Questions for a Future University

Together, the participants fact-checked the current state of digital transformation. What are the sources of information and which areas and structures shape public opinion? Who designs technology in accordance with human values? Who owns the truth? What about Nature? Land? Technology? Data? Knowledge? What options do we have to leverage digital technology for the betterment of society, and what are their feasibility and success rate? And what will be the role of universities?
