Bundle it a department of technology

Talk by Arthur Stobbelaar (Dept)

Digital technology is no longer a tool that helps us in our daily lives, it has become the foundation and an absolute vital resource for our society. It has direct impact on political issues, global economies, and our collective welfare. It shapes who we are as a society going forward. Yet, governments have underestimated its impact for too long and are now faced with the task of policing it, while its knowledge is scattered. Join Technical Lead of Dept, Arthur Stobbelaar, in a talk about why the existence of a centralised Ministry of Technology is paramount to deal with Net Neutrality, Cryptocurrencies, and other issues we’ve faced in the past year.

Fake news, social addictiveness and dumb cities

Talk by Franklin Schamhart & Max Pinas (Dept)

We all know it, experiences in the past have gone from perfect examples of user engagement to today’s politically or commercially motivated messages mixed with highly addictive content. We are at the verge of breaking society as we know it. In this talk we explore how and why we need ethics for actual human beings in Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence and UX design, it is the only way forward in creating smarter cities we actually want to live in. And don’t worry, it will be filled with surprising, fun and sometimes yes… scary examples.
