Cyber-physical systems as a cultural phenomenon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper deals with signs of the emerging digital society, which is considered to bring a new form of culture – Digital culture. A number of features of Digital culture are discussed. One of such features – emergence of cyber-physical systems. It is shown that characteristics of the cyber-physical systems correspond to symptoms of the digital society: blurring of distinctions between reality and virtuality; between people, machines and nature; reversal from scarcity to abundance of information; shifting from primacy of entities to primacy of interactions. These symptoms, being manifested in characteristics of the cyber-physical systems, define a specific character of the technological culture of digital society and allow predicting its tendencies.
