Information Technology (IT) is significantly impacting on our daily life. The perception of  the world around us, our interactions as well as the understanding we have of our existence and our responsibilities are going through a radical transformation. Figuring out the extent to which artificial intelligence is actually improving our lives and the ability of digital technologies to lay the foundation for a new didactic approach, are just two examples of the unresolved issues at the center of the scheduled debates. Given the importance the topic has for the future, the views of scientists will be enriched with those of other specialists so as to give us some fresh insight on what really matters today.Maurizio Ferraris is an Italian philosopher currently Professor of theoretical Philosophy at the University of Turin, where he leads the LabOnt (Laboratory of ontology).
