The 'digital world': open, fair, diverse, sustainable, democratic?

This 3rd edition of the Opera Aperta Streams panel-discussion explores the question of how we as humanity can help shape a transformation towards digital humanism.

Can a future 'digital world' be open, fair, diverse, sustainable and democratic?

Who will shape the ethical guidelines for this?

Who should have control over the systems and is there really a danger that AI will become a global instrument of power?
