Abstract

The digital world is quickly becoming a humanities sandbox, moving us from the notion of looking at screens to becoming part of the information. If software is eating the world, data is what the world is made of. From fin-tech to smart cities, from autonomous mobility to social interaction, there is a new set of growing fields that define every aspect of our lives. Areas such as artificial Intelligence, robotics, genomics, biotechnology, neuro-technology, adjustable reality and the codification of value interactions will let us re-imagine the value propositions of spaces not governed by fixed physical architectures, but dynamically adjusting to the wishes and intentions of the users.
