Description

With what challenges do the new technologies confront us? The human being has been living in an infosphere ever since the discovery of magnetism, electricity, electro-magnetic waves and radio technology. For the cohabitation of human beings as social beings, both the atmosphere and the infosphere are indispensable. Today, algorithms – from the stock market through to airports – are fundamental elements of our social order.
