Turin is preparing to host an important event looking at how new technologies are leading global socio-economic organisation towards a decentralised, distributed model similar to a network.
The Network Society World Congress will be held on Thursday, 15 October, at the Innovation Centre in the new skyscraper designed by Renzo Piano for Intesa Sanpaolo. Promoted by Network Society Research, a no-profit organisation established in 2014 by entrepreneur, innovator and Singularity University advisor David Orban, it is the first international congress to bring together entrepreneurs, innovators, academics and “change experts” from all over the world.

Dotwords, the Language Service Provider that develops cloud-based IT solutions for translation and localisation management from and to any language, with which Amapola has a strategic partnership on business internationalisation issues, is promoting and sponsoring the event. Dotwords shares the values and vision of the Network Society Project to promote a localisation and multilingual culture in organisations active in global competitive arenas and foster an open, shared multilingual vision of the future.

With 27 ambassadors from 25 nations, the Network Society movement analyses the way the exponential acceleration brought by new technologies – robotic automobiles, hydroponic crops, cryptocurrencies, health monitoring devices, and many others – is changing global socio-economic organisation. The new direction of travel is towards a decentralised, distributed model, more similar to a network than the traditional hierarchical structures of the current Nation State and classic corporate organisation structures.
The delegates intend to plan a series of concrete measures to be implemented over the next 12 months.
Italy will be represented by Stefano Quintarelli who will deliver the keynote speech “Le sfide della legislazione esponenziale” [the challenges of exponential legislation].

The date is with the Network Society World Congress on Thursday 15 October, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Innovation Centre in Turin.
