Résumé :

n the age of internet, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and information and communication technologies it is practically impossible not to make use of the digital tools we are surrounded by. Many are useful, but are designed by and for commercial and marketing purposes – and use our data accordingly. But if we want to develop alternative, transformative economies (and not be transformed by the GAFAMs – the Google Amazon Facebook Apple Microsofts of this world…), then we must also create, adapt and use technologies that are designed in a cooperative and community oriented way – as well as transparent, respectful and non commercial.

This is why RIPESS Europe has been promoting the use of open-source, copyleft and ethically developed digital tools.
