Empowering the user: Self-organising socio-technical systems

As we become increasingly dependent on technology, it presents a challenge to engineer ever more complex socio-technical and cyber-physical systems. These systems need to empower users through self-organisation, adhere to human values, and make progress towards achieving higher goals, for example, the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Professor Jeremy Pitt will explore this engineering challenge in two parts: the theory and the practice. He will share his research and practices on how we can develop future systems which support self-organisation, sustainability and social justice.
