MWS Web Forum Series ‘The Digital Transformation’

September 23, 2021 – November 4, 2021

Organization: Harald Kümmerle, Franz Waldenberger

Video recordings of the individual sessions are available on the DIJ YouTube channel

The digital transformation (DT) encompasses the digitalization, connectivity, and virtualization of many aspects of our social, political, economic, and cultural life. The way we communicate and organize, access and consume information or design and conduct business have dramatically changed over the last two decades. But DT does not stop here. The resulting abundance of data and the fast development of ICT tools to aggregate, process and analyze these data including self- or deep-learning algorithms further widens and deepens its impact. Data driven knowledge creation offers both opportunities and risks. To exploit the former and control the latter requires new modes of governance. Our Web Forum Series discussed the implications of DT from an international and multi-disciplinary perspective. It put DT in historical context, analyzed the likely consequences for knowledge production and governance, and compared respective national strategies.

This lecture series is part of our research focus Digital Transformation – Discourses, Strategies and Processes.
