Uniwersytet Jagielloński w Krakowie presents the fourth Una Europa Masterclass workshop for PhD students, held under the DIGITALIZED! Society in the Era of Digital Revolution project.

Una Europa Masterclasses are a series of meetings between world-leading scientists, entrepreneurs, science managers, and opinion-makers to discuss a selected, vital problem falling within the thematic scope of the project.

The fourth Una Masterclass workshop The Individual in the Data Revolution: Empowerment and Responsibility will be held by Professor Davide Carneiro, an Adjunct Invited Professor at the School of Management and Technology, of the Polytechnic of Porto. Una Europa PhD students with an interest in the workshop topic are invited to apply now until 10 April, 2022.

The Individual in Data Revolution: Empowerment & Responsibility

Currently, all our activities generate data, and most of our decisions are driven, directly or indirectly, by data. In a few years, without asking for it, we became nodes in a worldwide network of consumers and producers of data. As individuals, never before have we had the power to connect to and influence everything around us, people and algorithms alike. We must however also acknowledge the responsibility that comes with this power. In such a digitalized world built entirely on data, to understand the reach that data and algorithms now have in our lives is a new form of literacy. Which is fundamental to try to glimpse or even influence the role that data will play in our lives, and where we, as individuals, will be in its midst. In this masterclass we will look at this ongoing technological revolution, understand how we got here, try to devise the potential futures, and discuss the role that each one of us plays towards deciding which of these futures becomes reality.

PhD students currently enrolled at an Una Europa university with an interest in the workshop topic are invited to submit their applications now. The selection of participants will be based on the order of application. Jagiellonian University covers the cost of flights, accommodation and provides catering.
