The purposes are:
1) To analyze how current technological innovations and the frameworks 
of thought that they generate are capable of promoting processes of 
cultural development, economic growth, social inclusion and equity.
2) To examine the challenges that must be faced at a global level in an 
increasingly datacentric, hyperconnected and technological society, 
especially those that involve issues related to human rights and legal 
responsibilities, democratic representation and governance systems.
3) This conference also aims to discuss the ways in which research 
activities, private initiatives, public policies, economic investments, 
etc. should be channeled in the coming years to achieve a better future 
for all.
