    Hi everyone!

    I think that this experience has given to me lots of new ideas to think about and I was very happy to have met such amazing people during it.

    Having the opportunity to directly interact with the speakers during conferences and with other participants in the forum has been very inspiring for me and I really liked some of the ideas shared in this moments.

    About the speakers, I would like to say that choosing is difficult, since each one of them has brought his own experience that was very different from the one of the others and unique in its own way.

    But If I really have to do so my eligible candidates would be: Luca Prasso, Carola Pescio Canale and Giuliano Iacobelli.

    I really liked the story of Luca, and the concept behind his job. I also appreciated his personal life story and its strenght on not giving up when difficulties occur.

    About Carola I liked her energy and her open mindness about new projects and challenges.

    About Giuliano I really appreciated his startup story and how he finally reached Silicon Valley through it.

    I really liked the insights he gave us about startups and the startup world.

    Happy summer, and see you in September 🙂

    Hi everyone! 🙂


    @giuliapiesco
    I think that one of the most effective manner to decrease biases in software is the ability of a programmer to leave the code for a while and take some time to gain expertise about the field he is going to code into.

    Also the ability to cooperate with experts in the field is a strong point in decreasing biases and a behavior that in my opinion has to be encouraged.

    Another thing that a programmer should take care of is the data that he is going to use to train a model: for example sometimes old data can picture a society that is quite different from the one that we are experiencing nowadays and so using them to “teach a machine how to think” can result quite dangerous and can easily generate biases.

    There are also some mathematical/statistical tool that can help in order to decrease biases in software like for example Gini and Shannon indexes for measuring heterogeneity and diversity in a dataset.

    I’m looking forward to hear your opinions on the topic!

    Hi everyone! 🙂

    How are doing?


    @giuliapiesco
    about startup there’s one in particular I’m following which is call “Sbam”, it’s Italian and they developed a software that, through analytics, it’s able to give you advices to increase your presence on social media in terms of number of followers.

    I like them because I know the founders personally and I know they are a great team, very enthusiastic and competent.

    I didn’t know about the Uber fact, but I knew that ethical implications of AI is a very important argument and that we, as developers, have to become more and more aware of it and apply all the possible strategies in order to decrease biases that our softwares can voluntarily or not generate.

    About design unluckily I’m not so into it, but I’ve always been very curious 🙂

    I will have a look at the book you suggested and if you have more (maybe specific for beginners) I will be happy to read them.


    @christianpaesante
    I’m curious about your role in we student as well, can you tell us more?

    I’m looking forward to read your answers!

    Hi everyone,

    First of all I would like to thank Giuliano for yesterday’s conference, it was very inspiring to me to hear his amazing story of success (I don’t tag him because I’m not sure he is in the forum but I hope he can receive the message as well)

    About the future of workplace I think that smartworking will become more and more integrated in society (especially in the tech field).

    The first reason why I think so is that the infrastructure for managing this type of job has already been created and tested during the pandemic situation and so huge amount of money have been payed for that and so I think that it will not stop abruptly.

    Probably the days right after the lockdown will stop people will go to the office/university immediately but after a while I think that the presence of family and the confort of being at home will make people go back soon.

    About smartworking I would like to open a discussion about the psychological and social consequences that this technology will have on workers.

    In my opinion this will be a great opportunity for working parents to spend more time with their children but in the other hand it can result a bit alienating for a young person living alone.

    And of course, as @christianpaesante said, find the right work/private life balance is not easy.

    I think also that this technology can change the traffic situation in big cities: for example during the pandemic situation a city like Rome was not as trafficated as usual and going somewhere will be easier in terms of time.

    Or can populate small cities (mountain on seaside) that normally are desert in some period of the year.

    I’m looking forward to hear your opinion on the topic! And see you all soon in the next conference 🙂

    Hi everyone,

    In response to @sofia and @parro question I think that an early experience abroad can have a strong impact on the people you are.

    In fact, at a very young age, you probabily find yourself in certain “adult situations” for the first time and you have to find solutions to them abroad.

    As an example I will bring my one year experience in China: I went there when I was 19 years old, I had no concept of bank account, laundry, cooking and many other adults basical things.
    That experience radically changed myself and gave me a methodology to perform this tasks that I still use here in Italy.
    Probabily if I was older, that experience would have touched me less since I would have already developed strategies to solve this “issues”.
    In general if you are older, you have experienced more of the world and the probabilities be surprised by  basical things are lower.

