Does Technology Create Loneliness?
DRESDEN, GERMANY--(Korea Newswire) April 13, 2012 -- Between May 23 and May 25 Scientists and CEOs of World-Leading Technology Enterprises Will Discuss Visionary Technologies and Their Consequences for Human Coexistence After 2020. Central Question: How Will Humans Live in 10, 50 and 100 Years? IEEE, the World's Largest Professional Association of Engineers of the Electro Technology and Informatics Industries, Encourages to Take a Look at the Future

Does the increasing dominance of technology in society lead to loneliness of the individual? “No!”, says Gerhard Fettweis, Professor at the Vodafone Chair for Mobile Communications Systems at the Technical University Dresden, Germany, and IEEE fellow. “Even if we, today and in the future, use mobile communication systems and Internet to shop, exchange knowledge, find new friends and chat -- the virtual world can never replace the real world and the basic human desire for direct, physical experience and face-to-face interaction”, believes the international mobile communication expert. “Our world in 50 years will, of course, be deeply influenced by interconnected networks of communicating technologies”, says Professor Fettweis. “But we will use them efficiently to synchronize personal freedom and professional responsibilities so seamlessly that we will have more spare time to spend with friends and family.”

At this year‘s conference “IEEE Technology Time Machine (TTM) - A Symposium on Technologies Beyond 2020” international industry, science and politics experts will discuss visionary technologies and their effects on human life in 10, 50 and 100 years. The symposium, taking place in Dresden, Germany, May 23 through May 25, 2012 will bring 300 CEOs, CTOs, CIOs and leading scientists from all over the world to Silicon Saxony, Europe’s leading cluster for micro- and nanoelectronics.
