10 speeches with international thought leaders on topics that are impacting the future of work

LUCA DE BIASE

INNOVATION EDITOR @ IL SOLE 24 ORE AND NòVA24

“Work is his project”

The Great Transformation makes many jobs obsolete and creates many new ones. Researchers at the OECD tell us that the main consequence will probably be a deep change the way we work. Growth will be seen in the knowledge economy, in the economy of happiness, in the platform economy. For all of us, work will become our ability to design it.

BARBARA COMINELLI

COO, MARKETING AND OPERATIONS DIRECTOR @ MICROSOFT ITALIA

“A plan for the digital future of the country”

Italian companies appear to be more and more interested in Artificial Intelligence, but the new research conducted by Microsoft-EY shows a delay: compared to the European average of 32%, only 15% of local entreprises affirm to have gone further beyond pilot projects. In order to succeed with AI, they need to count on advanced capabilities. By 2020, with the ecosystem project “Ambizione Italia”, we aim at involving over 2 million Italian professionals and young people contributing to the diffusion of a new digital culture to build together the future of the country.

STEFANO TASCONE
MANAGING DIRECTOR @ ACCENTURE DIGITAL, INDUSTRY X.0 LEAD

“Intelligent products and processes: Industry X.0 and AI”

Current technology makes data collection and analysis relatively simple and fast and this rises a huge complexity to manage.

Intelligent products require an intelligent company to break its siloed structure and develop intelligent processes.

Accenture answer is a data centric organization, designed to satisfy business needs and able to return valuable insight within the entire organization.

STEFANO TROMBETTA

MANAGING DIRECTOR @ ACCENTURE STRATEGY, TALENT & ORGANIZATION LEAD

“The intelligent revolution: work in the time of artificial intelligence”

An alliance between humans and machines will usher in a new era of work and drive competitive advantage.

Accenture estimates that this could boost business revenues by 38 percent in the next  five years and generate higher levels of profitability and employment.

But the full promise of AI depends on humans and machines working together to develop differentiated customer experiences and to create entirely new products, services and markets. That is the real opportunity of AI.

BARBARA CAPUTO

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR @ UNIVERSITY OF ROME LA SAPIENZA AND SENIOR RESEARCHER AT ISTITUTO ITALIANO DI TECNOLOGIA

“See, understand and imagine the sense of things in the robots of tomorrow”

The sight is the dominant sense of human beings, with which we discover and understand the world. Today, what is the computerized vision for intelligent systems provided with a body and autonomy like robots? How can their ability to see and understand be compared to ours and which are the challenges in the robotics research field in a world where, in the next few years, robots are going to be increasingly close to us in our everyday life? During this talk, I will focus on these topics and show to what extent today’s technology can go farther and which are the paths that are currently leading to tomorrow’s.

MARCO BULGHERONI
VP GLOBAL R&D AND DESIGN @ ELECTROLUX PROFESSIONAL

“How diversity can drive innovation and enrich the human-machine symbiosis”

Which are the numbers that impact our future?
We can leverage on some dimensions we are all conscious about, but very few people are really doing something to shape living for the better.
Marco will share his vision from his professional experience, where the future of work is built on people empowerment.
Empowerment will be enabled by four different types of diversity: geography, generation, gender and “double-M”.

COSIMO ACCOTO
RESEARCH AFFILIATE @ MIT OF BOSTON

“The future of work between deep learning, robotics, blockchain and platforms”

Daniel Kahneman, eminent psychologist, author of the best-selling Thinking, Fast and Slow and Nobel Prize winner for economics, surprised everyone at a recent AI conference claiming that there are no human, physical, cognitive or emotional abilities that machines they will not be able to emulate

We will then start provocatively from this perspective to explore potential and emerging work futures at the intersection of general purpose technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain protocol.

We will look at the latest data and analyzes on code economics, robotic density, automation and platform heteromation strategies. With the visionary nature of the new economic science fiction, we will risk the horizons of meaning and action of next work. Finally, we will ask ourselves more radically: if the future is already at work, will the work have a future?

FERDINANDO AMETRANO

ADJUNCT PROFESSOR @ UNIVERSITA’ DEGLI STUDI MILANO BICOCCA

“Bitcoin, The Digital Gold Experiment”

Scarcity in digital realm has been achieved with an ingenious mix of cryptography, economic and monetary theory, distributed systems, and game theory. More a crypto-commodity than a crypto-currency, bitcoin is presented as digital equivalent of gold: for the first time in digital realm, there is an asset that can be transferred but not duplicated, inflated, or manipulated. Non-monetary applications of the underlying blockchain technology are critically explored, with emphasis on the great potential of time-stamping and notarization.

GIOVANNI RIZZO
CHIEF OF INNOVATION DIVISION @ ZCUBE – ZAMBON

“Doctor Who will be my son’s doctor”

Digital transformation and big data are shaping the life science sector.

The open innovation, by sharing knowledge, is changing the way how to find solutions for a clinical unmet need. By matching data analysis and experimental medicine the data science has become of extreme value for finding innovative solutions for the healthcare system, identifying personalised medicine and improving the quality of life of patients and people.

ALBERTO GARUCCIO
HEAD OF INNOVATION DISCOVERY @ INTESA SAN PAOLO INNOVATION CENTER

“Company Building as an approach to face new technological and business model challenges”

Company building as an approach to face new technological and business model challenges which come from innovation trends.

The Intesa Sanpaolo Innovation Center and GELLIFY’s case study shows an itinerary started together in 2018, which, based on Open Innovation principles, aimes at enhancing skills, capabilities and technologies, opening new markets with the aim of anticipating a potential growth
