Forms of humanism and the data order

Massimiliano Marianelli

With a view to changing the paradigm from an efficient economy to an effective economy and from a functional society to a functioning society, we will try to highlight the need to bring human beings back to the center. The data will be considered not as an end but as an effective means to facing the risks of an economy and a society that too often forgets about people’s real needs.

The rediscovery of the spatial dimension in a time of globalization and pandemic

Mariano Sartore

The historical moment we are experiencing invites us to re-discover some peculiar aspects of the city: its spatial dimension, the rediscovery of the local and the essential value of public space as a common good. In this context, what function and what role can technology play? We talk about it with Mariano Sartore, Urban Planner and Professor of Spatial Planning at the University of Perugia

Data, information, knowledge

Vittorio Pelligra

The road from datum to knowledge is long and bumpy. Information can not only have a very heterogeneous quality, but due to the characteristics of our cognitive processes, it can easily lead us astray. Being aware of the existence and functioning of these mental traps is the first step in learning to avoid them and thus with reality and its numerical representation.

The data, the story and the symbol

Elena Granata

The pure data does not affect our actions. The production of data doesn’t get the attention of the large public. Only when the abstract number becomes traceable to our experience, that datum takes on interest.

Benefits of Open Source Culture

Tonia Sapia

Digitization is transforming human life. What are the symptoms of this transformation? A predominantly virtual approach to learning and an almost total digitization of information that must always be available and used as quickly as possible. All human life is currently characterized by technological and liquid relationships, data is transformed into information which is constantly changing and is crucial for people’s daily lives, at work and in business. Context information management is the present and the future. Open Source culture and Open Source Communities are the winning foundations where contextual information has a beneficial impact on citizens’ lives. We talked about it with Tonia Sapia, Marketing and Project Manager of the FIWARE Foundation.

Data model and context broker

Andrea Chiancone

The needs and demands of contemporaneity require a rethinking of cities in an increasingly smart key. The concept of Smart City passes through an innovation that is primarily cultural and then technological. This webinar will provide some thought cues to stimulate technological innovation within our cities, deepening aspects concerning data models, integration with context information and software identified in this area as essential by the European Community. The guest of the webinar was Andrea Chiancone, TeamDev R&D Manager and FIWARE Certified Expert.
