Have you ever thought about your dog being connected to the Internet? Or whales? Bees?
Will humans connect animals like things (lamps, refrigerators, smoke detectors) and themselves?
This is the initial question for a unique event, the ‘Internet of Animals Convention 2019’ (Feb 19-Mar 2), that will explore the future of animals in a more and more digitalized and virtualized world.
This workshop is an introduction to the project, which is based on the experimental free studying platform FUFF.
We will try to understand the chemistry of drivers and technical possibilities that will force developments and disruptions. And analogies to the human world.
The workshop will be adjusted to the background of the attendants.

FUFF is an abstract experimental university platform, a complementary idea of research and studying, supporting you to experiment with new forms, new contents, and new goals of studying. It started in the 2000er years as a local project in Frankfurt but since is not bound to a location.
Ifuz started the ‘Internet Of Animals’ project several years ago at FUFF as a spin off from Dirk Engel’s ‘Future of media’ research project. In the beginning it appeared to be an obscure idea, but it is meanwhile received more and more as a project with multiple levels and an evolution of topics.
