Organized from the Council for a 21st Century Progressive Economy
There is hardly any concept as vague and ubiquitous as “digitalization.” But what exactly does this catchphrase mean? The
Council for a 21st Century Progressive is getting to the bottom of this and other questions. Their focus is not limited to
buzzwords hyped in the media like 4.0, robots, Google cars, or the Internet of Things; instead they turn their attention to
socially relevant questions: How are these technological opportunities changing our social and economic fabric? Which social
and economic conditions are necessary to make these changes socially acceptable?
Digitalization, robotization, and artificial intelligence will be explored in depth and from various angles: from the organization
of work, the financing of society, and education in times of artificial intelligence to the ethical issues of human-robot
interaction. The Council for a 21st Century Progressive Economy will present its resolution on these topics and discuss it
with experts from Austria and abroad.
