Modern business strategies have to take into account the humanistic aspect of technological progress. The mentality of the new generation of consumers – digital natives – is shaped along the main axes of digital transformation determined by the social landscape of AI, the culture of algorithms and video games, transhumanism and somatic capitalism as well as dataism and surveillance capitalism. The aim of workshop is to build the competences in the field of knowledge about the most important areas of technology having profound impact on culture and their market consequences.
How to make the company stronger in the cognitive dimension by the cooperation of man and technology? The concept of cognitive enhancement builds on direct support of the human mind through advanced technologies that can be used to strengthen, improve and exceed current human cognitive capabilities. Human cognitive authorities, supported by cognitive technology, create a new enhanced cognitive system, which capabilities are a fusion of the biological brain and external expanded minds. The development of AI and its social positioning in the area of all business branches inspires the strengthening of the human mind in terms of 1) motivational reinforcements and assessing intellectual abilities, 2) affective reinforcements and the ability to regulate the action of emotions in the cognitive process, 3) reinforcements related to the process of obtaining information and building knowledge, 4) reinforcements of the aesthetic sense and aestheticisation of reality, 5) perceptual reinforcements, i.e. the possibility of exceeding the current ranges of human senses, 6) qualitative reinforcements related to the reception of reality with new sensory channels that exceed existing perceptions. Thanks to cognitive technology and the extension of human physical ranges of perception we experience new qualities in the cognitive process affecting the processes of attention, memory, and creativity.

How to include the chance to cooperation on our own terms and conditions? How to create in cooperation with AI in a computational and artistic way simultaneously? The activities of artists working in the art@science paradigm provides valuable examples for business. Human and machine cooperation in specific implementations ‘Out of The Box’ thinking inspires new ways of perceiving the world and using of our mindware (software of our mind). In the workshop we are going to dwell into inspirational examples of co-creation with technology building synergy that cannot be achieved without technological support
Deep Fake Culture creates a false vision of reality by mutually reinforcing true information, half-truths and lies as well as multiplying sources in ‘media bubbles.’ How to reduce the overall impact and avoid negative aspect of fake culture on business? For this purpose it is necessary to analyze the construction and determinants of false communication. Knowledge of fake-forming factors and techniques allow us to identify destructive content. By mastering these skills we develop mental immunity for the fake – ‘blocking the pipe.’
How does technoculture affect love, friendship and trust in times of artificial intelligence? We live in a time of “becoming”. Sexdroids, digital children, holograms of the dead, social guardian robots, avatars and voice assistants – increasingly more perfect, emotionally simulating creatures will soon become part of our lives. Are we ready for the invasion of robotic and virtual embodiments? Human-artificial intelligence relations are designing a new future for our species. Everything that surrounds man in technological civilization is subject to constant updates and is awaiting the appearance of its new version.
