The two day symposium brought together interdisciplinary scholars, artists, and media industry representatives to reflect on the nature of knowledge in the digital age. How do the tools of new media transform the questions we ask, how do they enable new questions, and how do they foreclose other questions?
Bernard Stiegler, director of the Institut de recherche et d’innovation (IRI) in France, gave the keynote talk on cognition and digital technologies.
Below is the transcript of his keynote (downlodable via the link).
