While working on this edition of Frontiers Milan, we thought on many different ideas related to space. We met Jay P. Trimble in San Francisco and were amazed by his thinking. Whilst looking at stars, planets and satellites, he has developed all these ideas on mission control technologies that make use of design thinking and open source software.. A new way of conceiving mission critical open software. He's actually opening up the world of NASA to a wider audience.
At Frontiers Milan, you will meet Jay and the top map specialist in Italy, EBWorld, and play with new paradigms to find new ideas on software, work, visualization and collaboration. Don't miss the opportunity to play with aerospace research – only at Frontiers Conference Milan, 21 september 2017.
FOG COMPUTING IS ALREADY HERE
Two years ago, Flavio Bonomi, an innovator at Cisco, told us about his new project. He had a photo in his hand, of a group of world renowned experts in networking. They were visiting the Monterey Aquarium. But they weren’t there just to see sea creatures, but talking about their next adventure. Their venture Nebbiolo Technologies defines the new era of Fog Computing. The name was invented by Ginny Nicholas. Nebbiolo derives from the latin word nebula (and the Italian equivalent nebbia), which stands for misty.
While the Cloud is up in the sky, Fog is not. Fog computing brings data close to where it is most needed, thus low latency for critical uses (hospitals, automated factories, ...). At Frontiers Milan, you will meet Andrea Robbiani of Nebbiolo Technologies, who will show you how easy it is to switch to this new technology to reach a new level of efficiency and cost effectiveness in managing data for critical situations. Only at Frontiers!
ARDUINO AND MORE ARDUINO
Just before the explosion of the Internet of Things, Arduino was a topic in any conference on innovation and technology in USA. But Arduino has always had the aura of the most important technologies of our times: when Massimo Banzi, at the very beginning of Open Hardware, presented Arduino, everybody felt like they were attending at the Homebrew Computer Club.
Everything in the history of Arduino is mythical: its open culture, its constant grassroot innovation and its struggles. No history of success comes free of charge.
The new CEO of Arduino, Fabio Volante, is coming to frontiers to tell us a story about the future. Fabio is a longtime friend of Frontiers Conference, so we can guarantee the outstanding level of his approach and the true innovative spirit that he's going to put in his next project. Come at Frontiers and meet Fabio Violante!
This is a story of two friends: one is Ignazio Licata, who lives in Trapani, Sicily; the other is Fabrizio Tamburini, of the ZKM Karlsruhe, an art, media and culture centre in Germany. Together, they decided to take on the debate on dark matter. And while the rest of the world imagines that aliens are creating mega structures around distant stars, Licata and Tamburini devised the effect of axions trapped around the stars.
While waiting to read their article on axions and dark matter on Physica Scripta, the official publication of the Royal Academy of Sweden, we will get a preview to their discovery and their thinking, and the to learn about the implications of it on our current understanding of the universe. Things that happen at Frontiers. Join us at Frontiers – up among the stars and deep in the dark side of the universe, 22 September 2017.
ENTER THE STARTUP ARENA
We're sending some of the most interesting startup to the stars. And some of them to Frontiers Health in Berlin. They will make their pitch to an audience of experts and will get the chance to take part to one of the most important conferences in the health industry.
