Original post: TEDxBonn, 2020

How will technological transformation create a better tomorrow? What role can Digital Humanities play in this?

In recent years, digitalization has become ubiquitous in all areas of life and the economy. Thanks to information technology, machines, products and people are connected more and more. Is this leading to a smart green world in which everyone benefits from technological progress while the environment is preserved?

Or are we heading into a digital growth economy in which money and power are concentrated among few and humanity passes beyond the planetary boundaries even more quickly?

The event will be recorded at the headquarter of Deutsche Telekom in Bonn, where international experts from science, technology, society and the arts will examine the opportunities for making digitalization more human and sustainable in the future.

Speakers include CIFAR AI and Society workshop participant, ​Prof. Dr. Dirk Messner, President of the German Environment Agency (UBA).
