Areas of knowledge among others:
  • Engineering Sciences - System Science - Computer Science
  • Automation Technology - Quantum Mechanics - Quantum Physics - Artificial Intelligence
  • Psychology - Communication Sciences - Cognitive Science
  • The core of digital science is the digital space as a technical, social, economic, and political vector.
