next events in this series are scheduled for September 30, October 14, 21, 28, and November 4. Details and registration here
