Associate Professor at UPC – BarcelonaTech
Researcher at IDEAI-UPC

Davide Careglio received the M.Sc. double degree in telecommunications engineering and electrical engineering from Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) (2000) and Politecnico di Torino (2001), respectively, and his PhD from UPC in 2005.
His research interests are focused on algorithms and protocols for computer networks with special interests in interoperability, control and management, planning and routing. He has been involved in several EU and industrial research projects.

Co-organiser of the first HEDY Multiplier Event, Barcelona, May 16, 2022.

This workshop is promoted by HEDY – Life in the AI, a 2-year Erasmus+ project started in November 2021, aiming at offering a comprehensive and shared view of how AI is affecting our lives and reshaping our socioeconomic, cultural, and human environments by promoting critical reflection, self-based learning and discussion on these issues. HEDY is mainly, but not exclusively, targeting higher education audience.

Four specific objectives will be produced to reach this goal, the first of which is the Booklet. The Booklet is an essay defining the HEDY position on life in the AI era and the rational for that position. In this workshop, we present the results of our two-fold approach to build our rational about the challenges, opportunities and expected impact of AI on four topics: business, governance, skill & competencies, and people & lifestyle.

The workshop will be located at Sala d’Actes del Vèrtex, Universitat Politècnica de Barcelona, Plaça d’Eusebi Gëull 6, Barcelona. Coordinates: 41.39063, 2.11392

The workshop will be held in Catalan/Spanish.
