We will address this topic with Barbara Ange, Associate Professor of Architectural and Urban Composition, DICATAM Department, University of Brescia and Paolo Belgenti, IoT Systems Researcher, DII Department, University of Brescia.
2. Artificial intelligence. Technological development has led humans to the invention of artificial intelligence and robotics, with relevant anthropological and social implications, which the professor will discuss in greater depth. Massimo Temporelli, who has been dealing with the relationship between humans and technology for 25 years, with all the social and anthropological ramifications that this relationship entails and will entail.
3. Social and environmental sustainability and inclusion. Innovation and inclusion: The social economy is based on the creation of economic value, but also on a commitment to social well-being and reducing inequality. The environment becomes an essential factor for sustainability, as the environmental, social and economic dimensions are integrated and cannot be considered independently. From the environment to economics, topics will be explained with National Geographic Director Marco Cattaneo.
Places and spaces of culture and history spread throughout the municipality’s territory The days of the festival will be hosted by: Villa Muti Bernardelli, home to the Library and Museum of Arms and Weapon Traditions, the Mila Park and the Palace of Freedom, a creative and dynamic space center for youth politics and innovation, the three headquarters of “G.Beretta” and the Enzino Cinema Theater.
