Digital Realities as Key Technology for Socio-Economic Transitions
Digital Realities are smart and interactive digital environments that integrate seamlessly with data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, modelling simulation, and game and media technologies such as virtual reality.
These innovative technologies are already being used in many fields, but there is a need for cross-disciplinary theories, methodologies and tools. That is why the SPRONG-groep DIGIREAL-XL is building a Research, Development & Innovation centre, with the central theme of Digital Realities for socio-economic impact.
The SPRONG-groep, consisting among others of Breda University of Applied Sciences and Fontys Hogescholen, regards Digital Realities as an integrated socio-technical concept and is working on their effective and efficient development and production in an intersectoral and cross-disciplinary network. This network consists of, for instance, MindLabs, public-sector stakeholders, field labs, and network organisations such as Digishape and Chronosphere.
