Digitaler Salon – LOL war gestern

LOL was yesterday: Cat falls from sofa: Roflmao, epic fail! How does humour work on the web, and what goes viral? Dumbness prevails, deal with it! Soon AI and robots are going to make everybody laugh... The Digitaler Salon of the HIIG is going on an expedition through the funny spheres of the web in February: Whether it's cat content, Epic Fail Compilation #111, pile of poo, smiley and eggplant - humour in the net seems to know its own laws. Do older generations still understand digital fun? When does a meme actually go viral? Is the most important thing to be blunt? Or do you just don't understand? What kind of humour do we find on the Internet, who has the right influencers and how does this affect our communication? Algorithms are already beginning to write jokes - will they have the laughs on their side at some point?
