    Hello guys,
    In my opinion the conference of today was very interesting, we met three inspiring ligurian startups.
    Main topics were about: Big data (Rulex Inc, Clio Caminati); E-commerce (iKRIX Spa, Davide Medina); Consulting and software development in the IoT sector (FlairBit Srl, Luca Bixio).
    Clio Caminati explained Big data business opportunities. She described the power of putting data in the hands of business users. Big data analytics enables enterprises to produce a probabilistic model that will predict future events on the basis of current observations.
    Luca Bixio explained the different ways in which the IoT is changing the business world. For example, it was interesting to discover that the IoT has a big impact also for coffee machine manufacturers.
    Davide Medina described how e-commerce business models can be generated.
    What do you think about these three technological trends?
    I’m Luca, I have participated to the SVST2016, if there’s anything you need, don’t hesitate to ask 🙂

    Hi I’m Valentina.

    I was present at Paolo’s speech on October 20 and I would like to take part in this forum.

    I was present at the conference on October 27 and I can say that all the startuppers were very captivating. I’m particularly interested in internet of things so I appreciate Luca Bixio’s speech a lot. I would like to improve my knowledge about this subject.

    Hello!

    Unfortunately I wasn’t in classroom that day because I had a fever so I would ask to Luca and Valentina how the IoT is changing the business world and how it has a big impact on coffee machine manufacturers.

    Hi Elena!

    Luca Bixio explained that IoT is useful to big data because it allows to collect a huge quantity of data by connecting the objects to the internet.

    He proposed the example of the coffee machines. The problem is that the machines producer gives them free provided that the buyers (who are people who use these machines in bars etc.) would buy from the producer also the coffee (and other materials like milk and chocolate) used. But the buyers after a period of time begin to buy the coffee from other sellers because is cheaper. Connecting the machines to the internet allows the producer to know the exact quantity of coffee used in the machines and compare it with the quantity sold in order to control the buyers. Moreover Flairbit develops an app for smartphone which permits to interact with the machine from the smartphone and it identifies who can recharge the machine.

    I hope I’ve been clear.

    See you soon!

    Hi Valentina!

    You explained the IoT very well.

    The topic of the IoT is very interesting and I think that it  can also help people in their daily lives.

    Hello everyone!

    I listened this discussion and I found it very interesting!

    I really liked the concept of failure in the american mindset because in their conception the failure must be to grow up. According to them the luck is very important but it’s also important work hard to meet luck. It was very interesting know that the reference to innovation is often the entire ecosystem and not one person. Also simple people with good ideas can develop them and have succes.

    Hi!

    I watched this video too. I agree with Elena it’s very interesting and still actual.

    I’m very surprised by their concept of failure. it’s unusual listen that managers look for people who have failed; but actually may be a good idea  give a second chance to someone who failed, because maybe it was not his fault, maybe he didn’t have enought luck.

    I think that luck is an important part of success because if you have a great idea but the economic system is not ready or there are more urgent problems you might fail; but at the same time you must have a really good idea and the right skills to have success.

    They also talk about the ecosystem which is very important for the development of enterprises and it can be composed by: big companies, little and medium companies, university and also State. Moreover one of them suggests that at Trento there is a sort of little ecosystem.

    Big data as a propeller for enormous change ( positive or not…will see..) of our life .

    Psychologist Michal Kosinski developed a method to analyze people in minute detail based on their Facebook activity. Did a similar tool help propel Donald Trump to victory?

    Two reporters from Zurich-based Das Magazin went data-gathering.​ Read this story…just a beginning of an Era.
