Current topics in Internet technologies

This is a very special course. It is held once a year in the summer term and deals with the latest developments on the Internet. The topics change every time and for the last couple of years we were basically dealing with what is called the "Digital Revolution". The course covers technical, social and business aspects of this revolution. The goal is to make students think about their future and to become comfortable with the idea of an ever changing and surprising development. Embedded are events (so called "days at HdM" where experts from academia or industry are invited to tell us about their visions. The course events are open to the public. The course received the Universities teaching award in 2017.
