Planet Digital

Transdisciplinary lab for research and design

The effects of digitization profoundly affect all areas of life and work. Research on digitalization focuses on a dynamic phenomenon that spans the globe: from deep fakes in social networks to (in)fair algorithms in data-based decision-making systems to the political, economic and social implications in sourcing the raw materials for our digital devices.

Graduate Campus creates In cooperation with the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich now a platform that covers a comprehensive range of topics:
In 15 transdisciplinary collaborations between researchers from the UZH, the ZHdK and the ZHAW, projects are launched on specific topics of digitalization. New methods between research and design are developed and innovative formats for the dialog with the public are put to the test in a setting with public appeal.
