Einblicke in Chiles digitale Welt. – Ein Reisebericht.

Von Lies van Roessel, Osvaldo Saldias, Martin Wrobel and Max von Grafenstein.

Two weeks ago, a scientific delegation from the Institute got a fantastic insight into Chile’s digital ecosystem. Three of our departments (Innovation, Global Constitutionalism, and Policy & Governance) joined forces in a mission that aimed at exploring possible collaboration with Chilean actors. Thanks to the generous sponsorship from the Chilean Agency for Economic Development (CORFO) and the invitation by Santiago-based accelerator Magical Startups, as well as the local Universidad de Chile, we could participate in two milestones: the Digital Summit 2015, taking place at 14 January, and the conference on public administration in the digital era, on the 16.

However, before we got to give our presentation, we had the privilege of meeting crucial actors of the Chilean political stage with regard to entrepreneurship, innovation and e-government. Straight after setting foot on Chilean soil, the Minister of Economic Affairs Luis Felipe Céspedes, accepted to meet us in an enriching exchange of experiences, while on the day after we were meeting vice president of the Senate Eugenio Tuma Sedan. Both meetings gave us important insights into how the Chilean government stimulates the economy, and in particular innovation and entrepreneurship. The minister and senator were very interested in our research topics, consulting activities and their interconnectivity, both to understand their own ecosystem better and to be able to measure the success of the incentives they set for innovation. In the light of the ongoing legislation process of the Chilean data protection law, the current draft of the European data protection regulation served another topic of discussion about the right balance between technological innovation and the social aspects of Chilean economy.

At the Digital Summit 2015, we got into direct contact with this startup ecosystem. Magical Startups did an excellent job organizing the event, gathering over threehundred interested people, most of whom were entrepreneurs. The event was composed of three main parts. Firstly, CEO Tadashi Takaoka presented Magical Startups’ business philosophy. Among other things, he spoke about their criteria for investing in startups, such as complementary team skills (“at least one developer!”), international market potential, and the importance of sales for validating a business model. In the second part of the event, it was HIIG’s turn. In several short presentations, Osvaldo, Martin, Max, and Lies presented the institute, the startup clinics and the video-platform knowledge base, as well as their individual research projects. In the third and last part of the day, several South-American investors gave a reverse pitch to attract startups to apply. After this, there was ample opportunity for networking, and many business cards were exchanged. For an impression of the event, take a look at this video.

The second milestone was the academic conference hosted by the Universidad de Chile, in collaboration with our institute. Together with the Chilean academia and the public sector, Rüdiger and Osvaldo discussed the future of public administration in the digital era. The contributions of the representatives of the Chilean Ministries of Economics, of Health, of Foreign Relations and the Supreme Court gave us a privileged insight into the current Chilean administrative dimension.

One particularly interesting discussion took place with the research department of economic development and innovation at the University de Desarrollo (UDD), regarding topics such as Big Data, Internet of Things and Smart City.

The demanding but highly fruitful week ended with a Chilean barbecue organized by Magical Startups.

Hereby we’d like to render many thanks to Corfo, Magical Startups, Prof. Salvador Millaleo from Universidad de Chile and Osvaldo Saldias for facilitating and organizing this magnificent trip. We are sure it will yield further cooperation between Santiago and Berlin!

Former Researcher: The evolving digital society

Forschungsthema im Fokus

Du siehst eine Bibliothek mit einer runden Treppe die sich in die höhe schraubt. Sie steht sinnbildlich für die sich stetig weiterentwickelnden digitalen Infrastrukturen unserer Wissensgesellschaft. You see a library with a round staircase that spirals upwards. It symbolises the constantly evolving digital infrastructures of our knowledge society.

Digitale Infrastrukturen der Wissensgesellschaft

In unserem Alltag nutzen wir technischen Werkzeuge und organisatorischen Systeme wie digitale Plattformen, um miteinander zu kommunizieren, zusammenarbeiten und Informationen austauschen.Digitale Technologien spielen somit eine immer entscheidendere Rolle in Bereichen wie der Forschung, Bildung, Wirtschaft oder Verwaltung. Wir untersuchen, wie diese digitalen Infrastrukturen für genutzt werden können, um Wissen zu schaffen, zu teilen und zugänglich zu machen.

Man sieht mehrer Spiegel, die in unterschiedlichen Formen angeordnet sind und verschiedene Oberflächen, wie den Himmel, eine Hauswand und so weiter widerspiegeln. Das Bild steht sinnbildlich für die vielen verschiedenen Bedeutungen von autonomen Systemen in unserer Gesellschaft. You see several mirrors arranged in different shapes reflecting different surfaces, such as the sky, a house wall and so on. The image is emblematic of the many different meanings of autonomous machines in our society.

Im Zeitalter der autonomen Systeme und Maschinen?

Können Maschinen autonom sein – oder ist das ein Privileg des Menschen? Diese kategorische Frage dominiert viele Diskussionen über unser Verhältnis zu den (vermeintlich) intelligenten Maschinen.

Arbeiten aus der Ferne? Wie Remote Work in die Städte abwandert

Fernarbeit ermöglicht es uns, von "überall" aus zu arbeiten. Warum also werden ausgerechnet die Städte zu den neuen Mega-Hubs für die digitale Arbeit? Geraten ländliche Regionen ins Hintertreffen?
