Inspiring the future, one TED Talk at a time.
Ideas worth spreading
The TED mission incorporates a commitment to make knowledge accessible to all, sharing innovation, tools, thinking and good practices that can help to understand the present and imagine the future.
It is precisely this concept of “imagining the future” that overlaps with Onit’s perspective. Indeed, Onit has always recognized a kindred spirit in the TEDx circuit not only because the topics covered often deal with technology, information technology and innovation but also and above all because of its role in inspiring the future.
This is why Onit uses its own resources to contribute to spreading the ideas proposed by TEDx and supports the activities of TEDxCesena as a Premium Partner.In addition to the shared perspectives mentioned this choice expresses Onit’s commitment to the territory.
Below are some “ideas worth spreading”, in the hope that they may inspire everyone's future

How to Fix the "Bugs" in the Net-Zero Code
There are several “bugs” in the current computing that aims to tackle climate change. So says an expert in this field..
Lucas Joppa, Microsoft's first chief environmental officer, explains how important it is to consider the goal of Net-Zero carbon emissions through the eyes of software developers to find the right program for the required results.
We can truly say: “Hello, World!”
How to Fix Broken Supply Chains
How can manufacturing companies cope with the growing complexity of Supply Chains and Operations?
According to Dustin Burke of the Boston Consulting Group, we have to review networks and innovate processes, relying on digital technologies and the precious support of Artificial Intelligence
At Onit, we fully agree with him!
How Does Artificial Intelligence Learn?
We use Machine Learning technologies ever more frequently to make better decisions regarding work, health, and safety.
In this informative video from the TED platform, we discover how machines learn automatically and how, by communicating with each other, they teach each other what they have learned.
Features that enable them to offer valuable support to facilitate people's decision-making processes.
How Humans and AI Can Work Together to Create Better Businesses
A “Human plus AI” approach, in which artificial intelligence does not replace humans but works alongside them to aid decision-making.
According to business technologist Sylvain Duranton, this is the correct solution to prevent companies from falling into an “algocracy”: a stupid, inefficient, and harmful form of government by algorithms.
How can we achieve “Human plus AI”?
Here’s the formula!
A Delightful Way To Teach Kids About Computers
Linda Liukas is a programmer who is convinced that coding is like a felt-tip pen: a tool used to express yourself with color and creativity. Just as Picasso claimed that all children were artists, Linda believes it is important that the young learn to appreciate the creative possibilities offered by computers.
This approach will allow the next generation to be optimistic and courageous as they grow up with technology, without losing their natural inclination for creativity that will enable them to improve the world around them.
The Value of Your Humanity in an Automated Future
- What is the role of humans in a world increasingly characterized by automation and artificial intelligence?
- Will robots completely replace people in the workplace?
- Must we really become more technical, computer-savvy, precise and productive every day to survive?
In a scenario where we seem bound to compete with machines, Kevin Roose, a tech journalist with the NY Times, makes the case that the opposite is true: we must focus on what makes us human.
IT Experience… with a human touch!
How We Can Find Ourselves in Data
Graphs, percentages, and tables.
These are generally seen as the “standard” tools for organizing and presenting data to render them comprehensible... but are they the most effective?
Giorgia Lupi works with data every day and loves them, but she is very clear about one thing: she is addressing people.
That's why in this TED she introduces the concept of “data humanism” and shares her quest for information management systems that include some human qualities such as empathy and imperfection.
This is the only way to effectively translate data into something that can truly be seen, perceived, and fully understood. A nice starting point for your next company presentation, don't you think?
Personal Excellence Factors in a Winning Team
What are the factors of excellence that create a “winning” team?
The answer is provided in this video by Leonardo Milani, psychologist, founder, and trainer of wellness psychology as well as mental trainer of the Italian Air Force aerobatic display team “Frecce Tricolori” for over 20 years.
Here in Onit we know his approach well as Leonardo Milani has collaborated with us several times to train our “winning” teams. He has guided them through a process aimed at acquiring greater awareness of group roles and dynamics.
Quality training that has brought many benefits in terms of strengthening team spirit and collaboration to achieve common goals.
Everything Around You Can Become a Computer
Technology has to make existing things better while maintaining their original purpose.
Given our passion for #innovation, this sentence immediately captured our attention.
Interaction designer Ivan Poupyrev used this sentence when presenting a technology that integrates with the things around us, the things we touch and use every day, connecting them to #digital life and enriching them with new functionality. All without eliminating or changing the original purpose for which those things were created.
Thus, a jacket can control a mobile phone without losing its principal use as a jacket. The future? A “tailor-made” computer.
