THE PRESIDENT OF THE SCHOOL OF ROBOTICS, AT THE SDA BOCCONI DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION WORKSHOP HELD BY GIANLUCA SALVIOTTI, TALKS ABOUT THE SOCIAL IMPACT OF NAO AND COLLEAGUES

In the industrious silence of the corridors of SDA Bocconi School of Management, Psy’s hit Gangnam Style suddenly resounds. The music comes from the desk in lecture room 14, where the 58-centimetre Nao, a humanoid robot produced by SoftBank Robotics, is dancing (very well, by the way). A very funny scene, but far from a joke. That robotic exhibition was the preamble to a very serious (in terms of the topics covered) lesson in the Digital transformation course held by Gianluca Salviotti as part of the Microsoft Dynamics Academy, the academy that SDA Bocconi creates together with the Redmond-based company. On that day, the course featured Emanuele Micheli, president of the School of Robotics in Genoa, as a witness to the most advanced experiences of interaction between man and machine.

Once the music from Nao’s demo mode had finished, it became terribly serious. At stake is ‘how technologies are changing our lives in every way,’ Micheli explains. It’s true that robotics people are primarily interested in the fact that robots like Nao or Pepper create engagement, but then you have to find their usefulness, otherwise they remain just expensive gadgets. This is why Emanuele, his School and anyone else who shares this vision, immediately try to go beyond the wow effect produced by the robot or the videos of the table tennis champion who risks defeat by a Kuka robotic arm, to touch on the implications that all this entails.”
