A plea for better and more sustainable distruptive technologies

by Silvia Zimmermann

Smart technologies require Smart People. According to the Eurobarometer the world is concerned! Biggest problems like war, pollution, waste, proliferation of nuclear weapons, infectious diseases, increasing global population, the availability of energy, terrorism and the economic situation bother people around the globe with leaving poverty, hunger and the lack of drinking water the absolute number 1 issue globally. Instead of producing yet another form of Information Technology garbage our field should take these aspects into consideration when creating amazing technologies. In my presentation I will hopefully inspire you to go beyond the aspect of “what is technically feasible”. I will speak about suitable frameworks and development processes that will help us overcome the current nonsense and let us set a new focus for 2020 and beyond.
