Coders, designers, scientists, enthusiasts! Let’s investigate what joy is, how to easily invoke it, how to measure and help computers understand it. Let’s listen to the experts and hack our way into a more joyful internet.

The event is organized by Yle and the HUMEX research group in conjunction with LIFT festival.
