The next version of the Internet will be more and more human-centered and customized. For both designers and developers, one of the next challenges is to create dynamic interfaces that can optimize their usage based on the information available, the user who is visiting the page, and her behavior.
To anticipate these trends we have organized a meetup with the AI and Design communities, calling developers and designers to form teams, brainstorm solutions to real scenario issues, and come up with new ideas and challenges.

Join us on Jun 13th to discuss this topic with Andrea.
Developed at Google Ventures, the Design Sprint methodology is a process that helps startup founders to design, prototype and get customers feedback on their business idea in just 5 days.

The advent of artificial intelligence will bring on the table new and unexpected problematics and opportunities on which the legislator will be called to legislate. Or not. For this reason, Pi Campus merged with the Italian Parliament’s Intergroup on AI to organize a workshop for public administrators with the aim to inform Italian politicians on the most important aspects of the AI and provide them with some of the most important information required to face the new challenges.
Pi Campus invested in Lybra Tech, a startup that developed a revenue management system to provide hoteliers with actionable data in real time.
During this event, we will introduce you to two new scientific data-based theories that explain the new world we live in. The first one is the Economic Fitness and Complexity methodology, that can be used for monitoring, planning and forecasting the economic growth of companies, specific industries and, in general, the innovation and creativity process. The second theory describes the cognitive determinants behind misinformation and rumor spreading, and was already included in the Global Risk Report presented by the World Economic Forum. The event is invite-only. You can request an invitation here
On Friday, June 28th we organize a founders meetup with Andrew Kouri, former developer of the Tesla autopilot, who left Elon Musk’s company to found lvl5, a company focusing on deep learning, computer vision, and maps for autonomous vehicles. lvl5 was backed by Y Combinator, and we invested in the startup during the W17 Demo Day. Andrew and his co-founders recently agreed to be acquired.
