Dear friends and fellow researchers,
Internet research is fun! This is the case when our fellows conduct a data analysis from our garden swing seat on a hot summer's day, with their feet in the paddling pool, or when two of our research programmes go head-to-head in a city-wide cycling competition. As scientists, however, we must continually ask ourselves how we can communicate our results to the world. Recently we hosted the “smartest night of the year” at the Institute, featuring enlightening talks, an AI oracle, dancing robots and open access minigolf! See below for drawings made at the Long Night of the Sciences, revealing how our visitors imagine the year 2040. We believe that everyone should participate in this journey of shaping digital society.
We hope you enjoy reading this newest issue of our Quarterly newsletter!
