The recently established program on Digital Humanism aims to describe, analyze, and influence the complex interplay of technology and humankind, envisaging a better society and life in the digitized era. It is run by the Institute in cooperation with Hannes Werthner, one of the leading experts in the field and initiator of the Vienna Manifesto on Digital Humanism.
Issues addressed under the program’s umbrella revolve around digitalization and its entanglement with contemporary social, political, and cultural developments – from algorithmic governance through the role of AI in popular culture to the ever-increasing permeation of our lives with digital devices.
Senior and Junior Visiting Fellows are invited to the Institute to explore the urgent intellectual challenges at the complex interplay of humans and machines. During their stay at the Institute, the fellows work on crucial topics in the field, pursue interdisciplinary research, and organize lectures and discussions reaching out to the public audience in Vienna and beyond.
Senior Visiting Fellowships are awarded by invitation only. An additional open call for applications is addressed to prospective Junior Visiting Fellows. Find more information about the Junior Visiting Fellowship here.
