About the Course

How should we as individuals navigate in a time signified by major technological change and new conditions for our privacy? What are the consequences of introducing new technologies in companies and organizations, and for the way we interact with each other? And what does the technology of the future look like?

The course provides a broad overview of the latest research in the field of information systems, linked to phenomena such as digital activism, RPA, artificial intelligence, blockchains, agile transformation and open data. The course participants meet world-leading researchers who share their latest research results, and discuss the consequences of the development we are now seeing and what might be around the corner. The course is intended for individuals with an interest in gaining a deeper understanding of what digitalization means, and that are interested in learning about the latest research before it becomes commonplace. In this way, the course is aimed at both practitioners and students.

The language of instruction is English.
