Résumé de la vidéo

The digital revolution is often thought of as a technical revolution that impacts a wide variety of human activities. Using a variety of examples involving children as well as adults, we argue that its reach is far wider in the sense that it modifies or inverts many of our basic perceptions such as those of space and time, and explain why algorithmic thinking deeply changes many elementary ways of reflecting and acting in field as varied as science, engineering, medicine, and art.
