Digitalization of society

The digitalization of society is one of the most critical issues of our time. Today digital artefacts and online practices penetrate a major portion of our everyday organizational, social and economic activities. The scale and scope of the transformative power in emerging phenomena such as connectivity, platforms, algorithmic power, and big data is more vigorous than other disruptive technologies in history. This leads to great opportunities, but also to great challenges.
