Digital Worlds: Research on Digitalization and Digitalized Research
Oktober 25 @ 18:30 - 20:30
The Campus Oerlikon Lecture Series organized for the second time in the fall semester 2022 aims at exploring and discussing topics from different disciplinary perspectives. This year’s topic is «digitalization». The target audience are UZH members, interested staff members of companies surrounding Campus Oerlikon and local residents.
Digital technologies permeate virtually all areas of life. Recently, the Covid-19 pandemic has further accelerated digitalization in our everyday lives. The use of digital technologies in scientific research has also increased drastically within the last few decades. Digitalization allows scientists around the globe to make their research methods and results transparent and accessible (open science) and to share, access, or manage large amounts of data (big data), but also facilitates empirical work and helps communicate research results to a broad audience. While progressing digitalization has many advantages (e.g., fast information exchange, easy access to information and services, new possibilities of social, economic and political organization), there are also concerns and risks associated with it (e.g., digital divide, data security, fake news, cybercrime).
