At Cobianchi, we have lessons till 2 pm. So if we could move the appointment to 2 pm, will be better for us.December 13, 2018 at 23:50 #3108
About the fake news topic I think that an algorithm should be used to find and ban them. But it can’t work very well to uncover them all, because like the one showed in the video it’s very difficult to detect. So there should be other strategies too. I think the government could help solving this problem by establish a “Fake news free Journalist” certificate. A certificate that a journalist can earn by doing some specific courses and pledging that he or she won’t publish any article with fake news inside it. If he do so, at first he will have to pay a fine. And if he continues he will lose the certificate. It something like “D.O.P.” (Denominazione di origine protetta) certificate for foods, but in this case for journalists. So if you read an article and you see that the author has this certificate you can be sure that what is written inside it is true.
I think drones will be used more and more. For this reason they have to be regulated. Like it has been done with cars. At the beginning there weren’t many laws about them, but now we have traffic laws and we have to take the license to drive a car. The government should form a drone traffic code, inside it there should be clear regulamentation on what you can do with drones, and what you can’t do, and what happens if you don’t respect this rules. Also istitutions like ONU have to discuss about this argument. Because drones aren’t used only for good reasons like bringing drugs in places far away or going into enviroments dangerous for humans, or for reasons of practical utility like are testing Google and Amazon, but they are used also for terrible reasons like in wars and conflicts. They should express also on what a company can do with the data collected by its drones. In this case the work to do is similar to the work to do about the information collect by social networks,
Of course drones will steal jobs from human. But also in this case we have already got through a similar situation: the industrial revolution where machines took place of the humans in a lot of jobs in the factories. There will be crisies for some people who will lose their job, we should find a way to minimize this effect, but after a while the society will adapt to it. Drones will be used widely in the transport area. A sector where they can be very useful is the emergency sector, not only because drones can go where the humans can’t, like it has already been done after the collapse of the Morandi bridge in Genoa, but for example if someone is lost in the mountains, an emergency situation that happens frequently in our province, we could send a fleet of drones that can cover more space in a shorter time than a group of people can do, increasing this way the probability to find the lost person alive and using less human energy.
In conlcusion I think drones will be very useful and improve our lives, but there have to be rules regulating them to protect use from the side effects.
Have a nice day,

My name is Sophie Cavallini, I’m 18 years old and I live in Cannobio (VB). I’m attending the 5th year in the “Applied Science” course at the Liceo “L. Cobianchi”.
Next year I think I will study Physics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. Since I was a kid, I have always liked scientific and technological subjects. So I think that study something that is a part of both world, the science one and the tech one, will be perfect for me. In particular, I’m interested in the application of physics to improve our life and to fight climate change, like using nuclear fusion to produce energy.
Since I’m in high school I’ve attended a lot of math and science competions, like the “Mathematical Olympiad”, the “Mad for Science Challenge” and the “Digital Math Training”, getting some good results. The things I like most about this competions is the fact that I have the oppurtinity to meet other people with my same interest, to get inspired by them in general by the entire enviroment and to use advanced technology, that we don’t usually use in class.
In 2015 I took part in the “World Scout Jamboree” in Japan. There were 40000 people from 155 countries. It was an amazing experience, and I had the oppurtunity to exchange ideas with people from all around the planet and to see how the world community could cooperate.
For this reasons I think the SVST would be a great oppurtunity the improve my life, both on the carreer aspect and on a more personal aspect.
See you soon in the forum!
