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. During the meetup, Andrew will talk about the process of starting a company, working with co-founders, and eventually making the decision to sell a company.
These events are reserved to Pi Campus founders and our guests. If you were not invited, you can request an invitation here. Be aware that requesting an invitation does not guarantee an invitation from us.

Can we use machine learning to fuel scientific discoveries? To answer this question, Andrea Banino, a machine learning researcher working on artificial general intelligence at DeepMind, will share with us the results of a research project showing that deep learning techniques could be used to investigate the brain in new intriguing ways. Join us on Jun 13th to discuss this topic with Andrea.
We are hosting a conversation with the author of the novel I solitari, a book that explores the challenges the new generation of talent, those young people who work in the startups we fund, is facing, and analyzes the crisis and transformation our society is experiencing. Join us to discuss the topics with writer and politician Alessandro Fusacchia.
Today, AI systems and products are becoming widespread in many aspects of everyday life, from insurance to policing and online platforms. Can we ensure that an algorithm is fair to everyone? While fairness has now become an essential concept in machine learning, its adoption still requires a fundamental shift in how we view and perceive intelligent systems. Join us to discuss this topic with Silvia Chiappa, Senior Research Scientist at DeepMind.
The Internet already triggered a revolution in the life of every one of us, but we are now facing a second revolution in which artificial intelligence, internet of things, and the digital economy will further change what is already changed. Join us to discuss with Google EMEA President Partnership Carlo D’Asaro Biondo why and how everything we thought we know is about to change again. Request an invitation
