International congress centre, Villa Erba, Cernobbio, Italy
On Saturday, November 9, the International congress centre of Villa Erba in Cernobbio, Italy, will open its doors to the 11th TEDxLakeComo. The theme this year is "Noi (sapiens), il progresso" [We (sapiens), progress], and it takes inspiration from the talk that Steven Pinker, Professor of Cognitive Sciences at Harvard, held at TED 2018, at which he wondered why, despite humanity is living in favorable conditions in which it had never lived until now, there is so much skepticism when we talk about progress. The Software Institute of the USI Faculty of Informatics is partner of TEDxLakeComo.
