20110587 - Introduction to Digital Tecnologies

Technology is pervasive in our daily experience, but we must never forget that it is a tool at our service. We are surrounded by data, applications and digital services of all kinds and nature and we ourselves, more or less consciously, are users of these new digital technologies on a daily basis.
Technology makes it possible to record, store and analyze ever-growing quantities of data, to search, book, pay for goods and services, to manage relations with the public administration, to express our opinion on the services and goods we use, to access virtual realities, to consume entertainment services whenever we want and wherever we are, to communicate for work or pleasure with anyone wherever they are.
Therefore new problems of Control, Quality, Reliability, Certification, Security of the digital platforms on which we operate arise. The boundaries between social and private are more blurred, data can make us freer and more aware, or more vulnerable and orientable. Hand in hand with technology, it is necessary to develop the ability to search, integrate, elaborate, imagine and understand. And together with all this we need ethical awareness and social responsibility. In this context, great attention is paid to Artificial Intelligence and how it can be applied in different fields and how its applications are changing the world. Machine Learning in recent years has found wide areas of application, for example in the field of health.
In this course we will address these issues with an approach where the questions we ask ourselves will be more important than the answers we will find, together or individually.
