In the XXI Century societies are becoming more open – balancing between choices of top-to down and bottom up, individual and collective, passive responsibility and proactive entrepreneurship, exercising tolerance, inclusion and democracy. The course provides the first insight to open society values and future expectations and its requirements towards digital technologies using some application cases.
The overview is provided of the main technologies:
– linked open data
– open society technologies in the context of information and knowledge management
– choice designs and the theory of matching (algorithms) and market design in supporting the choice in public service

In practical evaluation activities the generative design approach is introduced as a value based initiative for creating society empowering technologies and evaluating their merit for open society development.
