Luiss Debates are created to foster interaction between scholars and the business community, national and international institutions, and different social actors. Thus, by producing relevant and insightful knowledge that positively impacts the world, they promote social sciences as actionable disciplines that can translate theories into social and economic progress.
Over the past months, Luiss Debates have been held on topics such as sustainability and innovation, leadership, artificial intelligence, and the ethical implications of algorithms. On September 23rd, Luiss will host another debate on the future of algorithms in the era of artificial intelligence.
Giuseppe F. Italiano, Antonio Sassano and Alessandra Spada will discuss the future of algorithms and their applications to several domains. This debate stems from the research project AHeAd (Efficient Algorithms for HArnessing Networked Data) which was recently funded as a project of relevant national interest (PRIN) by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR).

Alessandra Spada has a 25-year experience in Large Enterprise & SME as a leader for Industrial and Research & Development projects in digital technologies. Alessandra is currently Alkemy's Chief Technology and Research Officer, head of the Alkemy R&D laboratory. She is also co-founder and CTO of the innovative startup Catchy, dealing with Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Internet of Things, Data/Geo Intelligence and storytelling on data, and is also Strategy & Tech advisor for the Digital Transformation and Smart Metering projects of the startup Joule 4.0 and the Conscoop group. In recent years, her experience has focused on European projects on Smart Cities, Health, Transport and Logistics, Culture and Tourism. She founded the Observatory of Decentralize Artificial Intelligence that supports the Decentralized AI Community.
Antonio Sassano is the Chairman of Fondazione Bordoni and a Professor of Operations Research at "Sapienza" University of Rome. He has been studying the mathematical structure of hard optimization problems, and has applied his research skills to model and solve challenging “real-life instances”. In particular, throughout the years he has had an amazing socio-economic impact outside of academia: indeed, he helped designing the Italian Frequency Plan for Terrestrial Analog Television in 1998, the Frequency Plan for FM-Radio and the DAB Frequency Plan in 2002, the 3-SFN DVB-T Frequency Plan in 2003 and the SFN DVB_T Frequency Plan in 2010. Furthermore, he has been one of the advisors of the Italian Government in the auction procedures for the UMTS licenses (2001) and the WLL licenses (2002).
Giuseppe F. Italiano is Professor of Computer Science at Luiss. He holds a PhD from Columbia University. Most of his research is centered around the design, analysis and engineering of algorithms for big data sets, with applications to several areas, including graph theory, social network analysis, computer and network security, and computational biology. His background, which includes also a five-year experience in industrial research, puts him in a unique position to carry out work that combines basic research with strong focus on applications. In 2016 Giuseppe was nominated EATCS Fellow for his “fundamental contributions to the design and analysis of algorithms for solving theoretical and applied problems in graphs and massive data sets, and for his role in establishing the field of algorithm engineering”.
