Outreach actions


Two videos were produced during the project presenting and explaining the work done in the project. The work was split in two parts, one on the superfluity of light, the second on the simulation of black holes.

Several subtitles are available, be sure to check the subtitles.

“An episode completely dedicated to Artificial Intelligence and its impact in scientific research and beyond. With an interview with Prof. Claudio Conti of La Sapienza University in Rome, we also try to understand what the distinctions between the various applications of AI are. What is deep learning? What are the peculiarities of a deep neural network? In this episode, we try to clarify what the differences and horizons of this field of research, which has been receiving enormous attention in recent years, are.
Here you will find one of the latest studies on the subject by Prof. Claudio Conti (In the episode, we also discuss Prof. Carlo Rovelli’s book “Helgoland” published by Adelphi.”
