The Centre for Informatics and Society (CIS) of the Faculty of Informatics is announcing a public lecture series on aspects of the Digital Transformation.

The Digital Transformation describes the fundamental changes society is currently undergoing due to the rapid and ubiquitous adaptation of digitial tools and technologies. Be it governance in the form of e-Democracy, search engines and the values they carry within their design and vision or the impact of new, data-driven business models on scientific inquiry: the impact of the Digital Transformation is as varied as it is ubiquitous.

Bridging the gap between digital technologies and their impact on society, the lectures cover a wide range of topics, from designing for quality of life in the digital age to the politics of search engines. International academics present multiple facets of the Digital Transformation related to their research.
