Benefits and citizen protection in AI: Pompeo Pontone’s analysis

The progress achieved in the field of artificial intelligence, and the resulting advantages, should go hand in hand with the updated regulatory frameworks and should ensure the protection of individuals. Pompeo Pontone, Investor and Investment Specialist with 25 years of experience in Quantitative Finance and Financial Derivatives, as well as Data Science and Financial Technologies, has recently addressed the issue.

1° dicembre 1970: il divorzio in Italia è legge

È il primo dicembre del 1970. “L'Italia è un Paese moderno”, titolano i giornali in caratteri cubitali. E ancora: “Ha vinto la libertà”, e poi “Vittoriosa conclusione di una giusta battaglia”.

A journey through the world’s food cultures

The excitement following the purchase of a ticket, the thrill of getting on a plane and landing in distant lands to immerse yourself in a completely different culture. What once (which by the way seems to be so far away) could have happened after setting aside some money,  planning your holidays at work and combing through every flight and accommodation related website, now, in time of coronavirus, it almost seems like a pipe dream. However, restrictions imposed by governments have not curbed the thirst for exploration of millions of travelers, who keep dreaming of the day when they will finally be able to fly again.  In the absence of the opportunity to go to another country, one must be creative. If you cannot travel with your body, you can always travel with your mind...
