For a Human-Centered AI

Lorenzo Perin

Born in Riva del Garda in 1999, after high school he enrolled in a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, which he earned in 2021. He is currently in his second year of Organization, Society and Technology, a master’s degree in sociology in which he reflects on the increasingly close relationship between society and technology.
Lorenzo has had a few experiences in the world of communication. The first was at the newspaper l’Universitario, run entirely by University of Trento undergraduates, during his final year of his three-year degree, for which he wrote, edited and corrected cultural and scientific articles.
Later, this experience led him to an internship as a content writer at Tutored (now Joinrs), a digital platform that aims to connect academics and the world of work. In February 2023, it was the turn of UnitrentoMag, the official magazine of the University of Trento, at which he honed, thanks to the support of professionals in the field, his writing skills with a journalistic slant. Since October 2023, she has been collaborating as part of her training internship with FBK’s communications unit.
