An event dedicated to the importance of innovation for companies and citizens. Acea is an integrated multi-utility, a leading player in the Italian market, founded in 1909.

In the last years, the Roman organization has invested efforts and energies to digitalize its working systems and educate its employees on artificial intelligence.

Most believe data as a threat for the future. However, 90% of data have been produced in the last two years. This increase allows to compare different variables and predict potential issues in many sectors.

One of the first companies around the world to understand the impact of technology in daily activities has been Google. In its first 20 years, Google has been a pioneer in proving new approaches based on new technologies. Moreover, the company is supporting projects across various sectors such as self-driving cars. A technology that could improve road safety, connect infrastructures and reduce traffic congestion and pollution.

Artificial intelligence continues to evolve day by day. In this context, the contribution of start -ups could be fundamental in finding a solution to unsolved problems both for public and private sector.

Greenrail, for example, is an Italian start up that has developed smart railway sleepers, with

secondary raw materials, which allow a sustainable infrastructural development in tune with new frontiers.  

Another innovative start up presented at the event, was Solenica, which has created a solar

mirror that captures solar energy and brings natural light into closed spaces.  

Different businesses but the same goal: combining technology and sustainability to make the

world a better place to live.
