Digital Society

The question is not when we will have a digital society because we already have one. The question is how to organise it as well and as responsible as possible.

The digital society is all around us, in anything from the algorithms that determine which messages you see, through to self-acting robots that sweep the seabed and use machine learning to distinguish plastic from seaweed. Although it may not be apparent to everyone, digital applications are changing the world: they are making it cleaner, more sustainable, more just, safer, more inclusive and healthier. But there are also threats in the areas of privacy, safety, cybersecurity and inequality – issues that EEMCS aims to tackle.
