Digital Technology and Social Change Specialization

How Digital Technology Transforms Our Lives. Conceptual understanding of how digital technologies transform our lives, through social media, mobile connectivity, globalization, big data, and artificial intelligence.
This Specialization is intended for anyone who is interested in learning how digital technology (like generative AI and large learning models (LLM), the Metaverse, Blockchain and Persuasive Technologies, etc.) affects our lives. Context of this specialization includes education, health, entrepreneurship, democracy, among others. The two main concepts of the specialization are social change and technological change by digital means. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is not only an essential building block of a society, but currently also the driving force behind social development. Our generation has the luck to live through –and the responsibility to shape– an era in which mediated information and communication have become the catalyst of human progress. We will deepen our understanding on how social and technological revolutions go hand in hand.
