Tech for Good – Vienna UP Workshop
5. Mai um 8:00 am – 5:00 pmkostenlos
How can technology be used to find sustainable, ethical, and creative solutions in order to address and solve social issues of our time?
There is currently a vibrant movement of social-tech entrepreneurs that use emerging technologies such as Extended Reality, Artificial Intelligence, and Robotics to tackle social problems. This workshop will bring together people and companies driving the use of technology and the digital world to enhance people’s lives.
DATE & TIME
May 4th (May the 4th be with you!)
The goal is to discuss how emerging technologies could improve our society, for instance in the areas of health and well-being, as well as support the work of charity organizations and companies working on projects for social good.
A key outcome of this workshop is to connect people and to define topics such as ethics and sustainability in relation to emerging technologies. The discussions of this workshop are meant to become the foundation for future projects and ethical guidelines to improve corporate responsibility and digital solutions with social impact.
