Find out what experts from a range of disciplines think about the future of the internet.
The Internet, the most complex human engineered endeavour to date, is changing everyday life in an unprecedented way and at an accelerating pace, and can be key to ease the sustainability challenges of the world (in environment, economy, energy, society, etc.).
Whereas its creation involved several different technical disciplines in communication and computer engineering, its ever changing and pervasive usages are being addressed by several different human disciplines such as sociology, psychology, marketing, anthropology. It thus becomes necessary today to put together life and human sciences to allow a holistic understanding of Internet developments, from an integrated technological, social and economic perspective.
The objective of this session, proposed by the PARADISO2 project, is to bring together any interested parties towards creating a new discipline, an “Internet science”, which is the subject of a multidisciplinary Network of Excellence launched in ICT Call 7.
