EURIDICE undertakes to build the social innovators of the future with advanced digital technologies, with an emphasis on the societally highly influential sectors of Education, Communication, and Culture. The skills needs of such social digital innovators cross disciplines.
One cannot properly contribute to digital innovation, we believe, if one has either a purely technical understanding of digital technology, or in contrast a purely non-technical non-ICT disciplinary view on things.
In the EURIDICE approach, students acquire core technical and engineering knowledge and hands-on experience regarding advanced digital technologies, by following an Informatics-oriented track of advanced digital technology and engineering (esp. AI, ML, Data Science, Cybersecurity), tailored to students with non-ICT backgrounds.
Advanced digital technologies impact society in various fundamental ways, and this calls for contributions, perspectives, and analyses of digital challenge themes. This requires an interdisciplinary approach fromvarious perspectives: law, humanities, social sciences, philosophy, computer science and artificial intelligence. This is what EURIDICE is going to provide.
