We live in a “digital” world, the separation between physical and virtual makes (almost) no sense anymore. Here, the Corona pandemic has also acted as an accelerator/magnifier demonstrating that the future of our digital society is here with all its possibilities, but also shortcomings. Digital Humanism looks at this interplay of technology and human, it analyzes, and, most importantly, tries to influence the complex interplay of technology and humankind, for a better society and life. We recognize the need of an interdisciplinary approach, integrating humanities, social, technical and engineering sciences; we need to cross different disciplines and to break down disciplinary silos.
The Digital Humanism Summer School is a multi-day, interdisciplinary event that will take place from September 4 to 8, 2023 at TU Wien, Austria. Following the highly successful first edition in Vienna in 2021, the second Digital Humanism Summer School is again organized by the Faculty of Informatics of TU Wien in cooperation with the TU Wien Center for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (CAIML) and the Digital Enlightenment Forum. The aim of the summer school is to provide a platform to discuss and develop important topics related to Digital Humanism, such as generative AI, participation and democracy, digital policy and sovereignty, the role of platforms in the economy, data protection, AI and ethics, and fair systems. The speakers are internationally recognized experts from the fields of computer science, social sciences, and humanities.
