At re:publica, sparkling eyes do not only belong in front of the stages, unnexpected surprises can be found everywhere.
The re:publica Track unites supporting program, evening program and all the colorful ongoings, that can be discovered and shaped by you. Be prepared to get kidnapped by aliens, your decision on who to vote for is understood by an artificial intelligence and a machine that mixes cherry and banana juice tells you about your fortune. Also exciting: you will find video and sound installations about physicality and identity all over the station.
If you want to escape from the digital stream at some point, there is the possibility to play ukulele or to think about your relationship to your smartphone at Maya Magnas Performance. All of these activities take place as installations, performances, live-video-broadcasting and inside virtual reality.
A small hint at the end: there will be a lot of Disco Dance, so it is time to get your training shoes from the basement. Move your body to the POP!
- re:publicaBlockchain-In the upcoming IoT era, humans and machines do need to have secure and trustworthy digital identities. Only then data and values can be transferred reliably. This means that the modeling and handling of data and tokens needs to reach higher levels of security and transparency as well as respect for data privacy. Blockchain-enabled systems can achieve all of that, and on top automated data and value transfer. This will enable very efficient processes that use digital twins, trusted machine or sensor data, smart contracts and trustworthy identities to settle them.
- re:publicaBlockchain-Having in mind the enterprise mission, but also considering the social impact of new technologies in various fields, generates a paradigm shift. The role of enterprise shifts towards being a social enabler, contributor and partner for sustainable social development.
- re:publica-A Portable Network Kit (PNK) is a simply assembly of equipment that builds a basic wireless network (raspberry pi server + router + access point + battery). You can use it to communicate in an emergency, as an offline/local "sneakernet," or to share an internet connection. In this workshop we'll use a PNK to demystify wireless networking, and to create a consentful technology - one that embeds our consent as users, our control of our digital bodies, into tech design and function.
- re:publicaPOP-Data shapes our perceptions and determines our actions on an everyday basis. It is not easily perceptible, yet surrounding us everywhere. The data walkshop wants to challenge this by creating awareness on layers of data in spaces. We invite you to join our re:publica data walk and to sharpen your senses for the data around you: we walk through, investigate, map and visualise data to finally stimulate new ideas and debates around widespread datafication.
