Sociale liv og strukturen af et minde

This paper seeks to examine how the formation of memories is affected by technology, with an interest in the mutual influence between human, technology and society. Our two science-theoretical standpoints, phenomenology and postphenomenology, are chosen in order to shed light on how smartphone technology shapes people and society, from a first-person perspective. The empirical methodology consists of phenomenological interviews which focus on individuals’ perception of the world.

SDG-accelerator program – HelloScience

This bachelor thesis is a preliminary study on a potential pilot project between UNDP and HelloScience.
The thesis presents a vision of change based on the results. The vision includes thoughts on how a preliminary study could move forward and what further steps need to be taken before launching a pilot project. Specifically this means developing prototypes for the incorporation of the various tools available to be tested in an onboarding of a few SME’s on the HelloScience platform. Especially to make sure the SME’s can take full potential of the storytelling element on the platform.

Thirdroom

This report seeks to evaluate on lessons learned so far running the digital platform Thirdroom since 2017, with its prime starting point in the Humtek house under RUC, IMT.
