Semiotics in the age of disruptive innovations

Palabras clave: Disruptive innovation, Semiotics, Sign. / Innovación disruptiva, Semiótica, Signo.




The state of signs and language is unstable. As it is fluid, it must present itself freely without intermittent barriers. The change in disruptive innovation is a key factor in making sign language / fluent language no longer static or frozen, so that we cannot separate truth from falsehood, real things from illusions, and freedom from confusion. Disruptive innovation makes digital concepts replace analog ones, making possible the dualistic approach of signs in the development of software processing.
