The Festival dell’Economia of Trento is back

May 27, 2022

More than 200 free events animating the city of Trento from 2 to 5 June 2022

The Festival dell’Economia of  Trento is at its 17th edition and is organized by the Autonomous Province of Trento, through Trentino Marketing, and by Gruppo 24 ORE in collaboration with the University and the Municipality of Trento.

An all-embracing program, starting from the theme chosen for the 2022 edition – “The Pandemic aftermath (and with a war underway), AMIDST ORDER AND DISRUPTION” – will spark the debate among the brightest minds in the scientific world, key opinion leaders and distinguished experts from the most diverse disciplines to look at how the world has changed after the pandemic and the war in Ukraine.

A must-see four-day event graced by the presence of 8 Nobel Laureates, over 75 speakers from the academic world, 20 distinguished international and national economists, 26 representatives from the most prominent European and national institutions, 36 international speakers, over 30 managers and entrepreneurs from some of the leading Italian and multinational companies, and 11 Ministers.

Alongside the official program, the new formula of the Festival dell’Economia di Trento also includes many other initiatives to broaden the variety and additional forms of discussion and in-depth analysis (check the full program here).

A special event organized by the Bruno Kessler Foundation is scheduled on June 4 at 6 p.m. in the Depero Room of Palazzo della Provincia, entitled “The New Frontiers of Artificial Intelligence.”

It will be a rich and in-depth dialogue between FBK President Francesco Profumo and the journalist Gerardo Graziola on artificial intelligence, which is increasingly present in our lives: from the pioneering studies of Alan Turing to the definition of the term in the 1950s up to the present day. In addition to an excursus on key terms such as deep learning, machine learning, neural networks, and the different possible approaches to AI, Profumo will focus on what are the new frontiers and future applications of this powerful tool, for example in the fields of Industry 4.0 and health.
