Museum and Digital Culture – the Book

We are happy to be part of an exciting new book published by Springer Nature and edited by Jonathan Bowen and Tula Giannini. Together with Ann Borda, professor at the Melbourne University in Australia, we wrote a chapter about Chatbots and Museums, highlighting challenges and opportunities of engaging visitors with Artificial Intelligence.

Museum and Digital Culture: the concept

This book explores how digital culture is transforming museums in the 21st century. Offering a corpus of new evidence for readers to explore, the authors trace the digital evolution of the museum and that of their audiences, now fully immersed in digital life, from the Internet to home and work. In a world where life in code and digits has redefined human information behavior and dominates daily activity and communication, ubiquitous use of digital tools and technology is radically changing the social contexts and purposes of museum exhibitions and collections, the work of museum professionals and the expectations of visitors, real and virtual.
