Digital Humanism: Informatics in Times of COVID-19

Digital Humanism: Informatics in Times of COVID-19

Informatics and IT in general provide the basic infrastructure to keep the world running (home office, distant learning, communications, information sharing, etc.). Imagine our world without IT – it would not work. In addition, Informatics is also essential in current coronavirus related research, e.g. in pharmaceutics, in forecasting virus spread, or evaluating economic measures.

What’s more, the coronavirus has almost completely moved us into the online world within a few days only. We are experiencing a real life experiment: a digital transformation of our society. This raises several issues related to our topic of Digital Humanism, the complex relationship of Informatics and society. At the event, we want to discuss this accelerated transformation in its political, ethical, and social dimensions, but we also want to review the contribution of Informatics to managing the corona crisis, discuss the current urgent privacy issues, look at the impact on society, politics, and what it means to be a digital human in and post COVID-19 times.

This event is supported by and co-organized with the Digital Enlightenment Forum Brussels, IEEE, Informatics Europe, WWTF, and the Faculty of Informatics of TU Wien.
