AI to stop the Dumbledore Pandemic

It makes no noise and is barely heard of yet. Yet in 2019 globally it claimed the lives of 4.9 million people and it is estimated that the number could rise to 10 million per year by 2050, making it the leading cause of death in the West, ahead of heart attacks and strokes. All the numbers are beginning to be in place for public attention to focus on antimicrobial resistance (AMR), a.k.a. The Silent Pandemic, recently listed by the World Health Organization as one of the ten most dangerous threats to public health.

Lugano as a laboratory for the study of digital data

Monitoring the state of Lugano's health to obtain information on temperature, humidity, air quality, brightness and noise, involving citizens in the collection of digital data and promoting their understanding. It is from this assumption that the project Technology Environment Skills (TAC) started, which from 2020 to 2021 involved a number of fourth and fifth grade pupils. TAC introduced innovative teaching on the topic of digital data to bring the youngest children closer to the use of digital technologies, and at the same time encouraged a sense of active citizenship, aimed at developing sustainable and environmentally friendly behaviour.
