Being physical in a digital world – Presented by Gijs Huisman, Digital Society School

It may be a slightly uncomfortable realization but an increasing portion of our time is spent living in the digital realm. We connect with others through Facebook or Instagram, we get work done by sifting through e-mails or having meetings on Skype and Slack, and once we get home we may relax with any number of digital games.

Despite these developments we are still flesh-and blood creatures. We are physical beings in a digital world. When our physical and digital worlds merge new challenges and opportunities arise. I will draw on theories of embodied cognition to present a view on technology that augments reality by means other than visual feedback. I will question the role that such technologies may play in the way that we connect to each other and to our broader (social) environment.

Intimate Computing is Computing with Vulnerability – Presented by Birna van Riemsdijk, TU Delft

Intimate Computing is Computing with Vulnerability – Presented by Birna van Riemsdijk, TU Delft, at the Internet of People Event, which will take place on 23 November 2018, at Studio HvA Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Intimate technology such as quantified self, mobile location sharing apps, social media, high-tech clothing, and behaviour support technology such as smart homes become more and more pervasive in our daily lives. These digital technologies have many (potential) benefits, for example for improving our health, efficiency, safety, and human connection.

However, we are also concerned about how these technologies affect us as human beings, in particular when combined with the power of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science.

I posit that our concerns about intimate technologies can be understood as vulnerability arising from their intimate nature, and put forward a vision of intimate computing as computing with vulnerability: intimate technologies should take into account human vulnerabilities, allowing humans to reflect on and actively shape their vulnerable existence in interaction with these technologies.

In this way, we create a digital society in which technology partners with us rather than controls us. Continue reading “Intimate Computing is Computing with Vulnerability – Presented by Birna van Riemsdijk, TU Delft”

About Digital Society School
We believe that our digital society can be inclusive, intelligent and engaging
Why wait until the tech that shapes our future is a given? Instead, let’s work on ideas to successfully integrate digital technology in our lives and society today. At Digital Society School we invite you to direct your interests, knowledge and effort towards building a digital society. Because we believe that it can -and should- be inclusive, intelligent, and involve us all.Change is paradoxical, in that we continuously strive for it while being afraid of it at the same time. Transformation takes this one step further. It touches the core of what everything has been like up to the point of transformation. It requires creativity and courage: the courage to pursue grand, abstract goals and the creativity to solve, by 2030, the challenges the world now faces.To this end, we have founded the Digital Society School. Through the school, we seek to research the impact of technology on society, develop the skills necessary to guide the transformation and pass on this knowledge and these skills to a new generation of professionals. They are ready to begin work on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. They will be the architects of transformation, across the world as well as in your organisation.
