Cyber-creativity and gender equality in innovation: the IFAB 4 Next Generation Talents event with Unibo and Alstom

Following the success of the first three meetings, which saw the participation of over 100 university students, the fourth appointment of the 2024 edition of the IFAB 4 Next Generation Talents program, realized with the support of five sponsoring companies and in collaboration with BOOM, will take place on Friday, March 8th. The speaker will be Prof. Giovanni Emanuele Corazza, Full Professor at the Department of Electrical, Electronic, and Information Engineering at the University of Bologna and founder of the Marconi Institute of Creativity.

The theme of creativity will be addressed by the speaker in relation to the new frontiers of technology and Artificial Intelligence. During the seminar, which coincides with the symbolic date of International Women’s Day, Prof. Corazza will offer insights on the role that technology, supporting human creativity, can play as a key tool for achieving gender equality in the world of innovation.

At the end of the seminar, Susanna Scarciglia will illustrate how the concept of innovation is closely linked to that of sustainability. She will do this by bringing the experience of Alstom, one of the sponsoring companies of the 2024 edition of the program.
