Emerging Technologies & Well-Being

Date: 15th & 16th November 2023


The workshop on "Emerging Technologies and Wellbeing" explores the relationship between technology and well-being. Among the topics discussed at the workshop are Confucian philosophies in today's context, East Asian views on well-being, the impact of daily digital habits, and understanding the line between social media use and addiction. Additionally, the workshop will look at the significance of technology not just in relation to well-being but also to meaning in life, and it will shed light on how academic ideas can align with real-world issues in the digital well-being sector. While our primary focus is on digital well-being, we are keen to explore how all new technologies influence well-being.
