INFORMATION SOCIETY EVOLUTION AND EFFECTS: Keynote Lecture

Publikation: Forskning - peer reviewKonferenceabstrakt i proceeding

Abstrakt

The evolution and effects of the information society can be exemplified via many threads, both
in hard and soft science, according to ones’ discipline and field. In this contribution, the
speaker’s three decades of applied research acts as a vehicle to demonstrate development and
impact via directly and creatively applying technical advances to affect life quality at a societal
level. Illustrated is how empirical research successfully reaches beyond the walls of academia to
directly affect individuals, groups and communities across abilities and ages. Developments that
have led to patented commercial product, national and international projects, and industry startups
(including impactful third party research investigations) form the basis for discussion.
Beyond this, a wider more generic perspective reflects on product adoption that illustrate
todays’ contemporary e-society tendencies where recent influx and uptake of consumer-targeted
artificial reality products point to society’s desire for alternative sensory experiences. Posited is
how aligned with this desire there is a need for new ethical considerations in research as was
found in the speaker’s research at the end of the 20th century. The keynote will close with video
examples that directly address such ethical issues to promote further discussions and analogies.
