Technology Outlook on the ETH Zurich

The Technology Outlook has established itself as an annual symposium of the Swiss Informatics Society. It traditionally takes up socially relevant topics of digitization in the context of the megatrends virtualization, personalization, automation, big data, etc. and discusses their long-term, positive and negative effects on society and the world we live in “from a higher vantage point”, so to speak. High-caliber, international speakers from the academic world will present, in generally understandable terms, sometimes astonishing results from the context of their research, and will take questions from the moderator and the audience as part of a panel. This year’s Technology Outlook is themed “Homo Digitalis.” Focus topics include Big Data and its uses, human-machine interaction, power of algorithms, digital democracy, cyber profiling and software security. Stay informed about digital developments from an appointed expert source and don’t miss out on attending Technology Outlook at ETH Zurich’s prestigious Auditorium Maximum.
