A new format to look beyond patterns and shape possible futures. With inspiring personalities from different fields of innovation.
The road to create a new business is not always easy. The entrepreneur has to give shape to his or her intuitions and is often confronted with reality and numerous obstacles along the way. But if we look at successful entrepreneurs, is it possible to identify a lowest common denominator in their thinking or behavior?
What if there was a codified formula to create a future entrepreneurial class?
At the sixth illimity talk, in collaboration with the Herbert Simon Society, Corrado Passera, founder and CEO of illimity, and Saras D. Sarasvathy, professor of strategy, entrepreneurship and ethics at Darden (University of Virginia), will talk about how it is possible to engage the younger generation in cultivating and developing an entrepreneurial spirit and mindset.

To better understand the world around us
Technology, innovation, entrepreneurship, sustainability, training. We want to create a physical and digital meeting space to discuss the issues that are transforming our current way of living so that we are prepared for the future.
Inspiring personalities of different fields
From Italy to Silicon Valley, by way of Oxford. We will hear the courageous stories of scientists, businessmen and opinion leaders who are changing the world with their ideas
To give shape to our potential
There are times when we must seek inspiration and look inside ourselves to release our potential. The illimity talks are a window into what's in store for us in the future, on the sliding doors that help us to create ideas and interpret the junctions of life with courage so that we can make our projects possible.

All the critical distinctions between people and machines - such as history, a sense of aesthetics, myths and profound values - are only possible and communicable using language. Language is the tool that enables us to produce an endless number of sentences from an arsenal of a few dozen sounds, to learn how to do things we've never done before, to imagine things that nobody has thought of before, to simulate the future, to transfer information that does not exist, to foresee what might lie ahead and to create abstract notions like gods.

A debate between two serial innovators: illimity's CEO Corrado Passera and the physicist and inventor Federico Faggin.

There is something that we all have inside, that we need to develop it with curiosity and interdisciplinarity. It is called potential, because it can become a great power, allowing us to be free.
Delegating our choices and having a machine make them requires one key thing, trust.

Innovation means asking yourself: what is the problem that is really close to my heart?
Professor of Philosophy at Oxford
Robots have a single powerful brain to handle billions of different bodies in the same way. They are not aggressive, they don't fall in love and, in the end, they are all the same. By contrast, human beings are tied to biochemical changes: we get hungry, we suffer from fear and envy and we fall in love. Our brains are limited in capacity, but we are also unique, creative, unreliable, irrational, resentful and brilliant. We are human.

We need a plan: the choices we make today determine how we will live in the future. To combat climate change, we must change ourselves
