September is about “Technology and Smart Technologies”
What is our concept of technology? How do we understand its influence on our daily life?
by PhD. Peter Novitzky
Date: Thursday Oct 1st at 17:45
Place: Kazerne, Eindhoven
About the presentation
After reviewing the ancient and modern concepts of technologies, the political implications of technologies will be highlighted. Through multiple examples the question will be investigated how reinforcing democratization, responsibility, and beneficence can play as crucial values in order to achieve responsible innovations.
During this presentation, you will become aware that beside the artistic and engineering aspects of technologies and innovations, we should pay extra attention to their political consequences. Shift from ‘disruptiveness’ to ‘beneficence’ is needed.
