Talk: What role for (ICT) technologies in a sustainability perspective?
This talk will discuss the role that technology can play in achieving environmental sustainability. It will attempt to inform the distinction that seems necessary between goals and strategies for achieving them. The presentation will also give some hints on how to limit the strategies of technological progress in order to control the rebound and systemic effects induced by these strategies.
