Transforming Sociotech Design
Transforming Sociotech Design
We are social beings by nature, and have been for ages.
Today, technologies enable new ways to shrink the world by bringing us closer together. While these innovations often serve as media channels, they can also be purposefully designed to transform our lives.
— Prof. Agnis Stibe

Prof. Agnis Stibe expands and refines knowledge on Transforming Sociotech Design. At Paris ESLSCA Business School, he empowers people with strategies and innovations on Socially Influencing Systems, transforming digital marketing, and persuasive behavioral economics. At MIT Media Lab, he established research on Persuasive Cities that encourage healthy and sustainable routines. He believes that our world can become a better place thought purposefully designed urban spaces that successfully blend technological advancements with human nature. His research is built upon socio-psychological theories to design long-lasting transformations of our lives.

Prof. Agnis Stibe is an active member of the Persuasive Technology community, frequently speaking at annual scientific conferences and effectively collaborating with industry. He has worked for a number of Fortune 100 companies, such as Hewlett-Packard and Oracle. He has received awards from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT Media Lab), Nokia Foundation, Dr. Theo and Friedl Schoeller Research Center for Business and Society, and the Latvian Fund for Education. Prof. Stibe holds a master’s degree in computer science from the University of Latvia, an MBA from the RTU Riga Business School, a PhD from the University of Oulu, Finland, and a postdoctoral training from the renowned MIT Media Lab.
