The Digital Transformation touches all areas of life. It cannot be reverted. In this channel I want to hear the voices of relevant people about their opinions on the Digital Transformation. I want to foster the dialog about the topics.
The digital transformation promises new business models, increased profits, and numerous simplifications in our everyday lives. Besides the many opportunities, there are also challenges that must be taken seriously. These challenges are typically non-technical, concerning the social implications of living with algorithms. Fears that were described in science fiction a long time ago - such as autonomous algorithms that take control over humans in different contexts - come close from a technical point of view. Partly they are already a reality today, requiring a responsible use of the available technology.
