DIJ social scientist Celia Spoden will give insights into her research project Cyber-physical spaces and avatar technologies: new opportunities for an inclusive society? at the upcoming conference of the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST) in Madrid. Celia’s paper “Visions and Realizations of Cyber-Physical Spaces in Japan: Solving societal issues by Cybernetic Avatars” is part of a panel on Aging technofutures: futuring old age in technological societies. It takes place on Thursday, July 7. In her paper, Celia discusses the technoscientific futures imagined by the Japanese government and compares them to the visions of researchers in the “Moonshot Research and Development Program” which was launched by the Japanese Council for Science, Technology, and Innovation in 2020.
