Press Release no. 13 of 29th JANUARY 2021
Villorba. What do a philosopher and a designer have in common? If the philosopher is Cosimo Accoto, who deals with the philosophy of automation and digital technologies, and the designer is someone like Lorenzo Ruggieri, who has always been involved in the field of Internet of Things, then the point of contact is Artificial Intelligence.
To find out what they have to say to each other - and to us - all we have to do is follow the conversation in live streaming on Facebook. A meeting that, in the spirit of the A.I.A. agora, will also involve our audience, who will be able to ask questions live to our guests.