    About @mstrocchi question, I would  search for money in every way possible, maybe through crowfounding on private investors.
    Probably I won’t quit my job because working to save money for my project is still an option to consider if the two above doesn’t go as expected.
    I would run the startup and my job in parallel, it won’t be the easiest thing and there would be many sleepless nights but as many says “no pain no gain”: if you have a dream and you believe in it woking hard is preliminary step to go through.

    I’m looking forward to hear your opinions on the topic! 🙂

    Hi everyone,

    First of all I would like to thank @danielromano for the question, it made my mind busy for about two days and it took a lots of time to understand the most suitable answer to give.

    About that I would like to cite one of my professors here at Politecnico that said that when an answer is not immediate the real answer is that “it depends”, the context was a bit different but I will take the statement as it is.

    Considering only the extreme situation in which there’s no middle way I would say that the main dependence constraint is  age:  as @christianpaesante  said affections may change and I believe as well, in particular when you are on twenties.

    For this reason, in my current situation I will go for my dreams without any regrets or second thought.

    Probabily if I was older, with a family and children my answer would have been different.

    Luckily reality is much more variegate and mediation is possible and so probably I will consider the idea of moving and follow my dreams even with family and children, as @mstrocchi said the world is connected and the possibility to comunicate with friends and relatives all around the world is a strong point.

    For this reason I believe that with strong organization skills, huge exploitation of videocall technologies and availability to take a flight every second even not choosing between the two is possible.

    I’m looking forward to hear your opinions and see you all in tomorrow’s conference! 🙂

    Hi everyone!

    I see lots of interesting topics coming up!

    About corporate culture I agree with @dariaarena when she said that “working with respect, determination, frankness makes the difference” and I also think that passion for what you do is the real engine that moves and makes your actions great.

    For this reason I think that working in an environment that motivates you to develop this kind of feeling towards your job is one of the  best thing that can happen to you, even more valuable that money.

    In my opinion the best manager is the one that first of all is able to inspire his team with his passion and actions, behaving more like a leader than a boss.

    Discovering the best qualities of its peers and having the ability to combine them in order to achieve ambitious goals.

    Being the first to celebrate good results and last to fall down when things go wrong.

    I would like also to thank Andrea Vaccaro for today’s webinar, I found it very fascinating and I appreciated in particular the last part when the theme of failure was discussed and it’s fun to notice how behind great successes there’s always a huge amount of failures and hard work.

    About that I find very inspiring this quote by Samuel Beckett: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”

    I’m looking forward to hear your opinions and see you all soon in the next webinar. 😊

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Eleonora Carletti and I’m a Data Science and Engineering master course student.

    I’ve always been strongly passionate in programming.
    As a teen I started developing mobile app games for fun and that was the reason why I decided to attend a Computer Engineering course.
    While attending my bachelor I had the opportunity to travel to China for one year, learning a new language and getting to know a different beautiful culture.

    During my life I also collaborated in lots of projects regarding the app world and this experience taught me to think also outside the code only job.
    As a consequence I decided to apply for a Costumer Facing role at Microsoft and I did a six months internship there.

    Recently I got interested in the AI world and in particular in the big potential that this technology has in helping people performing everyday tasks.

    Another field I’m working on is education: I’m a coach at Futurmakers technology school.
    Beside of giving classes, I’m also studying strategies and softwares to bring kids close to the tech world at a very young age.

    I decided to apply for this project because I think that this can be an extremely good opportunity to get to know better new technologies and latest discovers made in my field of study.

    I’m really looking forward to meet you all!

    Hi everyone!

    First of all I would like to thank @simone-dalledonne for sharing this video with us: it has been really interesting and inspiring to get to know Loris story and how it developed over time.

    I really appreciated the part when Loris encourages to think “outside of the box” because I think that this can be the best ability to grow up to reach every goal you have in mind.

    Another thing I found really inspiring is the “it’s better to try and not succeed than not to try at all” approach, because normally people tends not to give up the certain for the uncertain and this makes me think that if something big can occur it will probably happen in the uncertain.

    It’s like riding a bicycle: only if you move you go on, you can move good or bad but if you don’t move you surely fall.

    Another thing I would like give my opinion about is the power of the network versus competencies.

    I think that this two parts should be fifty-fifty balanced: a good network is surely important because it gives you the opportunity to be inspired by your peers and to learn something from them.

    The more and valuable you have the more chance you have to open your mind and see things from a different point of view.

    About competencies I think that they are extremely important as well because they not only give you the opportunity to enrich yourself with new abilities but they also are a key component to make your job more and more valuable.

    About opensource, I unfortunately never participated in the developing of a project but I used lots of tool.

    The one I suggest you to try (and that I’m currently using right now) is “Prestashop” that lets you to easily build and customize an e-commerce website.

    I’m looking forward to see you all soon in the next conference!
