About this Course

Have you ever experienced that your printer got stuck at a piece of paper? What if that happened every time you print?

At first I was afraid that this would be a course on the boring part of technology, but it is not. It is an interesting course on standardisation in technology, showing the historical impact of standardisation while focussing on the newest developments of autonomous driving and privacy. I can now see how standardisation will have a huge impact on how companies like Facebook can be regulated, but also how valuable it is to try to set a standard and increase the impact of technological innovations on the world.
