The phenomenon of the “end-of-history” illusion   Recently updated !

Navigating through the jungle of information using AI

The problem of being overwhelmed and trapped in a flood of information is not only inherent in our daily modern lives, but a challenge faced in research and development in general. Could AI help us out with this debacle? But first, it is important to understand what the actual issues […]


TEDxVienna Adventures: Prototyping at the AIT 1

  “It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.” Scott Belsky. In this spirit, TEDxVienna went on adventures in Vienna and this time did not only want to spread ideas, but figure out how to test ideas. Once a theory, concept or idea is born, the adventure does not […]


TEDxVienna Vsauce

Why (we do not need to learn more hard facts).

Why? The parade question nowadays. Asking why has become the synonym for an enlightened, well-balanced and youthful life.

Nowadays, participation of amateurs in science is for research, what crowdfunding is for the start-up scene – an amplification of capacity.

“We believe that fighting crime should be easy: we provide effective, easy-to-use offensive technology to the worldwide law enforcement and intelligence communities.”  THIS IS NOT A BAD JOKE! Actually this is a serious advertisement from the Italian surveillance company HackingTeam targeting government agencies to become new clients. Their big-brother items are consumed among […]


online communication

Why we need a new culture of confrontation.

Recently I am less worried about a cyber-attack than a shit storm. The internet, formerly known as the liberation from conventions, is broken. Looking at my Facebook newsfeed, I see the same statements to be shared over and over again: “Vote for Van der Bellen”, “Help refugees!” or “Why Trump is […]
