Article on a New Approach to Humanistic Education by President Struppa and Professor Napoletani appears on Il Corriere della Sera

President Daniele Struppa and Professor Domenico Napoletani published an innovative take on humanistic education in one of Italy’s most respected newspapers, Il corriere della sera

Big data and machine learning have become pervasive in our day-to-day activities, starting with the way we search for information on the web. The authors explore how big data is changing our relation to knowledge and the radical implications for our educational system. In their article, they suggest that we need to rediscover the significance of our senses for analogical knowledge, if we want a humanistic approach to education to thrive on our reliance on data and machines.
