Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to analyse and reflect on the current developments in Informatics, and, hopefully, have both committment and ideas to influence the future development.

Thus, students will work on and get a better understanding of digital humanism, which we define as a concept that describes, analyzes, and, most importantly, influences the complex interplay of technology and humankind, for a better society and life, fully respecting universal human rights.

Subject of course

Preliminary discussion (Vorbesprechung) and first Session:  5.10.2022, 17:15 - 18:45 (mandatory!)

The course consists of two parts:

a)     Lectures on selected topics of Digital Humanism

b)     Students in groups (size 3 – 5) will work on specific subconcepts and / or dimensions of digital humanism. In interactive session they will present their intermediate and final results. The topics for the presentations will be assigned in October.

The LV starts with “classical” lectures, then students work on their projects. There will be intermediate presentations of the group works.

In parallel, there will be public presentations of internationally renowned academics (see https://dighum.ec.tuwien.ac.at/dighum-lectures/).
