Conference "Challenges of a digital world"

The conference Challenges of a digital world will take place at the Sala de Gruas of the Faculty of Letter of UdG on Thursday, October 19 (see program). We want to provoke a reflexion on the challenges of the digital era, which are enormous: the irruption of information technologies, social networks and the Internet system have changed the world so rapidly! The impression that technology is one of the main factors of social disruption is so strong! Reflecting on all the challenging aspects of the digital era is more urgent than ever.

Ulises Cortés (Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the UPC / Barcelona Supercomputing Center), Gerald Bronner (Professor of Sociology at the University of Paris and member of the National Academy of Medicine, the Academy of Technologies and the Institut Universitaire de France), Simona Levi (Founder of Xnet and Director of Technopolitics and Law in the Digital Age at the University of Barcelona) and Jordi Vallverdú (ICREA Academia Researcher at the Department of Philosophy at the UAB) will take part.
