Reality is described by data, numbers and characters which may, in the eyes of most, seem dry and cryptic. In this historical moment “artificial” and “autonomous” technologies are evolving to extract more precisely the information hidden within the data.
Alongside this technological process, man is questioning his position, rediscovering humanism as the key to grasping and representing the sensitive experience contained in the data. The mathematician Dedekind said that “numbers are free creations of the human spirit, and serve to grasp more easily and more precisely the diversity of things”. The workshop will be an opportunity to reflect on mathematics as an exercise in imagination and as an education to experiential rationality.
The participants will be accompanied to discover the data path, from the generation with IoT devices to their elaboration with AI techniques. During the workshop laboratory activities will be proposed, using open source technologies to create a device for monitoring the Internet of things and analyzing the data from the perspective of the BIG DATA.
“Reality can be represented as an architecture of data and relations. Data are a resource to be discovered, understood and valued”.
(Manifesto for Experiential Rationality, 2019)
WHY SIGN UP?
The workshop allows participants to approach with an experiential methodology a topic which is usually treated with theoretical methods (lectures, speeches, classes). This teaching method enables to understand the mechanisms that regulate the basic processes of Data Science and reveals two aspects that we usually tend to confuse: complexity and complication.
The two teachers are globally recognized professionals; Energy Way, their company, is the Italian company that boasts the supremacy of 3 team collaborators in the Forbes ranking dedicated to young talents under 30.
- The understanding of the key concepts of Data Science, keeping a human-centred approach.
- The understanding of the central value of perception and emotions in the human-machine interaction.
- An experience-based awareness of the real nature of Artificial Intelligence.
- Each phenomenon is a complex system of interconnected information, which could be considered as a key resource in fostering new opportunities for sustainable growth.
- We need a new “sensitivity” to find an intimate relationship with mathematics.
- It is important to rediscover the human side of the technological progress.
The workshop is designed for those interested in understanding the information flow (BIG DATA) in the framework of Data Science. More specifically, the syllabus has been conceived for managers and entrepreneurs.
