In the third instalment of the Resonances Festival, JRC scientists and EC policymakers worked arm in arm with twenty-three artists on the theme of Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Digital Transformation.
Central to their work was the new concept of datami, where new data meet the old concept of tatami: versatile, used for rest, repose, and concentration, unit of measure fore building. The datami invokes a much-needed unit of measure for our multifarious new identities. Digital meets the analogue, identities merge and online becomes onlife. New concepts swirling in our lives are demanding new practices. It is a research. It is a collective journey. It is also an exercise in democracy: what do we want from these Big Data?
