Back to the future with SOTN2016


After the previous edition held in Milan, we’re glad to announce that this year State of the Net 2016 will be held in Trieste (Italy) on the 28th and 29th of October.

The office come back aside SOTN for this 6th edition.


This october the conference will be hosted by the Stazione Marittima on the river side in the city centre of Trieste. On Friday, October the 28th we will host a preview with the participation of local institutions of Friuli Venezia Giulia, while on Saturday the 29th we will have the international main event. We will update you about the program, the speakers and all the other details in the next few days.


“Facts.” will be the main theme of State of the Net 2016.


While the open internet allows for the best fact checking ever available, many are trapped in echo chambers where lies keep bouncing around until theysound like truth and resonate with their beliefs. The press is under pressure and sometimes willing to trade quality and analysis for attention. All this is affecting how we decide, vote, participate in public life.

And while people struggle with facts, machines are becoming very good at processing reality and finding new meanings: from storing “truth” in the blockchain to develop artificial intelligence able to interpret and predict our world and drive around town.
