February 20 | Aula Seminari 29.30 – 12.30
Technologies at risk and the risks of technology
The session deals with the pursuit of knowledge, ownership of knowledge, dissemination of knowledge and utilization of knowledge in global and digitally mediatized contexts. By focusing on the wagers as well as on the opportunities of harnessing the knowledge-potential of digital technologies, presentations will touch upon controversial issues such as: Copyright or open access? Data cation or governing the commons? Are the innovations in information and communication technologies really implementing the emancipation of human beings? How is knowledge changing inside this process? Are technological transformations producing a post-human being?
