CeBIT 2016 - Day 2 - 80

Can you be happy in the digital space alone? "No," said Professor Wolfgang Huber on the Open Stage CEBIT Global Conferences 2016.

"If you live only in the digital world alone it will make you unhappy. People need real interaction and personal touch."
Professor Wolfgang Huber

Responsible use of technology

But even if he had a certain skepticism towards the digital, he exposed himself not as totally techic-contra in the talk with Lena Schiller Clausen and Nicole Nehaus-Laug on "The ethical aspect of the digital transformation" . Instead, he called for a responsible and careful handling of modern technology.

Learn to control technology

"Digital Ethics is a key education issue," he said. “One who does not want to be dominated by technology, must learn to master the technology."
