Developing digital technologies

We need to pay increasingly more attention to integrating digital solutions in specific environments. For example, for social environments, the results of digitalization should be perceived as being a natural part of our environment and society. Analogously, this holds also when blending digitalization into an industrial environment, or when integrating digitalization into our natural environments.

Making adoptable solutions requires deep knowledge of technology as well as the environment into which solutions are to be embedded, yet notably understanding the various ways that interaction between the two takes place. As an example, developing digital solutions that are aware of the social context in which they operate, such as is the case with social robotics, is a deep-scientifical and socially relevant problem.
