Intelligent technologies are changing the foundations of human life through software, sensors, interfaces, and robots. These developments not only affect our way of thinking and doing, but also our relationships with each other. The sixth edition of Technosphärenklänge illuminates these new realities and explores the interfaces between humans and machines.
