Intesa Sanpaolo Innovation Center hosted the presentation of the new course of study in the presence of the Metropolitan Archbishop of Turin, Monsignor Cesare Nosiglia, and the President of Intesa Sanpaolo, Gian Maria Gros-Pietro.

The aim of the course, activated by the Salesian University Institute Turin Rebaudengo (IUSTO) in collaboration with the Digital Apostolate, is to put the human being as a central reference and point of arrival in the design and management of new digital technologies, enriching them with an ethical perspective. Thus a new professional figure is born, that of the anthonomist: a professional who brings the human to the center of a production process of high-tech goods or services.

Intesa Sanpaolo Innovation Center will actively collaborate with IUSTO by making the know-how of its experts available, opening its laboratories and work teams to students and creating opportunities for contact with national and international high-tech partners.

The new master’s degree program structured by IUSTO will guarantee a
specialist training in the various fields of applied psychology
innovation, artificial intelligence, cognitive ergonomics, usercentred design and human-driven design of sustainable products and services to support well-being and social inclusion.
The acquisition of an adequate set of professional skills will be promoted
through a training action with a significant experiential declination,
which will combine a core of theoretical-methodological teaching with activities
practices such as workshops, exercises and internships. In order to reach the
course objectives, students will be trained on subjects such as intelligence
artificial, machine learning, programming and algorithmics.

Graduates in Psychology applied to digital innovation will be among the first
‘anthronomists’ in Italy, figures who will contribute to enriching technologies
innovative of an ethical and human-centered perspective, through activities such as: the
design of models for the reorganization of human interfaces e
complex systems, improving the design of human-machine interaction e
of the user-experience, the prevention and treatment of psychological distress
consequent to the use of new technologies, the re-interpretation of the role and of the
objectives of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms in
3 an ethical and social perspective, the application of the best known models of innovation
with a view to value-driven innovation
