THE CONCEPT

 

The first Next 100 Symposium in 2018 marked the end of World War I. In the aftermath of the war, the foundations for a multilateral world order were laid out. Today, those foundations are being challenged by a world overwhelmed with digital and information stimulation. 

 

The brightest minds from the technological and social scientific fields must come together to translate current global tensions into transformative opportunities. The Next 100 Symposium aims to provide a groundbreaking international platform to achieve this goal of linking technological progress with social and political advancement.

WE...

  • bring together the most progressive minds in the technological and computing fields with influential social scientists and thinkers to discuss rising challenges to the global order;

  • start a dialogue on all levels about how to use the most innovative computing capabilities to address the challenges being dealt with in the social scientific sphere;

  • draft a new perspective on global normative and institutional frameworks, which will result in a series of reflections for future debates, impact-related strategies, and policy recommendations.

REDEFINE NEXT 100
ReDefine Next 100 brings together selected students from diverse fields including humanities, social sciences, engineering, medicine, computing science, art and the natural sciences. In international teams, selected top young leaders will identify the issue they perceive to be the paramount global challenge in the future. Each diverse team will incorporate innovative ideas from various fields and will propose a way to address their selected challenge.  Teams will be invited to Prague for a five day-long workshop, where they will refine their work with the guidance of high-level mentors. The top teams from the seminar week, as selected by a panel of experts, will be invited to present their ideas at The Next 100 Symposium in November.

The world must establish a genuine dialogue between the most advanced technologies and artificial reasoning capabilities on the one hand, and the normative and critical capabilities of the social sciences on the other. We have reached the point where their mutual inspiration and cross-fertilization is a must.
