Heritage virtualization – innovations in museum narrative

    Innovations, Vol. 8 (2020), Issue 2, pg(s) 69-72

    The topic of digitalization of heritage is one of the pressing issues regarding the protection and development of culture. Digitalization is making Europe’s cultural resources an important pillar of the digital economy and improving public access to the various forms of heritage and interaction between heritage and public. Heritage stored into the memory institutions with the advancement of digital technologies and communications, require a new “read”, in expanded historical, geographical, scientific, but already and technological context. In this sense, the research perspective that defines the present study views the world of digitalised cultural artefacts as a technologically mediated way not only of documenting, but also as a new way of telling stories and disseminating cultural knowledge in the form of virtual heritage (VH).

  • The specificity of the post-information age

    Science. Business. Society., Vol. 4 (2019), Issue 1, pg(s) 35-37

    What makes us call a new age a post-information one? New age is created by dominating technologies. These include DNA manipulation, also human. The ability to cut and paste parts of the DNA string has created new, previously unknown possibilities to interfere in the natural processes at the cell structure level.
    The next main factor shaping the social change is holographic technology. Due to the miniaturisation of these devices phone calls will be replaced by devices for holographic transmission and reconstruction. The change in mass communication will be significant. Information in the text form will be replaced by fully sensory, spatial images. These technologies obscure the differences between the real and artificial world and prepare new forms of human life institutionalisation.
    The third element creating a new age is micro, mezo and macro robotics. The technology of learning in action and obtaining information independently by robots creates new forms of work and social interactions for man as well as areas of man’s responsibility. In my presentation I will focus on four main trends, certain agents and organisational structures of the post-information society.
