2nd Weizenbaum Conference: “Challenges of Digital Inequality. Digital Education | Digital Work | Digital Life”

Date 16 - 17 May 2019
Venue Urania, Berlin, Germany
Organisation Weizenbaum Institute

The Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society is organising a conference on Thursday, 16 May and Friday, 17 May 2019 on the subject of “Challenges of Digital Inequality: Digital Education, Digital Work, Digital Life”.

The aim of the conference is to bring together different disciplinary perspectives (e.g. education and social sciences, legal studies, communication science, computer science, economics science and engineering science) to highlight the challenges, drivers and consequences of inequality in the age of digitalisation. In this context, we strive to identify viable solutions to ensure the creation of a self-determined society.

Digitalisation transforms the society we live in today: It changes the way we communicate, learn, work, and live. Digital technologies provide access to information anytime and anywhere and promise to empower users around the world by delivering more and easier opportunities for transparency and social participation. Despite this potential, modern societies are increasingly witnessing a gaping chasm of inequality as social actors experience differential results of ubiquitous digitalisation around the world. Understanding and finding ways to solve this paradox is a primary motivation for the Weizenbaum Conference 2019.
