The last hundred years has been synonymous with progress and rapid change for the humanity – among them globalization, urbanization, nanotechnology, virtual reality, the expansion of the Internet or alleviating poverty and hunger, extending the average life expectancy, the fight against illiteracy.
Every step, every progress, and change brings new challenges. The climate crisis and its effects, social inequality, artificial intelligence, and the digital revolution are fundamental issues that society should address intensively. We need solutions that can help navigate the complexities of life and lead to a sustainable future. In the global world, no matter where ideas and solutions come from, their relevance is essential. It is the task of each of us to take responsibility for all the areas with which we have intervened and which we have conquered as humanity. We should be able to find a sustainable way to live a fulfilling and responsible life in relation to ourselves and in relation to the world.
The fifth year of the Art & Tech Days festival will, therefore, be held in the spirit of the Human Responsibility theme – the ultimate responsibility of humans for their use and development of technologies and their impact on the environment and the rest of humanity.
We will look at the topic not only in terms of digital reality but also in terms of economic, social, and cultural points of view because, in our opinion, the common approach for all areas should be precisely responsibility. The Art & Tech Days Festival will take place from 24 to 29 November 2020 in Košice.
