A new format to look beyond patterns and shape possible futures

On 16 December the second illimity talk as part of StartupItalia! Open Summit, the largest event in Italy for startups and innovation.

A conversation between Luciano Floridi, Professor of Philosophy and Ethics of Information at Oxford University, and Corrado Passera, illimity CEO, focusing on the term "onlife" as the starting point for an exploration of the complex connection between new technologies and being human.

What will our future be like with our online and offline existence? How will we find our way through this hyperconnected world? What outlook is required to innovate today? What role will responsible capitalism play?

What Luciano Floridi and Corrado Passera have to say in our search for new models we can use to provide a simple interpretation of those complex processes – digital transformation, global infosphere and the fourth industrial revolution – we are living through.

The goal is to identify opportunities and risks that come with such enormous change and thus tackle the future in an informed paradigm, adopting a responsible approach to future generations, the working world and society in general.
