The combination of physical and media space, of local place and digital networks, is coined Hybrid Space. Space today is transformed by technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) or Mixed Reality, becoming increasingly hybrid. With the Internet of Things (IoT) Hybrid Space is becoming ubiquitous. Artificial Intelligence and Big Data have the ambition and potential to algorithmically manage these Hybrid Spaces.
The workshop researches how to integrate Hybrid Space developments, with technologies such as AR, VR, IoT or AI, into meaningful applications for diplomats, international organisations and NGOs. It aims to create a group to further pursuit these issues with investigative research and ideation.
