In his keynote, Andrew Keen will shed light on how to solve the problems of surveillance capitalism, big data monopolists, irresponsible Silicon Valley billionaires, fake news, online anger and loneliness, mass technological unemployment, digital addiction and the existential risk of smart algorithms.

Create Visual Snack Content, Generate Interest – and Then?

Images and video clips are great ways to capture people’s attention for a few moments, and the short shelf life of content today is forcing professionals to take a different approach to marketing. But what happens once you have generated that interest? This lab will provide the answers, together with an insight into the current market environment. You will discuss whether you can in fact influence user behaviour, how to do it, and strategies to keep people coming back for more. You will also have a go at creating your own content using your smartphone.

Is it possible to successfully divide work between man and machine? What abilities do people need to develop in a world where a large share of their workload can be efficiently and effectively carried out by their AI colleagues? And what does all this have to do with meditation?
The Mind In lab will shed some light on the mindfulness trend in the context of the digital transformation and offer you the opportunity to find out what it’s all about – without any hint of a dogmatic approach.

Senseable Cities

The increasing deployment of sensors and handheld electronics in recent years is allowing a new approach to the study of the built environment. The way we describe and understand cities is being radically transformed – alongside the tools we use to design them and impact on their physical structure. The contribution from Prof. Carlo Ratti will address these issues from a critical point of view through projects by the Senseable City Laboratory, a research initiative at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the design office Carlo Ratti Associati.

SATW TecToday Big Data

Dealing with data in the digital world

Data on where we are, what we are doing and who we are communicating with is routinely collected from countless devices. This is not targeted monitoring – rather, an inherent feature of digital technology. This information can be evaluated with ever more complex procedures, and then used to support vendors and manufacturers when it comes to product development and innovation.

The SATW TecToday Big Data session is being held in collaboration with our educational and science partner, the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences SATW. Experts from the fields of data protection, ethics and business will be talking about the challenges and opportunities of big data, as well as how things might develop in future. The panel discussion will be moderated by Sandro Brotz. Entry to this event is free of charge.

Making The Change Successfully

It takes more than good strategies and endless PowerPoint presentations to prepare an organisation for the digital transformation and give it a more competitive edge – without a modern leadership model and the ability to get employees on board, inspire and lead them, it is practically impossible. The process is similar to the planning and implementation of a political campaign to mobilizse volunteers or a corporate campaign carried out using the business campaigning® model. In this lab, a bit of theory and some real-life case studies will provide valuable lessons for change management and on how to successfully navigate the digital transformation.

Digital Business & Ethical Awareness

In this interactive lab, we will thus draw from participants‘’ everyday work experiences in order to develop critical thinkings skills and ethical awareness for digital business.

Making The Change Successfully

It takes more than good strategies and endless PowerPoint presentations to prepare an organisation for the digital transformation and give it a more competitive edge – without a modern leadership model and the ability to get employees on board, inspire and lead them, it is practically impossible. The process is similar to the planning and implementation of a political campaign to mobilizse volunteers or a corporate campaign carried out using the business campaigning® model. In this lab, a bit of theory and some real-life case studies will provide valuable lessons for change management and on how to successfully navigate the digital transformation.

The media and digital transformation

Fake news, social bots and manipulation

The media industry is affected by digital transformation like no other and has already seen sweeping changes with far-reaching consequences. However, as evidenced by buzzwords such as “fake news” and “social bots”, the challenges facing journalists and media companies show no signs of abating. As technology advances and the potential for manipulating the media via digital means becomes ever greater, fundamental questions arise concerning the role of the media in democratic discourse.

In order to address these issues, the Digital Society Initiative and the Research Institute for the Public Sphere and Society of the University of Zurich (UZH) have joined forces with the Digital Festival to stage a public debate on the subject of digital transformation. The event will begin with a presentation given by researchers from the UZH, highlighting some of the latest examples of how digital tools and social bots can be used to manipulate the media. Following this, moderator Marc Jäggi (Radio 1) will host a debate between Pascale Bruderer (Member of the Council of States), Ladina Heimgartner (Director of Radiotelevisiun Svizra Rumantscha RTR), Professor Abraham Bernstein (Department of Informatics, UZH) and Linards Udris (Research Institute for the Public Sphere and Society, UZH) on what these new challenges mean for the media landscape. The event is free to attend.

Kibit Hack

Afternoon Hacking for Kids

In collaboration with our great partner, the Museum of Digital Art (MuDA), this session will celebrate the concept of hacking as the practice of modifying features of an original system in order to accomplish a goal outside of the creator’s mind. This afternoon is part of MuDA’s beloved Kibit, a free bi-monthly open lab full of fun, screen-free activities, to introduce children to computational, logical thinking and the most basic of programming concepts. Kids of people with a Digital Festival pass are invited to join this special hack session and explore all that is possible with just a little hack!

Condition: Kids between 4 and 10 years (from age 7 without care of their parents).
