Lecture about Digitalisation in Science and Society

December 11, 2018

As part of an interdisciplinary lecture series Andreas Trügler held two lectures this semester about digitalisation in science and society at the University of Graz.

He discussed the basics of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and neural networks as well as important principles of digital data transmission, the internet of things, and big data.

Besides a critical discussion of the social credit system in China and addressing the importance of privacy, data protection and digital security, he also presented various scientific examples of digitalisation, e.g. big data generated in Astrophysics or data management at the European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN in Switzerland.
