Neue Technologien lösen weitreichende Reformen aus und verändern die Art und Weise, wie wir leben und arbeiten. Wie gelingt es, Technologie für Menschen zu nutzen, die körperlich oder in ihren Sinnen beeinträchtigt sind? Wie kann die Digitalisierung diese im Alltag unterstützen, damit sie mehr Autonomie erlangen? Inklusion durch Technologie – Widerspruch oder eine echte Chance?

In Zusammenarbeit mit Pascale Bruderers Initiative «Autonomie dank Technologie» und Swisscom ermöglicht die Session spannende Einblicke in die Alltagshindernisse für beeinträchtigte Menschen und zeigt auf, mit welchen innovativen und technologischen Lösungen diese Alltagshindernisse reduziert werden können. In kurzen Vorträgen und eindrücklichen Demos erfährt ihr mehr über die vielfältigen Möglichkeiten zu mehr Selbstbestimmung und Inklusion. Renommierte Expertinnen und Experten diskutieren über den ökonomischen und gesellschaftlichen Stellenwert der neuen Möglichkeiten und zeigen bei dieser Gelegenheit die Potenziale und Handlungsfelder auf. Gespannt? Wir freuen uns auf Euch!

Man and machine - a symbiotic relationship: people design machines and take care of them, conversely they make our lives easier. So far so good. But for how much longer? Machines are becoming ever more efficient and are increasingly taking on tasks that were previously reserved for humans. Artificial intelligence raises the question of whether we will one day construct "intelligent" machines that are on a par or even superior to us. Can machines develop consciousness? How do human brains and artificial neural networks differ? What would be the social, political and economic consequences if one day machines outperform us? Look forward to an exciting evening in which we approach these big questions from different perspectives.

Computer scientists and entrepreneurs working with artificial intelligence reveal how they adapt visual perception to enable robots and intelligent systems to see and interpret the environment.

Much of how we perceive our daily lives stems from the visual input we receive ­ paintings, photographs, and videos reveal how we think, feel and perceive light. Creating sensors for robots, intelligent machines, and augmented reality, researchers enable machines to perceive information related to the task­at­hand, without having to produce visual images. Tasks such as search and rescue, industrial inspection, crop monitoring or archeological surveying require an unconventional approach that delivers visual information in differing formats. Speakers will reveal how sensory perception allows robotic devices to operate at high speeds and with a fraction of the power consumption of a conventional camera. They will also demonstrate multiple scene perception algorithms based in Computer Vision techniques and their applications.

As a participant, you will have the opportunity to challenge your own perception with interactive visual illusions and convince yourself that what your brain perceives is not what your eyes see.

Having opened early 2016, the Museum of Digital Art (MuDA) is Europe’s first physical and virtual museum dedicated to digital arts and successfully hosts exhibitions featuring exceptional artists from across all continents using code to create mind-blowing art at the intersection of science and creativity. In September, the MuDA will host an exhibition with Swiss artist Pe Lang who exploits the intrinsic properties of the materials, shapes and surfaces he uses. Through their experimental combination, he achieves to mechanically program their behaviours by exploring the oscillations between order and disarray, patterns and dissonance, flow and friction. Take the chance to broaden your mind and go play where 0s and 1s run free! People with a Digital Festival Pass are invited to join the exhibition for free.

An der Gaming und eSports Family Session erkunden Kinder und Eltern gemeinsam auf spielerische Weise die faszinierende Welt des Gaming, können professionelle eSports Athleten und Let's Play YouTuber persönlich kennenlernen und an der Live Gaming Challenge als Kind-Eltern-Team coole Preise abstauben. In Zusammenarbeit mit der Plattform Medienstark der Swisscom erhalten Kinder und Eltern einen umfassenden Einblick ins Gaming und erhalten die Möglichkeit mit Expertinnen und Experten offen über Chancen und Gefahren zu sprechen und Fragen zu stellen:

  • Welche Games eignen sich für schulpflichtige Kinder?
  • Welche Gaming-Typen gibt es?
  • Ist das angeschlagene Image von Games berechtigt?
  • Wie viel Gaming ist zu viel und wann besteht Suchtpotential?
  • Wie unterscheiden sich eSports von normalen Games?
  • Was liegen die Vor- und Nachteile von Gaming und eSports?
  • Wie genau sollten Eltern über das Spielverhalten ihrer Kinder Bescheid wissen?

Doch nur über Gaming zu sprechen wäre langweilig. Jung und Alt können an verschiedenen Gamestationen unterschiedliche Games selbst ausprobieren und beurteilen und sich an der Live Gaming Challenge messen.

Die Session richtet sich an Kinder im schulpflichtigen Alter (Primar- und Sekundarschule) in Begleitung eines Erwachsenen mit einem Digital Festival Pass oder Samstags-Tagespass.

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).
