The Paradox of Digital Creativity

Speaker: Drs. Tijmen Schep

Location: Blauwe Zaal Auditorium

The downside of our increasingly digital culture: the internet and big data are a threat to creative thinking and innovation.

The internet and the opportunities that big data offer should stimulate processes of creativity and innovation. Instead, we continuously feel Big Brother is watching us and we fear the lasting traces we leave on the internet. This influences our behavior; we don’t dare to think outside the box anymore. As a result, this inhibits the innovation our society needs. Tijmen Schep discusses the paradox of creative and innovative thinking in our increasingly digital culture.
